AGR Seminar

The index and the vertex

Prof. Andrei Okounkov (Columbia University)

Please be advised that this seminar will no longer be broadcast over the Access Grid. It will go ahead as a normal seminar for staff members and students at Monash.

Host venue

I will report on a joint work with Nikita Nekrasov. After a review of Dirac operators and their indices, I will explain how and why one computes the indices of Dirac operators acting on instanton moduli spaces for algebraic surfaces and, more recently, algebraic 3-folds.

Seminar convenor
Dr Norman Do
