By Andrew H. Wallace

This self-contained therapy assumes just some wisdom of genuine numbers and actual research. the 1st 3 chapters specialise in the fundamentals of point-set topology, and then the textual content proceeds to homology teams and non-stop mapping, barycentric subdivision, and simplicial complexes. workouts shape an essential component of the textual content. 1961 variation.

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

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

This ebook provides the 1st steps of a conception of confoliations designed to hyperlink geometry and topology of three-d touch constructions with the geometry and topology of codimension-one foliations on third-dimensional manifolds. constructing virtually independently, those theories in the beginning look belonged to 2 assorted worlds: the speculation of foliations is a part of topology and dynamical platforms, whereas touch geometry is the odd-dimensional 'brother' of symplectic geometry.

Since A2φ,Hc −1 acts on S · (T ∗ X, π ∗ F )∗ , we get the identity in End (S · (T ∗ X, π ∗ F )∗ ), ∗ T ∗X 1 = dTHcX , dφ,Hc A2φ,Hc −1 . 16), we deduce that S · (T ∗ X, π ∗ F )∗ , dTHcX is exact. 13). 8) and the fact that A2φ,Hc is hΩ (T X,π F ) selfadjoint, if a ∈ S · (T ∗ X, π ∗ F )0 , a ∈ S · (T ∗ X, π ∗ F ), we get 0 a, A2n φ,Hc a hS · (T ∗ X,π∗ F ) = 0. 17) that S (T X, π F )0 and S (T X, π F )∗ are mutually hS (T X,π F ) · ∗ ∗ orthogonal. Since hS (T X,π F ) is nondegenerate, we get the second part of ∗ T ∗X our theorem.

First we use the canonical isomorphism Λ· (T X) Λn−· (T ∗ X) ⊗Λn (T X) . 6), we get the isomorphism Λ· (T ∗ T ∗ X) π ∗ Λ· (T ∗ X) ⊗Λn−· (T ∗ X) ⊗Λn (T X) . 7) will now be generated by e , . . , en . Set λ0 = ei iebi . 8) Then we conjugate the operator obtained by the ﬁrst transformation by e−λ0 . Let T 0 , p be given by T 0 , p = T fαH , ei , p f α ei . 9) A ﬁnal conjugation is done by conjugating the operator we obtained before M by exp T 0 , p . Starting from CM φ,H−ω H , Dφ,H−ω H , we obtain the operators M M Cφ,Hc −ωH , Dφ,Hc −ωH .

Let k : X → T ∗ X be the embedding of X as the zero section of T ∗ X. Let H · (T ∗ X, π ∗ F ) (resp. H c,· (T ∗ X, π ∗ F )) be the cohomology of T ∗ X (resp. with compact support) with coeﬃcients in π ∗ F . Then, classically, H · (T ∗ X, π ∗ F ) = H · (X, F ) , H c,· (T ∗ X, π ∗ F ) = H ·−n (X, F ⊗ o(T X)) . 1) The ﬁrst isomorphism comes from the maps k ∗ : Ω· (T ∗ X, π ∗ F ) → Ω· (X, F ) HODGE THEORY, THE HYPOELLIPTIC LAPLACIAN AND ITS HEAT KERNEL 45 and π ∗ : Ω· (X, F ) → Ω· (T ∗ X, π ∗ F ). The second is the Thom isomorphism.
