Field theories of class S, quantisation of Hitchin’s moduli spaces, and conformal field theory Teschner, Joerg


The aim of this talk will be to review some aspects of the triangle of existing relations between N = 2 supersymmetric gauge theories of class S, Hitchin’s moduli spaces (classical and quantised), and conformal field theory. My plan is to address the following two questions: (i) What’s the relevance of the (quantised) moduli spaces of flat connections for class S theories ? (ii) What’s the relation between the quantum theory of Hitchin’s moduli spaces and conformal field theory ?
