|Title:||Higgs bundles and index theory|
|Seminar:||Noncommutative Geometry Seminar|
|Speaker:||Eric Korman, University of Pennsylvania|
|Secondary index theorems give information about additional structures on the index bundle (e.g. a flat connection), which are not detectable by the usual families index theorem. In this talk, I will discuss such an index theorem for Higgs bundles. I will describe the characteristic classes of Higgs bundles that are used in the theorem and also explain the connections with Bismut and Lott's index theorem for flat vector bundles.|
