We review known results on the relations between conformal field theory, the quantization of moduli spaces of flat PSL(2,R)-connections on Riemann surfaces, and the quantum Teichmueller theory.

Gluing theory of Riemann surfaces and Liouville conformal field theory

We study the gluing theory of Riemann surfaces using formal algebraic geometry, and give computable relations between the associated parameters for different gluing processes. As its application to

Quantisation of Super Teichmüller Theory

We construct a quantisation of the Teichmüller spaces of super Riemann surfaces using coordinates associated to ideal triangulations of super Riemann surfaces. A new feature is the non-trivial

Confluent conformal blocks of the second kind

We construct confluent conformal blocks of the second kind of the Virasoro algebra. We also construct the Stokes transformations which map such blocks in one Stokes sector to another. In the BPZ

Higher complex structures and higher Teichmüller theory

In this PhD thesis, we give a new geometric approach to higher Teichmuller theory. In particular we construct a geometric structure on surfaces, generalizing the complex structure, and we explore its

A bstractWe perform a canonical quantization of pure gravity on AdS3 using as a technical tool its equivalence at the classical level with a Chern-Simons theory with gauge group SL2ℝ×SL2ℝ$$

$\operatorname{SL}(2,\mathbb{C})$ Chern-Simons theory, flat connections, and four-dimensional quantum geometry

The present paper analyze SL(2,C) Chern-Simons theory on a class of graph complement 3- manifolds, and its relation with classical and quantum geometries on 4-dimensional manifolds. In classical

A slow review of the AGT correspondence

Starting with a gentle approach to the AGT correspondence from its 6d origin, these notes provide a wide survey of the literature on numerous extensions of the correspondence. This is the writeup of

Teichmüller TQFT vs. Chern-Simons theory

A bstractTeichmüller TQFT is a unitary 3d topological theory whose Hilbert spaces are spanned by Liouville conformal blocks. It is related but not identical to PSL(2, ℝ) Chern-Simons theory. To

On the Relation between Quantized Teichmüller Spaces and the Free Field Quantization of Liouville Theory

We investigate how the quantum Teichmuller theory is encoded in the free field quantization of Liouville theory. We show that the 4-point conformal blocks of Liouville theory contain the eigenstates



From Liouville theory to the quantum geometry of Riemann surfaces

The aim of this note is to propose an interpretation for the full (non-chiral) correlation functions of the Liouville conformal field theory within the context of the quantization of spaces of

Quantization of the Hitchin moduli spaces, Liouville theory, and the geometric Langlands correspondence I

We discuss the relation between Liouville theory and the Hitchin integrable system, which can be seen in two ways as a two step process involving quantization and hyperkaehler rotation. The modular

A quantum Teichmüller space

We explicitly describe a noncommutative deformation of the *-algebra of functions on the Teichmüller space of Riemann surfaces with holes that is equivariant with respect to the action of the mapping

Supersymmetric gauge theories, quantization of moduli spaces of flat connections, and conformal field theory

We will propose a derivation of the correspondence between certain gauge theories with N=2 supersymmetry and conformal field theory discovered by Alday, Gaiotto and Tachikawa in the spirit of

The omega deformation, branes, integrability and Liouville theory

We reformulate the Ω-deformation of four-dimensional gauge theory in a way that is valid away from fixed points of the associated group action. We use this reformulation together with the theory of

We describe explicitly a noncommutative deformation of the *-algebra of functions on the Teichm\"uller space of Riemann surfaces with holes equivariant w.r.t. the mapping class group action.
