VIRTUAL SEMINAR SERIES -- INTEGRABLE SYSTEMS: Tyurin data, non-Abelian Cauchy kernels and the Goldman bracket

Marco Bertola (SISSA)

Wednesday 24th June, 2020 14:00-15:00 Zoom seminar hosted by ICMS


In this talk I will start with a review of the notion of moduli of (stable) vector bundles expressed by Tyurin in late '60s. For each (stable) vector bundle E of rank n and degree ng we can associate a matrix kernel (the non-Abelian Cauchy kernel) which is written explicitly in terms of the Tyurin data and the ordinary third kind differentials. Using the Cauchy kernel (and additional datum of divisor of degree g) we construct a map from the cotangent bundle to the moduli space to the space of representations of the fundamental group of the surface. The final goal is to show that the complex-analytic canonical symplectic structure on the cotangent bundle is mapped to the symplectic structure introduced by Goldman on the space of representations. The main tool is the "Malgrange-Fay" form, expressing the tautological form on the cotangent bundle; it has also an interesting algebro--geometric relevance because this form has a pole along the non-Abelian Theta divisor whose residue is interpreted as dimension of an appropriate space. Joint work (in progress) with C. Norton, G. Ruzza.
