Braid groups and Hodge theory

Abstract

This paper gives an account of the unitary representations of the braid group that arise via the Hodge theory of cyclic branched coverings of P, highlighting their connections with ergodic theory, complex reflection groups, moduli spaces of 1-forms and open problems in surface topology.
