Fundamental groups, SU(2)-character varieties, and a Lagrangian Floer theory

Paul Kirk (Indiana)

I’ll give an introduction to spaces of representations of fundamental groups of manifolds into SU(2), with examples, and if time permits, will describe a project (with Hedden and Herald) to develop a Lagrangian-Floer theory associated to representation spaces associated to tangle decompositions of knots in 3-manifolds.
