Moduli Spaces

We study the moduli space of polystable G-Higgs bundles for noncompact real Lie groups G of Hermitian type. First, we define the Toledo character and use it to define the Toledo invariant, for which a Milnor-Wood type inequality is proved. Then, for the maximal value of the Toledo invariant, we state a Cayley correspondence for groups of so-called tube type and point out a rigidity theorem for groups of so-called non-tube type. The proofs of these results are based on the Jordan algebra structure related to the tangent space of the Hermitian symmetric space given by G and are independent of the classification theorem of Lie groups. (Joint work with O. Biquard and . Garca-Prada.)
