MATH-F511: Global Analysis

2022

Room and Time: Mondays 10:00-11:00 in P.FORUM.I.2066.

Course content: The central topic of the course is the interplay between geometry, topology, and analysis. It turns out that elliptic differential operators on manifolds capture subtle information about the underlying space. For example, the dimension of the kernel of the Hodge Laplacian depends only on the topology of the underlying manifold. The aim of the course is to provide a glimpse in this exciting area of mathematics.
