SFB-Seminar Index Theorie (Teilprojekt C7)
3.2.2014, 13:30 Uhr – 17:00 Uhr


From the index theorem to the heat equation
Prof. Dr. Jean-Michel Bismut
3.2.2014, 16:00 Uhr – 17:00 Uhr

In this talk, Prof. Bismut will review analytic aspects of index theory influenced by algebraic geometry, the local index theorem and Quillen’s superconnections playing a prominent role. The Gaussian aspect of index theory will be emphasized. The hypoelliptic deformations of Hodge theory will be briefly presented. While the heat equation has played a prominent role in standard index theory, methods of index theory applied to the heat equation lead naturally to the evaluation of orbital integrals via hypoelliptic deformations of the standard Laplacian.
