DESCRIPTION:Speaker: Nikita Nikolaev\nhosted by Tamas Hausel\nAbstract: I w
ill describe an approach to studying meromorphic connections on vector bun
dles called abelianisation. This technique has its origins in the works of
Fock-Goncharov (2006) and Gaiotto-Moore-Neitzke (2013)\, as well as the W
KB analysis. Its essence is to put rank-n connections on a complex curve X
in correspondence with much simpler objects: connections on line bundles
over an n-fold cover Σ -> X. The point of view is similar in spirit to
abelianisation of Higgs bundles\, aka the spectral correspondence: Higgs
bundles on X are put in correspondence with rank-one Higgs line bundles on
a spectral cover Σ -> X. However\, unlike Higgs bundles\, abelianisat
ion of connections requires the introduction of a new object\, which we ca
ll the Voros cocycle. The Voros cocycle is a cohomological way to encode o
bjects such as ideal triangulations that appeared in Fock-Goncharov\, spec
tral networks that appeared in Gaiotto-Moore-Neitzke\, as well as the conn
ection matrices appearing in the WKB analysis. By focusing our attention o
n the simplest case of logarithmic singularities with generic residues\, I
will describe an equivalence of categories\, which I call the abelianisat
ion functor\, between sl(2)-connections on X satisfying a certain transver
sality condition and rank-one connections on an appropriate 2-fold spectra
l cover Σ -> X. This presentation is based on the work completed in
my thesis (2018) and recent extensions thereof.
