Quantization of the Hitchin moduli spaces, Liouville theory and the geometric Langlands correspondence. I. (English) Zbl 1442.81059

Summary: We discuss the relation between Liouville theory and the Hitchin integrable system, which can be seen in two ways as a two step process involving quantization and hyper-Kähler rotation. The modular duality of Liouville theory and the relation between Liouville theory and the \(\mathrm{SL}(2)\)-WZNW-model give a new perspective on the geometric Langlands correspondence and on its relation to conformal field theory.
