Generators, relations and symmetries in pairs of 3×3 unimodular matrices

Article, Preprint English OPEN
Lawton, Sean;

Denote the free group on two letters by F2 and the SL(3,C)-representation variety of F2 by R = Hom(F2, SL(3,C)). There is a SL(3,C)-action on the coordinate ring of R, and the geometric points of the subring of invariants is an affine variety X. We determine explicit mi... View more
