Abstract: The spaces of hyperbolic monopoles are naturally fibred by the monopole mass, and this leads to a nontrivial mass dependence of certain holomorphic data (spectral curves, rational maps, holomorphic spheres) associated to multi-monopoles. In this talk, I will describe a joint calculation with Paul Norbury giving an explicit description of this dependence for monopoles of magnetic charge two.

I hope the title and abstract does not sound too scary, as I will really try to make the talk very accessible.
