It also features the development of the theory of Cl-linear elliptic operators and the associated index theorem, which connects certain subtle spin-corbordism invariants to classical questions in geometry. However, the topic that you mention seems to be only “accidentally” please correct me if I am wrong related with Spin geometry: Spin geometry is an active field and of course is not exhausted in the book of Lawson and Michelson.


By continuing to use this website, you agree to their use. For instance, a lot of people are interested in the topology of the space of positive scalar curvature metrics on a compact spin manifold. Are you aware of other blogposts, sites, … that feature similar content that I could link to? Email Required, but never shown.

Spin geometry

I need a reminder. Widening slightly the scope of what “spin geometry” might mean, I’d be very happy to know whether this question is an open one or not. I want to pose some of my questions here. Why are the three definition of the trace the same? Such connections are not any more torsion-free I mean metric connections with skew-torsion, vectorial torsion, etc and under specific conditions, they become nice replacements of the L-C connection, in the sense that they preserve the special geometric structure as the L-C connection does in the integrable case.

A Brief Lqwson Of Time: Those are micheloshn and 1. I wonder about the second step. The underlying reason for the connection between spin geometry and positive scalar curvature is the Lichnerowicz formula for the square of the spinor Dirac operator. From the mathematical point of view, the most famous of such type Dirac operator is the ”cubic Dirac operator” with applications both in representation theory and differential geometry. They even have some application of his formalism to physics.


Fundamentals of the relevant supergeometry are in. You can check that these obstructions are in general different from that required by a spin structure, and correspond to what they call a “Lipschitz structure”. I was meaning also the geometry of spin manifolds.

I could than write a blog post specifiying: Corollary 5,11 Why is this established only here? Idea In physics Related concepts References. How are these spaces called?

Are there websites that collect annotations to books? There are a number of things that you could mean by “spin geometry” for which Lawson – Michelsohn is still the basic reference. The relevance of spin geometry in physics rests on the fact that in quantum mechanics and quantum field theory in general and in the standard model of particle physics in particular, fermions such as the electron are mathematically modeled as sections of spin-bundles.

And why is this the same as the usual trace on Hilbert spaces. See details and exclusions.
