The heat kernel Lefschetz fixed point formula for the spin-c dirac operator

Interest in the spin-c Dirac operator originally came about from the study of complex analytic manifolds, where in the non-Kähler casethe Dolbeault operator is no longer suitable for getting local formulas for the Riemann-Roch number or the holomorphic Lefschetz number. However, every symplectic manifold (phase space in classical mechanics) also carries an almost complex structure and hence a corresponding spin-c Dirac operator. Using the heat kernels theory of Berline, Getzler, and Vergne,this workrevisits some fundamental concepts of the theory, and presents the application to symplectic geometry. J.J. Duistermaat was well known for his beautiful and concise expositions of seemingly familiar concepts, and this classic studyis certainly no exception. Reprinted as it was originally published,this workis as an affordable textthat will be of interest to a range of researchers in geometric analysis and mathematical physics. Overall this is a carefully written, highly readable book on a very beautiful subject. -Mathematical Reviews The book of J.J.

  • "Reprinted as it originally appeared in the 1990s, this work is as an affordable text that will be of interest to a range of researchers in geometric analysis and mathematical physics. The book covers a variety of concepts fundamental to the study and applications of the spin-c Dirac operator, making use of the heat kernels theory of Berline, Getzlet, and Vergne. True to the precision and clarity for which J.J. Duistermaat was so well known, the exposition is elegant and concise."
