This is an advanced graduate course for master and phd
students as well as researchers who are interested in
Higgs bundles. In particular the course will serve as a
preparation for the GRK summer school on Higgs bundles.
The course description can be found here.
A good introductory
reference are the lecture notes of Andrew Neitzke which
can be found here.

course can be found in:
