Symmetric differentials and the fundamental group

Yohan Brunebarbe, Bruno Klingler and Burt TotaroVolume 162, Number 14
Abstract

We show that any smooth complex projective variety whose fundamental group has a complex representation with infinite image must have a nonzero symmetric differential (a section of a symmetric power of the cotangent bundle). Along the way, we produce many symmetric differentials on the base of a variation of Hodge structures.
