Geometry and Topology Seminar: Heat invariants of the Hodge-Laplace operator on Riemannian orbifolds

Presented by Ingrid Membrillo Solis, University of Southampton
21 January 2021 13:05 in Zoom.

An open question in spectral geometry is to determine whether the Laplace spectrum detects the presence of orbifold singularities. In this talk I will show that the Laplace spectrum for functions, along with that for 1-forms, allows one to detect singular points in dimensions two and three. This is joint work with Katie Gittins, Carolyn Gordon, Magda Khalile, Mary Sandoval and Liz Stanhope.

The talk will be online. A Zoom invitation will be sent on Wednesday before the seminar.
