Math Course Descriptions

684/685 Advanced Analysis
The goal of this course is to develop the theory of elliptic pseudodifferential operators on compact smooth manifolds, to a sufficient extent to cover all the analysis needed for the proof of the Atiyah-Singer Index Theorem for families. This includes:

Basics of compact operators on Hilbert space.

Basics of vector bundles. (Not analysis, but an essential
ingredient for the analysis.)

Basics of Fredholm operators and families of Fredholm operators
on Hilbert space, and the Fredholm index.

Brief reminder of the basics of the Fourier transform on
{\mathbb{R}}^n.

Sobolev spaces associated to {\mathbb{R}}^n and to smooth
vector bundles on manifolds.

Basics of differential operators and their symbols, on
{\mathbb{R}}^n and on smooth vector bundles on manifolds.

Pseudodifferential operators and the calculus of symbols.

Maps on Sobolev spaces induced by pseudodifferential operators,
including boundedness theorems and compactness theorems
(Rellich’s Lemma).

Elliptic pseudodifferential operators on compact smooth
manifolds are Fredholm.

Time permitting, I will then give a survey of K-theory and a proof (taking some algebraic topology on faith) of the Atiyah-Singer Index Theorem for families.

Material on compact operators and Fredholm theory is put first, since it is important for many functional analysts whose interests are unrelated to the Atiyah-Singer Index Theorem, or even to C*-algebras. As an inducement to C*-algebraists: the only proof I know of the general Bott periodicity theorem in equivariant K-theory, when the group is not abelian, depends on the material above, although backwards: instead of computing the index of a family of elliptic operators using algebraic topological data, it constructs a class in equivariant K-theory by constructing an equivariant family of elliptic operators whose index is the desired class.

Comments about C*-algebras will be made in passing, as appropriate, but little time will be spent on them. (For example, the index of a family of Fredholm operators is a special case of the index of a Fredholm operator between Hilbert modules over a C*-algebra, but almost nothing will be said about this theory beyond several definitions and a pointer to further reading.)
