Publisher: Binghamton University
Number of pages: 137

Description:
This is a lecture-based class on the celebrated Atiyah-Singer index theorem, proved in the 60's by Sir Michael Atiyah and Isadore Singer. Their work on this theorem lead to a joint Abel prize in 2004. Requirements: Knowledge of topology and manifolds.

Differential geometry is deceptively simple. It is surprisingly easy to get the right answer with informal symbol manipulation. We use computer programs to communicate a precise understanding of the computations in differential geometry.

This is arguably one of the deepest and most beautiful results in modern geometry, and it is surely a must know for any geometer / topologist. It has to do with elliptic partial differential operators on a compact manifold.
