**Lectures on the topological recursion for Higgs bundles and quantum curves**

by Olivia Dumitrescu, Motohico Mulase

**Publisher**: arXiv 2015**Number of pages**: 69

**Description**:

The paper aims at giving an introduction to the notion of quantum curves. The main purpose is to describe the new discovery of the relation between the following two disparate subjects: one is the topological recursion, that has its origin in random matrix theory and has been effectively applied to many enumerative geometry problems; and the other is the quantization of Hitchin spectral curves associated with Higgs bundles.
