Events for 11 January 2021
SU(2)-representations of the fundamental groups of
3-dimensional manifolds, and in particular such which have the same
homology groups as the 3-sphere, have played a prominent role in
low-dimensional topology in the past decades. An appeal stems from the
fact that the existence of such representations sometimes comes by very
indirect means from interaction with 4-manifold topology. We will review
some history, explain its relationship with gauge theory, and discuss
some recent results.
