"The P=W conjecture and hyper-Kähler geometry"

The P=W conjecture by de Cataldo, Hausel, and Migliorini suggests a surprising connection between the topology of Hitchin systems and Hodge theory of character varieties. In this talk, we will focus on interactions between topology of Lagrangian fibrations and Hodge theory in general hyper-Kaehler geometries. Such connections shed new light on both the P=W conjecture for Hitchin systems and the Lagrangian base conjecture for compact hyper-Kähler manifolds.

A post-colloquium meet and greet will be held at 2:00 pm using the same Zoom meeting link.
