• #### Character varieties and harmonic maps to R-trees ﻿

(1998-10)
We show that the Korevaar-Schoen limit of the sequence of equivariant harmonic maps corresponding to a sequence of irreducible $SL_2({\mathbb C})$ representations of the fundamental group of a compact Riemannian manifold ...
• #### On the Morgan-Shalen compactification of the SL(2,C) character varieties of surface groups ﻿

(1998-10)
A gauge theoretic description of the Morgan-Shalen compactification of the SL(2, C) character variety of the fundamental group of a hyperbolic surface is given in terms of a natural compactification of the moduli space ...
