@inproceedings{Esnault2021LocalSW, title={Local systems with quasi-unipotent monodromy at infinity are dense}, author={H'elene Esnault and Moritz Kerz}, year={2021} }

We show that complex local systems with quasi-unipotent monodromy at infinity over a normal complex variety are Zariski dense in their moduli.
