reference request – Open questions in “Spin geometry” – MathOverflow
I want to understand equation 5. For now I assume that these are the only 2-sheeted coverings. About this product Description The concepts of a spin manifold, spinor fields, Dirac operators, and A-genera are presented comprehensively in this book.
June 16, at 3: I need a reminder. Is it a just symbol for an immersion? Some ideas and thoughts of G. See the history of this page for a list of all contributions to it.
Post as a guest Name. Bilateral 1, 9 How does this fit together? Sasakian, almost Hermitian e.
Spin Geometry (PMS-38), Volume 38
The underlying reason for the connection between spin geometry and positive scalar curvature is the Lichnerowicz formula for the square of the spinor Dirac operator.
Bilateral On the contrary, there are strong arguments that the theory of positive scalar curvature invariants should be considered part of spin geometry.
I have to understand that further, via is not-been-spin an important fact. Anyone willing to discuss this? Ginoux’s book, one finds, ” Email Required, but never shown. There is a Note on page with a reminder how the degree is calculated.
You may also like. No ratings or reviews yet. For example, computing the spectrum of the Dirac operator on certain manifolds is a widely open problem there are a few spaces that we have a complete picture and most of them are homogeneous. Email required Address never made public. On the other hand, there is a plethora of special structures carrying such connections, e. In a way this is my small contribution to a public online errata sheet for the book Spin Geometry.
I could than write a blog post specifiying: I have the impression that the area of “Spin geometry” is not an active research field. Fill in your details below or click an icon to log in: How can this be true?
There are a number of things that you could mean by “spin geometry” for which Lawson – Michelsohn is still the basic reference. The second covering is called trivial. Thanks for the explanation, I see the connection is deep than I expected. This proves that “spin geometry” is not always associated to a spin structure and indeed it is a very rich and subtle construction.
Spin geometry – INSPIRE-HEP
Is there a standard for annotating on-line errata for books? You are commenting using your Twitter account. Spin geometry is an active field and of course is not exhausted in the book of Lawson and Michelson. To find out more, including how to control cookies, see here: Mary Shelley Hardback Fiction Books. Packaging should be the same as what is found in a retail store, unless the item is handmade or was packaged by the manufacturer in non-retail packaging, such as an unprinted box or plastic bag.
Blog Stats 17, hits. The Biology of Belief: I plan to update this blog post in case I come across further questions or answers or errata. Since the deeper applications of these ideas require various general forms of the Atiyah-Singer Index Theorem, the theorems and their proofs, together with all prerequisite material, are examined here in detail.
Having to prove the existence of spincobordisms in order to see that the degree is weel-defined…. Feels like there must be loads of manifolds that are not spin. Spin geometry also plays a central role in supersymmetric quantum field theory such as supergravity.
