    Conformal Geometry, representation theory and de Rham cohomology

    Friday 29th June, 12-1pm, Carslaw 159.

    Tools from representation theory can be used to predict the existence of conformally invariant elliptic differential operators with kernel closely linked to the de Rham cohomology of the manifold. I will discuss this new result and recent progress we have made in the construction of these operators. (This is collaborative work with Tom Branson from University of Iowa.)
