Topological recursion in the motivic theory of character varieties

The algebraic structure of the moduli spaces of representations of surface groups (aka character varieties) has been widely studied due to their tight relation with moduli spaces of Higgs bundles. In particular, Hodge-type invariants, like the so-called E-polynomial, has been objective of intense research over the past decades. However, subtler algebraic invariants as their motivic classes in the Grothendieck ring of algebraic varieties remain unknown in the general case.

In this talk, we will construct a Topological Quantum Field Theory that computes the motivic classes of representation varieties. This tool gives rise to an effective computational method based on topological recursion on the genus of the surface. As application, we will use it to compute the motivic classes of parabolic $\operatorname{SL}(2,\mathbb{C})$-character varieties over any compact orientable surface.

Please note the earlier starting time 11h15!

Also please note that there is a second TQFT Club talk on the same day starting at 15h.
