The character variety of a manifold is a moduli space of representations of its fundamental group into some fixed gauge group. In this talk I will outline the construction of a fully extended topological field theory in dimension 4, which gives a uniform functorial quantization of the character varieties of low-dimensional manifolds, when the gauge group is reductivealgebraic (e.g. GL_N).

I’ll focus on important examples in representation theory arising from the construction, in genus 1: spherical double affine Hecke algebras (DAHA), difference-operator deformations of the Grothendieck-Springer sheaf, and the construction of irreducible DAHA modules. The general constructions are joint with David Ben-Zvi and Adrien Brochier, and development of several of the examples are joint with Martina Balagovic and Monica Vazirani.
