Counting holes with Fourier transform

I will motivate the problem of counting holes on various quaternionic surfaces by recent developments in theoretical physics. An arithmetic Fourier transform technique will be discussed and as an application a proof of a conjecture of Kac from 1982 in the theory of infinite dimensional symmetry groups will be sketched.
