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.
