**The Hypoelliptic Laplacian and Ray-Singer Metrics**

This e-book offers the analytic foundations to the speculation of the hypoelliptic Laplacian. The hypoelliptic Laplacian, a second-order operator performing on the cotangent package deal of a compact manifold, is meant to interpolate among the classical Laplacian and the geodesic circulate. Jean-Michel Bismut and Gilles Lebeau identify the elemental practical analytic houses of this operator, that's additionally studied from the viewpoint of neighborhood index thought and analytic torsion.

This publication provides the 1st steps of a concept of confoliations designed to hyperlink geometry and topology of third-dimensional touch buildings with the geometry and topology of codimension-one foliations on three-d manifolds. constructing virtually independently, those theories before everything look belonged to 2 diversified worlds: the idea of foliations is a part of topology and dynamical structures, whereas touch geometry is the odd-dimensional 'brother' of symplectic geometry.

Proof. If A is untwisted, W I x W2 x W 3 with W i c V i. 15, we see that M r is rational, and indeed, 0 * this theorem shows that MF, a Zariski open set in Mr, is isomorphic But then theorem to M~ a Zariski open x ~, in X x X x X = ~ x ~ x ~. is isomorphic to a Zariski open set in (X/WI) x (X/W2) x (X/W3) , x ~ set so MA which is itself isomorphic is rational. Then by [AM, proposition I], H,(M A) is torsion-free. to 52 References [AM] Artin, M. and Mumford, D. Some elementary examples of unirational varieties which are not rational, Proc.
