Abstract

We show that the prequantum line bundle on the moduli space of flat SU(2) connections on a closed Riemann surface of positive genus has degree 1. It then follows from work of Lawton and the second author that the classifying map for this line bundle induces a homotopy equivalence between the stable moduli space of flat SU(n) connections, in the limit as n tends to infinity, and $$ {\mathbb C}P^\infty $$ C P ∞ . Applications to the stable moduli space of flat unitary connections are also discussed.
