The theory introduced by Fock-Goncharov, called Higher Teichmüller Theory (HTT), is a huge generalization of the classical Teichmüller theory. It has as main ingredients a compact oriented surface S and a semisimple algebraic group G. The HTT provides a description of the space of the so called positive representations of the fundamental group of the surface S into G, showing that these are faithful, discrete and hyperbolic. The goal of this project is to apply the HTT to give a cluster algebras interpretation of a class of integrable systems which are naturally defined on the moduli spaces of $SL_{n}$-local systems on the genus 1 surfaces with a puncture. We also seek understanding the relevance of the HTT in the study of representations of the fundamental group of the surface S into PU(2,1) (the group of holomorphic isometries of the complex hyperbolic space). Such representation are related to the construction of complex hyperbolic geometry.
