### Indecomposable parabolic bundles

We study the possible dimension vectors of indecomposable parabolic bundles on the projective line, and use our answer to solve the problem of characterizing those collections of conjugacy classes of × matrices for which one can find matrices in their closures whose product is equal to the identity matrix. Both answers depend on the root system of a Kac-Moody Lie algebra. Our proofs use Ringel’s theory of tubular algebras, work of Mihai on the existence of logarithmic connections, the Riemann-Hilbert...
