**Lectures on the topological recursion for Higgs bundles and quantum curves**

by

**Olivia Dumitrescu, Motohico Mulase**-

**arXiv**

The paper aims at giving an introduction to the notion of quantum curves. The main purpose is to describe the discovery of the relation between the topological recursion and the quantization of Hitchin spectral curves associated with Higgs bundles.
