MATH Seminar: “Equivariant Cohomology and Localization after Anton Alekseev,” Yıldıray Ozan (METU), SA-141, 3:40PM March 29 (EN)

Dear Colleagues and Students,

You are cordially invited to the ODTU-Bilkent Algebraic Geometry Seminar
Speaker: Yıldıray Ozan (ODTU)

“Equivariant Cohomology and Localization after Anton Alekseev”

Abstract: We will try to present the notes by Anton Alekseev on Equivariant Localization, mainly focusing on $S^1$-actions. First, we will introduce Stationary Phase Method. Then we will define equivariant $S^1$-cohomology and present a proof of the localization theorem suggested by E. Witten. If time permits, finally we will end by the Duistermaat-Heckman formula and its proof.
