Slides from my MPIM talk

These slides were written for my introductory talk at Max Planck Institut für Mathematik. They are thought of as an introduction to the subject of character varieties of Kähler and surface groups, and they are supposed to gently bring the audience to the topic of my rigidity of maximal representations paper. That's the theory, but then they are zipped in 15 minutes, so feel free to drop the "gently". Click on the picture below to download the slides!
