The extended Bogomolny equations and generalized Nahm pole boundary condition

Siqi He and Rafe Mazzeo

Geometry & Topology 23 (2019) 2475–2517
Abstract

We develop a Kobayashi–Hitchin-type correspondence between solutions of the extended Bogomolny equations on Σ × + with Nahm pole singularity at Σ ×{0} and the Hitchin component of the stable SL(2, ) Higgs bundle; this verifies a conjecture of Gaiotto and Witten. We also develop a partial Kobayashi–Hitchin correspondence for solutions with a knot singularity in this program, corresponding to the non-Hitchin components in the moduli space of stable SL(2, ) Higgs bundles. We also prove existence and uniqueness of solutions with knot singularities on × +.
