Analogue of the Narasimhan-Seshadri theorem in higher dimensions and holonomy

Friday, November 13, 2009 -
3:00pm to 4:30pm
We will discuss some recent work on natural analogues of the Narasimhan-Seshadri theorem on higher dimensional varieties with some applications to stable bundles on surfaces. The classical result related stability of bundles on projective smooth curves with irreducible unitary representations of the fundamental group. Analogues of holonomy groups and their representations play the corresponding role.
