By Nicole Berline
The first version of this publication provided easy proofs of the Atiyah-Singer Index Theorem for Dirac operators on compact Riemannian manifolds and its generalizations (due to the authors and J.-M. Bismut), utilizing an specific geometric building of the warmth kernel of a generalized Dirac operator; the hot version makes this renowned booklet on hand to scholars and researchers in an enticing softcover. the 1st 4 chapters might be used because the textual content for a graduate path at the purposes of linear elliptic operators in differential geometry and the one necessities are a familiarity with uncomplicated differential geometry. the following 4 chapters speak about the equivariant index theorem, and comprise an invaluable creation to equivariant differential varieties. The final chapters supply an evidence, within the spirit of the e-book, of Bismut's neighborhood kinfolk Index Theorem for Dirac operators.

An introductory textbook at the differential geometry of curves and surfaces in third-dimensional Euclidean house, provided in its easiest, so much crucial shape, yet with many explanatory information, figures and examples, and in a fashion that conveys the theoretical and useful value of the various techniques, tools and effects concerned.
The sector of geometric variational difficulties is fast-moving and influential. those difficulties engage with many different components of arithmetic and feature robust relevance to the examine of integrable platforms, mathematical physics and PDEs. The workshop 'Variational difficulties in Differential Geometry' held in 2009 on the college of Leeds introduced jointly the world over revered researchers from many various parts of the sector.
Dedicated to a major and renowned department of recent theoretical and mathematical physics, this e-book introduces using Lie algebra and differential geometry the way to research nonlinear integrable platforms of Toda kind. Many hard difficulties in theoretical physics are on the topic of the answer of nonlinear platforms of partial differential equations.
Equipment from touch and symplectic geometry can be utilized to unravel hugely non-trivial nonlinear partial and usual differential equations with out resorting to approximate numerical equipment or algebraic computing software program. This booklet explains how it is performed. It combines the readability and accessibility of a complicated textbook with the completeness of an encyclopedia.
