## NOTICE UNUSUAL TIME AND LOCATION!!! Daniel Halpern-Leistner (Columbia U.), “The Non-Abelian Localization Theorem and the Verlinde Formula for Higgs Bundles”

–

ABSTRACT: The Verlinde formula is a celebrated explicit computation of the dimension of the space of sections of certain positive line bundles over the moduli space of semistable vector bundles over an algebraic curve. I will describe a recent generalization of this formula in which the moduli of vector bundles is replaced by the moduli of semistable Higgs bundles, a … Read More
