Seminar Geometrie

Organiser: Christian Bär

The aim of this seminar is a detailed study of the well-known paper Positive scalar curvature and the Dirac operator on complete Riemannian manifolds by Gromov and Lawson. One of the main themses of the paper is to use th eindex theory of Dirac operators to study the existence and classificiation probelm for metrics with positive scalar curvature on a given a manifold. 

Time: The seminar ftakes place in the week of 18.-23.10.2020 (the date may be subject to change due to the COVID-19 pandemic).

Prerequisites: Solid knowledge of foundations of differential geometry and spin geometry. if you are interested in taking part send an email to
