DESCRIPTION:We will describe an approach to studying meromorphic connection
s on vector bundles of higher rank in terms of simpler objects: meromorphic
connections on line bundles (aka abelian connections). Roughly speaking\,
given a connection on a vector bundle over a complex curve X\, we extract t
he asymptotic information at the poles and encode it in a flat line bundle
over another complex curve Σ which is an appropriate cover Σ -> X. This app
roach is called abelianisation\, because the nonabelian holonomy data of a
connection on X of higher rank is put in equivalence with abelian holonomy
data of an abelian connection on Σ. We will explain how abelianisation sets
up an equivalence of categories.
