Higgs bundles appeared a few decades ago as solutions to certain equations from physics and have attracted much attention in geometry as well as other areas of mathematics and physics. Here, we take a very informal stroll through some aspects of linear algebra that anticipate the deeper structure in the moduli space of Higgs bundles. (This note was produced for the MFO Snapshots of Modern Mathematics series, which is "designed to promote the understanding and appreciation of modern mathematics… Expand

Symmetry, Integrability and Geometry: Methods and Applications

This survey provides an introduction to basic questions and techniques surrounding the topology of the moduli space of stable Higgs bundles on a Riemann surface. Through examples, we demonstrate how… Expand

In this paper we shall study a special class of solutions of the self-dual Yang-Mills equations. The original self-duality equations which arose in mathematical physics were defined on Euclidean… Expand

We propose a proof for conjectures of Langlands, Shelstad and Waldspurger known as the fundamental lemma for Lie algebras and the non-standard fundamental lemma. The proof is based on a study of the… Expand

On considere la geometrie symplectique des fibres cotangents aux espaces de modules de fibres vectoriels stables sur une surface de Riemann. On montre que ce sont des systemes dynamiques hamiltoniens… Expand
