Introduction to Spectral Networks, III

Daniele Alessandrini (Heidelberg)

Abstract: Abstract: I will give an introduction to the theory of Spectral Networks, developed by Gaiotto, Moore and Neitzke during their research about supersymmetry. These objects have an independent interest for mathematicians, mostly in the theory of surfaces. They can be described as combinatorical objects on the surface, or, equivalently as some orbits associated to a conformal structure on the surface and a collection of holomorphic differentials. The main focus will be on how to use these objects to give coordinates on the moduli spaces of representations of surface groups. These coordinates generalise Fenchel-Nielsen coordinates and Fock-Goncharov coordinates in an especially intriguing way. This is the third of a three lecture series.
