DESCRIPTION:Title: An algebraic construction of K-moduli space\nby Chenyang Xu (Prin
ceton) as part of VBAC Webinar Series\n\n\nAbstract\nK-stability of Fano v
arieties has become a fast developed topic in algebraic geometry. One majo
r output is the construction of moduli spaces of K-(semi\,poly)-stable Fan
o varieties\, which resolves a number of pathological issue for families o
f general Fano varieties. The purely algebraic construction is built on a
systematical study of K-stability using higher dimensional geometry\, incl
uding a more comprehensive understanding of the notion of K-stability (for
Fano varieties)\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: P=W conjectures for character varieties with a symplectic resolution<
/a>\nby Camilla Felisetti (U. Trento) as part of VBAC Webinar Series\n\n\n
Abstract\nCharacter varieties parametrise representations of the fundament
al group of a curve. In general these moduli spaces are singular\, therefo
re it is customary to slightly change the moduli problem and consider smoo
th analogues\, called twisted character varieties. In this setting\, the P
=W conjecture by de Cataldo\, Hausel\, and Migliorini suggests a surprisin
g connection between the topology of Hitchin systems and Hodge theory of c
haracter varieties. In joint work with M. Mauri we establish (and in some
cases formulate) analogous P=W phenomena in the singular case . In particu
lar we show that the P=W conjecture holds for character varieties which ad
mit a symplectic resolution\, namely in genus 1 and arbitrary rank and in
genus 2 and rank 2.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Cohomology of Non-Reductive GIT quotients and unstable Higgs bundles
of rank 2\nby Eloise Hamilton (IMJ-PRG) as part of VBAC Webinar Series
\n\n\nAbstract\nNon-Reductive GIT is a generalisation of GIT which enables
the construction of new moduli spaces. In particular it can be used to co
nstruct moduli spaces for unstable Higgs/vector bundles on a smooth projec
tive curve. The aim of this talk is to describe a method for computing the
Poincare series of Non-Reductive GIT quotients when the initial variety i
s smooth (analogous to the existing method in classical GIT)\, and to show
how it can be applied in practice in the case of unstable Higgs bundles o
f rank 2.\n

inequality for families of algebraic curves and abelian varieties goes bac

nd for systems of Hodge bundles is due to the works by Green-Griffiths-Ker

-Garcia-Prada-Toledo is making a further progress on Arakelov-Milnor inequ
alities.\n\nIn my talk I shall briefly report on my recent work joint with
Xin Lu and Jinbang Yang. We show the Arakelov inequality holds STRICTLY f
or canonical heights of families of n-folds of general type. We also show
it is asymptotically sharp in a sense. Note that this Arakelov inequality
can become actually an equality for families of abelian varieties\, in whi
ch case they are precisely Shimura families.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Maximal variations of Hodge structure and sl2-triples\nby Brian C
ollier (U.C. Riverside) as part of VBAC Webinar Series\n\n\nAbstract\nIn t
his talk we will discuss holomorphic maps from the upper half space into c
ertain homogeneous spaces (period domains) which are equivariant with resp
ect to a representation of the fundamental group of a closed surface. Such
maps arise from Higgs bundles on a Riemann surface which are fixed points
of a $\\mathbb C$* action. When the target is a hermitian symmetric space
\, the Toledo invariant provides an integer invariant which is bounded in
absolute value. Moreover\, representations which maximize the Toledo invar
iant satisfy certain rigidity phenomena and arise from the uniformizing re
presentation of the Riemann surface. We will discuss how to generalize suc
h an invariant for arbitrary period domains\, explain how this invariant i
s bounded and describe how the rigidity phenomena which occur when the inv
ariant is maximized are related to sl2 triples. This is based on joint wor
k with Biquard\, Garcia-Prada and Toledo.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Quantization of moduli spaces and TQFT\nby William Mistegaard (I
ST\, Austria) as part of VBAC Webinar Series\n\n\nAbstract\nThe Reshetikhi
n-Turaev topological quantum field theory (TQFT) was motivated from physic
s by Witten's work on quantum Chern-Simons. In Witten's work quantization
of moduli spaces of flat connections and conformal field theory (CFT) was
presented as two equivalent approaches to construct the Hilbert space asso
ciated to an oriented two-manifold. Both approaches depend a priori on a c
hoice of complex structure on the two-manifold\, although the topological
nature of the theory suggests that the Hilbert space should be independent
of this choice\, and support a projective linear action of the mapping cl
ass group. On the CFT side this topological invariance and the existence o
f a mapping class group action was proven by Tsuchia\, Ueno and Yamada. On
the quantization side it was proven for some two-manifolds independently
by Hitchin and Axelrod\, Della Pietra and Witten. Laszlo proved mathematic
ally that the CFT approach and the quantization approach of Hitchin are eq
uivalent. Finally\, Andersen and Ueno have established that the CFT repres
entations of the mapping class groups are isomorphic to the Reshetikhin-Tu
raev TQFT mapping class group action. In this talk\, we will\; 1) partly r
eview the above story\, 2) review how quantization was used to prove impor
tant results in quantum topology\, and 3) present work in progress joint w
ith Andersen\, which constructs the TQFT-representations of the mapping cl
ass groups from the quantization approach in some of the remaining (parabo
lic cases)\, not previously dealt with by Hitchin or Axelrod-Della Pietra
and Witten.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: A new quantisation scheme for hyperkähler manifolds with Sp(1) symm
etry\nby Alessandro Malusà (University of Toronto) as part of VBAC We
binar Series\n\n\nAbstract\nIt is often the case\, with many (complex) mod
uli problems\, that the resulting spaces come with hyperkähler structures
and symmetries that act non-trivially on the corresponding families of K
ähler forms\, rather than preserving them individually. This makes it del
icate to approach their quantisation\, as a preferred symplectic structure
may not be given or the group action to be quantised may not be symplecti
c with respect to it. The U(1)-action on the Hitchin moduli spaces is an e
xample of this.\nIn an ongoing joint work with Andersen and Rembado\, we a
pproach this problem under the assumption that the symmetry group is an ex
tension of Sp(1) with a transitive action on CP^1\, identified with the as
sociated space of complex structures. This is the case for known examples
such as linear spaces\, the Taub-NUT space\, nilpotent orbits of complex L
ie groups\, the moduli spaces of framed SU(r)-instantons on R^4\, and the
Atiyah-Hitchin manifolds of monopoles on R^3. We propose a new hyperkähle
r quantisation scheme by assuming given a smooth equivariant family of pre
-quantum line bundles\, and by defining a collection of quantum Hilbert sp
aces parametrised by CP^1. The quantisation of the symmetry group may then
be addressed in terms of actions on this family and compatibility with na
turally defined connections. These\, however\, turn out to not be flat in
general\, even projectively\, but we obtain group of representations on sp
aces of holomorphic sections of the family of Hilbert spaces\, rather than
flat ones\, and we therefore propose this space of holomorphic sections a
s the relevant quantization of these SP(1)-symmetric Hyper-Kähler manifol
ds.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Quantisation of moduli spaces of meromorphic connections\, and relat
ions with (irregular) CFT\nby Gabriele Rembado (University of Bonn) as
part of VBAC Webinar Series\n\n\nAbstract\nThe geometry and quantisation
of moduli spaces of unitary flat connections on Riemann surfaces have been
widely studied in the past: as the complex structure on the surface is de
formed the moduli spaces assemble into a local system of symplectic manifo
lds\, and Kähler quantisation turns it into a projectively flat vector bu
ndle.\nThe complexified version brings about holomorphic connections and h
yperkähler manifolds\, requiring new ideas in Kähler quantisation\; defo
rmation quantisation on the other hand has been carried out in greater gen
erality\, namely for moduli spaces of meromorphic connections with irregul
ar singularities.\nIn this talk we will briefly review this story and phra
se the singular case in the same geometric language of the nonsingular one
\, involving flat symplectic fibre bundles: their bases provide an intrins
ic approach to isomonodromic deformations\, and their quantisation provide
s a mathematical approach to irregular singularities in the Wess-Zumino-No

DESCRIPTION:Title: Projectivity of moduli spaces of quiver representations\nby Chia
ra Damiolini (University of Pennsylvania) as part of VBAC Webinar Series\n
\n\nAbstract\nIn a recent work of Alper–Belmans–Bragg–Liang–Tajakk
a\, the authors explore how the theory of good moduli spaces developed by
Alper and Alper–Halpern-Leistner–Heinloth can be used to give an alter
native proof of projectivity of the moduli space of vector bundles on a cu
rve. In today's talk\, we will see that a similar approach can be used to
study projectivity of moduli spaces of representations of acyclic quivers.
Analogies and differences with respect to the case of vector bundles over
curves will be emphasized. This is based on ongoing work with Belmans\, F
ranzen\, Hoskins\, Makarova and Tajakka.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Brill-Noether theory over the Hurwitz space\nby Hannah Larson (S
tanford University and Clay Institute) as part of VBAC Webinar Series\n\n\
nAbstract\nThe main theorems of Brill-Noether theory describe the maps of
general curves to projective space. In particular\, for a general curve C\
, the space of degree d maps C —> P^r is known to be irreducible when it
s expected dimension is positive. However\, in nature\, curves C are often
encountered already equipped with a map to some projective space\, which
may force them to be special in moduli. The simplest case is when C is gen
eral among curves of fixed gonality. For such curves\, previous work has s
hown that the space of maps C —> P^r may have multiple components of var
ying dimensions (Coppens-Martens\, Pflueger\, Jensen-Ranganathan). In this
talk\, I will discuss joint work with Eric Larson and Isabel Vogt that ex
plains these multiple components and proves analogs of all of the main the
orems of Brill-Noether theory in this setting.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: From e-polynomials to TQFTs\nby Marina Logares (UCM\, Madrid) as
part of VBAC Webinar Series\n\n\nAbstract\nMathematics have always served
Physics along history of Science\, not only as a language but as a source
of ideas. The very same is true about Physics as a source of inspiration
for mathematical discoveries. The aim of this talk is to show how certain
algebro-topological invariants\, e-polynomials\, of a G-character variety
serve to construct a TQFT and\, moreover\, how this development allows to
easily explore more general settings for G-character varieties\, such as t
hose related with singular curves.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Mixed Hodge Structures of Character Varieties of Free Groups\nby
Azizeh Nozad (IPM\, Tehran) as part of VBAC Webinar Series\n\n\nAbstract\
nWith G a complex reductive group\, let $X^rG$ denote the G-character vari
eties of free group $F_r$ of rank r\, and $X^{irr}G \\subset X^rG$ be the
locus of irreducible representation conjugacy classes. Using the stratific
ation of $X^rG$ by polystable type coming from affine GIT and the combinat
orics of partitions\, we show that the mixed Hodge structures on the cohom
ology groups of $X^rSL_n$ and of $X^rPGL_n$ and on the compactly supported
cohomology groups of the irreducible loci $X^{irr}SL_n$ and $X^{irr}PGL_n
$ are isomorphic\, for any $n\,r \\in \\mathbb N$. In particular\, this wo
uld imply their E-polynomials coincide\, settling the question raised by L
awton-Muñoz. This is based on joint work with Carlos Florentino and Alfo
nso Zamora\n

from the perspective of certain\ndistinguished surfaces contained in the

DESCRIPTION:Title: Singular symplectic varieties as symplectic quotients of hyperkähle

ies\n\n\nAbstract\nOne possible singular analogue of hyperkähler manifold
s are\nirreducible symplectic varieties\, mainly arising as moduli spaces
of\nsheaves on trivial canonical surfaces and as partial resolution of\nsy
mplectic quotients of hyperkähler manifolds. In this talk I will focus\no
n the second class of examples\, especially in the case of fourfolds. In\n
order to produce new examples\, we will start from the known hyperkähler\
nfourfolds (Hilbert schemes and generalized Kummer) and act on them with\n
natural automorphisms\, for which a systematic analysis is possible. This\
nis the content of a work in progress with Armando Capasso\, Annalisa\nGro

DESCRIPTION:Title: Birational geometry of Calabi-Yau pairs\nby Carolina Araujo (IMP
A\, Brazil) as part of VBAC Webinar Series\n\n\nAbstract\nConsider the fol
lowing problem\, originally posed by Gizatullin: "Which automorphisms of a
smooth quartic K3 surface in $\\mathbb{P}^3$ are induced by Cremona trans
formations of the ambient space?'' When $S$ is a smooth quartic surface i
n $\\mathbb{P}^3$\, the pair $(\\mathbb{P}^3\,S)$ is an example of a Calab
i-Yau pair\, that is\, a mildly singular pair $(X\,D)$ consisting of a nor
mal projective variety X and an effective Weil divisor $D$ on $X$ such tha
t $K_X+D= 0$. In this talk\, I will explain a general framework to investi
gate the birational geometry of Calabi-Yau pairs and how this can be appli
ed to approach Gizatullin's problem. This is a joint work with Alessio Cor
ti and Alex Massarenti.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: The Chow ring of a weighted blowup\nby Dan Abramovich (Brown Uni
versity) as part of VBAC Webinar Series\n\n\nAbstract\nThis is mostly a re
port on work of Brown PhD students Veronica Arena and Stephen Obinna.\nThe
Chow groups of a blowup of a smooth variety along a smooth subvariety is
described in Fulton's book using Grothendieck's "key formula"\, involving
the Chow groups of the blown up variety\, the center of blowup\, and the C
hern classes of its normal bundle.\nIf interested in weighted blowups\, on
e expects everything to generalize directly. This is in hindsight correct\
, except that at every turn there is an interesting and delightful surpris
e\, shedding light on the original formulas for usual blowups\, especially
when one wants to pin down the integral Chow ring of a stack theoretic we
ighted blowup.\nAs an application\, one obtains a quick derivation of a fo
rmula\, due to Di Lorenzo--Pernice--Vistoli and Inchiostro\, of the Chow r
ing of the moduli space $\\overline{M}_{1\,2}$.\n
