Lectures on the topological recursion for Higgs bundles and quantum curves
by Olivia Dumitrescu, Motohico Mulase
Publisher: arXiv 2015
Number of pages: 69
The paper aims at giving an introduction to the notion of quantum curves. The main purpose is to describe the new discovery of the relation between the following two disparate subjects: one is the topological recursion, that has its origin in random matrix theory and has been effectively applied to many enumerative geometry problems; and the other is the quantization of Hitchin spectral curves associated with Higgs bundles.

This book presents algorithmic tools for algebraic geometry and experimental applications of them. It also introduces a software system in which the tools have been implemented and with which the experiments can be carried out.

This is not a typical math textbook, it does not present full developments of key theorems, but it leaves strategic gaps in the text for the reader to fill in. The original text underlying this book was a set of notes for the Math Olympiad Program.
