Differential Geometry. Proc. conf. Lyngby, 1985

The Nordic summer season tuition 1985 offered to younger researchers the mathematical points of the continuing examine stemming from the examine of box theories in physics and the differential geometry of fibre bundles in arithmetic. the amount contains papers, usually with unique strains of assault, on twistor tools for harmonic maps, the differential geometric points of Yang-Mills idea, advanced differential geometry, metric differential geometry and partial differential equations in differential geometry.

Geometric Aspects of Functional Analysis: Israel Seminar (GAFA) 1986–87

This is often the 3rd released quantity of the court cases of the Israel Seminar on Geometric facets of practical research. the big majority of the papers during this quantity are unique examine papers. there has been final 12 months a powerful emphasis on classical finite-dimensional convexity idea and its reference to Banach area conception.

Lectures on the geometry of quantization

Those notes are in accordance with a path entitled "Symplectic Geometry and Geometric Quantization" taught by means of Alan Weinstein on the college of California, Berkeley (fall 1992) and on the Centre Emile Borel (spring 1994). the one prerequisite for the direction wanted is a data of the fundamental notions from the idea of differentiable manifolds (differential varieties, vector fields, transversality, and so on.

Example text

Then deg (sx0 ) = +1 if x0 ∈ U , 0 if x0 ∈ /U . Proof. We use the diﬀerential deﬁnition of degree. If x0 ∈ / U , then s−1 x0 (0) = ∅, −1 hence deg (sx0 ) = 0. If x0 ∈ U then sx0 (0) = {x0 } and x0 is a regular value with D(sx0 ) = id hence deg (sx0 ) = sgn (D(sx0 )x0 ) = 1. 2. Fixed point index We will use the degree to deﬁne the ﬁxed point index which is the algebraic measure of the number of ﬁxed points (cf. 1)) of a continuous selfmap. Let X be a topological space, U its subset and f: U → X a map.

Now the product formula for the degree follows from the commutativity of the diagram Hn+n (U ×U , U ×U \(f ×f )−1 (0)) (f×f )∗ /H n+n (Rn ×Rn , Rn ×Rn \0) =  Hn+n ((U, U \f −1 (0))×(U , U \f −1 (f×f )∗ (0))) =  Hn ((U, U \f −1 (0))⊗Hn (U , U \f /H  n+n = (Rn ×Rn , Rn ×Rn \0) = −1 (0)))  / H (Rn, Rn \0)⊗H (Rn , Rn \0) n n f∗ ⊗f∗ since the homology element representing the orientation z(f×f )−1 (0) ∈ Hn+n (U × U , U × U \ (f × f )−1 (0)) corresponds to zf −1 (0) ⊗ zf −1 (0) ∈ Hn ((U , U \ f −1 (0)) ⊗ Hn (U , U \ f −1 (0))) by the left vertical arrows.

Now ind (f0 ) = deg (p1 − f0 ) = deg (p1 − f1 ) = ind (f1 ). 10) Lemma (Multiplicativity). If f: U → E, f : U → E are compactly ﬁxed, then so is f × f : U × U → E × E and ind (f × f ) = ind (f) · ind (f ). Proof. 13). Now ind (f ×f ) = deg (id ×id’−f ×f ) = deg (id−f) deg (id’−f ) = ind (f)·ind (f ). The ﬁxed point index possesses also a very important property which will enable us to extend its deﬁnition to a much larger class of spaces. 11) Lemma (Commutativity Property). Let U ⊂ E, U ⊂ E be open subsets of Euclidean spaces and let f: U → E and g: U → E be continuous maps.
