Quantum representations and Bogomolov-Katzarkov surfaces

Abstract: We will present some results of Eyssidieux and Funar as in arXiv:2112.06726 which are related to the so-called Shafarevich conjecture on holomorphic convexity.

Eyssidieux and Funar use quantum representations of the fundamental group of Riemann surfaces to show that most of the algebraic surfaces proposed by Bogomolov and Katzarkov in the late 90’s are not counterexamples to this conjecture.

Тhe lectures will be held via Zoom.
