Title:Symplectic geometry of the moduli of ordinary differential equations
Seminar:Department of Mathematics Colloquium
Speaker:Leon Takhtajan, Stony Brook University
Abstract:
I will review old and new results on the symplectic structure of 2nd order ordinary differential equations, its connection to quasi-fuchsian deformation spaces and Weil-Petersson geometry of moduli spaces. If time permits, I will explain the relation with the so-called conformal blocks of quantum Liouville theory.
