An Algorithm for Hecke Operators

Hecke operators act on the cohomology of locally symmetric spaces for SL(n,R), and the Hecke eigenvalues are important in number theory and automorphic forms.  When n = 2, the case of classical modular forms, modular symbols (due to Manin) give an algorithm for computing the Hecke operators.  Ash

On some Poisson aspects of moduli stack of Chen connections

The study of the Poisson geometry of the Teichmuller space and the moduli space of local systems gave rise to the discovery of the Goldman bracket of curves on a surface which in turn led Chas and Sullivan to discover string topology operations on chains on the free loop space of
