Supersymmetry and the Atiyah-Singer Index Theorem: Finite dimensional approximation

02.06.2016, 14:15 Uhr  –  Campus Golm, Haus 9, Raum 0.14
Seminar Geometry and Physics

Lars Andersson

This talk will focus on finite dimensional approximations of path integrals.

Witten's heuristic proof of the index theorem using supergeometry is well known but still not fully mathematically understood. We present the approaches to the subject by Witten, Atiyah and Lott (and maybe others) and our understanding of these. This is work in progress!
