Current trends on spectral data for
Higgs bundles V


 Simons Center for Geometry and Physics
May 25-26, 2019

Preceeding the week-long school:

Higgs bundles and their spectral data have had applications in different research areas of mathematics and physics, and these series of Workshops bring together people working on areas tangential to Higgs bundles to learn and teach about novel methods that could be applied in a broad set up.

The meeting is the fourth in the series:
"Website for the series of meetings"

The series of workshops has been presented in cooperation with the Association of Women in Mathematics (AWM) and supports the Non-Discrimination Statement of AWM..
