    Nahm transform of parabolic Higgs bundles on CP1

    We will outline the basic definitions and properties of the named integral transform, with special emphasis on the stationary phase formula and the transformation of the parabolic structure. If time permits we show how our results apply to the Deligne--Simpson problem (joint work in progress with O. Biquard.
