Traces and Determinants of Pseudodifferential Operators

Simon Scott


This text provides a broad account of the theory of traces and determinants on geometric algebras of differential and pseudodifferential operators over compact manifolds. Trace and determinant functionals on geometric operator algebras provide a means of constructing refined invariants in analysis, topology, differential geometry, analytic number theory and QFT. The consequent interactions around such invariants have led to significant advances both in pure mathematics and theoretical physics. As the fundamental tools of trace theory have become well understood and clear general structures hav ... More

Keywords: Traces, determinants, pseudodifferential operators, zeta determinant, residue trace, index theorem, distributions, geometric analysis
