Download e-book for kindle: Conformal Differential Geometry: Q-Curvature and Conformal by Helga Baum,Andreas Juhl

By Helga Baum,Andreas Juhl

Conformal invariants (conformally invariant tensors, conformally covariant differential operators, conformal holonomy teams etc.) are of critical importance in differential geometry and physics. famous examples of such operators are the Yamabe-, the Paneitz-, the Dirac- and the twistor operator. the purpose of the seminar used to be to provide the fundamental rules and a few of the new advancements round Q-curvature and conformal holonomy. The half on Q-curvature discusses its starting place, its relevance in geometry, spectral thought and physics. right here the effect of principles that have their starting place within the AdS/CFT-correspondence turns into noticeable.


The half on conformal holonomy describes contemporary class effects, its relation to Einstein metrics and to conformal Killing spinors, and comparable distinctive geometries.
