9780387533407: Heat Kernels and Dirac Operators (Grundlehren Der Mathematischen Wissenschaften)

In this book, the Atiyah-Singer index theorem for Dirac operators on compact Riemannian manifolds and its more recent generalizations receive simple proofs. The main technique which is used is an explicit geometric construction of the heat kernels of a generalized Dirac operator. The first four chapters could be used at the text for a graduate course on the applications of linear elliptic operators in differential geometry and the only prerequisites are a familiarity with basic differential geometry. Several chapters deal with other preparatory material.

From the Back Cover:

In the first edition of this book, simple proofs of the Atiyah-Singer Index Theorem for Dirac operators on compact Riemannian manifolds and its generalizations (due to the authors and J.-M. Bismut) were presented, using an explicit geometric construction of the heat kernel of a generalized Dirac operator; the new edition makes this popular book available to students and researchers in an attractive paperback. The first four chapters could be used as the text for a graduate course on the applications of linear elliptic operators in differential geometry and the only prerequisites are a familiarity with basic differential geometry. The next four chapters discuss the equivariant index theorem, and include a useful introduction to equivariant differential forms. The last two chapters give a proof, in the spirit of the book, of Bismut's Local Family Index Theorem for Dirac operators. This book will be of interest to graduate students and researchers in differential geometry, Arakelov geometry, group representation theory and mathematical physics.
