# Parabolic bundles on elliptic curves

as a warm up for his thesis I would like a student of mine to read something on parabolic bundles. He is reading the famous Atiyah paper on vector bundles on elliptic curves, so I think it would be nice if he could proceed studying parabolics on elliptic curve. Do you know a specific reference? If not, what would you suggest?

• I would certainly not give that paper to a first year graduate student! It is highly technical and difficult. You won't find a specific reference for parabolic bundles on elliptic curves; for a gentle introduction to parabolic bundles I would suggest Seshadri's book "Fibrés vectoriels sur les courbes algébriques", Astérisque 96. – abx Apr 19 '14 at 11:41
• It might be easier to begin with parabolic bundles on $\mathbb{P}^1$. – ulrich Apr 19 '14 at 12:14
