Nigel Hitchin - University of Oxford

will speak on:

Lagrangians and mirror symmetry in the Higgs bundle moduli space

The talk concerns recent work with Tamas Hausel in asking how SYZ mirror symmetry works for the moduli space of Higgs bundles. Focusing on C^*-invariant Lagrangian submanifolds, we use the notion of virtual multiplicity as a tool firstly to examine if the Lagrangian is closed, but  also to open up new features involving finite-dimensional algebras which are deformations of cohomology algebras. Answering some of the questions raised  requires revisiting basic constructions of stable bundles on curves.
