Lectures on the topological recursion for Higgs bundles and quantum curves
by Olivia Dumitrescu, Motohico Mulase
Publisher: arXiv 2015
Number of pages: 69
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.

This text is a motivational survey of geometric algebra in 3D. The intention here was to use simple examples and reader is referred to the independent problem solving. The active reading of text is recommended, with paper and pencil in hand.

Introduction to both the geometry and the arithmetic of abelian varieties. It includes a discussion of the theorems of Honda and Tate concerning abelian varieties over finite fields and the paper of Faltings in which he proves Mordell's Conjecture.

Algebraic geometry is the geometric study of sets of solutions to polynomial equations over a field (or ring). In this book the author maintains a reasonable balance between rigor and intuition; so it retains the informal quality of lecture notes.
