Index theory for hyperbolic operators
Mardi, 6 Juin, 2017 - 13:00
Résumé : 

After a short reminder of the Atiyah-Patodi-Singer index theorem I will explain an index theorem that is in many ways analogous, but applies to hyperbolic operators instead of elliptic ones.
In particular it can deal with the Dirac operator on a space-time with compact spacelike part. If there is time I will discuss some applications in physics and the relation to the chiral anomaly
