Higgs sheaves in positive characteristic

speaker: Adrian Langer (University of Warsaw)

abstract: I plan to talk about Higgs sheaves on varieties in positive characteristic p that can be lifted modulo p2. In particular, I will prove Bogomolov's inequality in this case. This has interesting applications to semistable Higgs sheaves with vanishing Chern classes. It is well known that in characteristic zero such Higgs sheaves correspond to representations of the fundamental group.
