By Helga Baum,Andreas Juhl

Conformal invariants (conformally invariant tensors, conformally covariant differential operators, conformal holonomy teams etc.) are of valuable importance in differential geometry and physics. famous examples of such operators are the Yamabe-, the Paneitz-, the Dirac- and the twistor operator. the purpose of the seminar used to be to provide the elemental rules and a few of the hot advancements round Q-curvature and conformal holonomy. The half on Q-curvature discusses its starting place, its relevance in geometry, spectral idea and physics. right here the effect of rules that have their beginning within the AdS/CFT-correspondence turns into seen.

The half on conformal holonomy describes fresh type effects, its relation to Einstein metrics and to conformal Killing spinors, and similar distinctive geometries.
