Abstract:
We identify the Teichmuller space $T_{g,s,n}$ of (decorated) Riemann surfaces $\Sigma_{g,s,n}$ of genus
$g$, with $s>0$ holes and $n>0$ bordered cusps located on boundaries of holes uniformized by Poincare
with the character variety of $SL(2,R)$monodromy problem. The effective combinatorial description uses
the fat graph structures; observables are geodesic functions of closed curves and $\lambda$lengths of paths
starting and terminating at bordered cusps decorated by horocycles. We derive
Poisson and quantum structures on sets of observables relating them to
quantum cluster algebras of Berenstein and Zelevinsky. A seed of the corresponding quantum cluster algebra corresponds
to the partition of $\Sigma_{g,s,n}$ into ideal triangles, $\lambda$lengths of their sides are cluster variables constituting a seed of the algebra; their number
$6g6+3s+2n$ (and, correspondingly, the seed dimension) coincides with the dimension of $SL(2,R)$character variety given by $[SL(2,R)]^{2g+s+n2}/\prod_{i=1}^n B_i$,
where $B_i$ are Borel subgroups associated with bordered cusps. Moreover, using the explicit parameterization of monodromy elements we can
evaluate the Poisson and quantum algebras of monodromy matrices generated by the Poisson and quantum algebras of $\lambda$lengths and
show that these algebras are quadratic quasiPoisson, or quasiquantum, algebras. These algebras are invariant w.r.t. mutations of cluster algebras,
which correspond to MCG transformations, and can be therefore lifted from $T_{g,s,n}$ to the moduil space $M_{g,s,n}$.
Complexifying the cluster variables we obtain the character variety of $SL(2,C)$monodromy problem.
The talk is based on the joint works with with M. Mazzocco and V. Roubtsov [1, 2, 3].
