Cones, Spins and Heat Kernels


The heat kernels of Laplacians for spin 1/2, 1, 3/2 and 2 fields, and the asymptotic expansion of their traces are studied on manifolds with conical singularities. The exact mode-by-mode analysis is carried out for 2-dimensional domains and then extended to arbitrary dimensions. The corrections to the first Schwinger-DeWitt coefficients in the trace… (More)
