New PDF release: Conformal Differential Geometry: Q-Curvature and Conformal

By Helga Baum,Andreas Juhl

Conformal invariants (conformally invariant tensors, conformally covariant differential operators, conformal holonomy teams etc.) are of important value in differential geometry and physics. recognized examples of such operators are the Yamabe-, the Paneitz-, the Dirac- and the twistor operator. the purpose of the seminar used to be to offer the elemental principles and a few of the new advancements round Q-curvature and conformal holonomy. The half on Q-curvature discusses its beginning, its relevance in geometry, spectral conception and physics. the following the impact of rules that have their foundation within the AdS/CFT-correspondence turns into noticeable.

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