We consider the space of odd spinors on the circle, and a decomposition into spinors supported on either the top or on the bottom half of the circle. If an operator preserves this decomposition, and acts on the bottom half in the same way as a second operator acts on the top half, then the fusion of both operators is a third operator acting on the top half like the first, and on the bottom half like the second. Fusion restricts to the Banach Lie group of restricted orthogonal operators, which… Expand
Connes fusion of spinors on loop space
The loop space of a string manifold supports an infinite-dimensional Fock space bundle, which is an analog of the spinor bundle on a spin manifold. This spinor bundle on loop space appears in theExpand
The Spinor Bundle on Loop Space and its Fusion product
Given a manifold with a string structure, we construct a spinor bundle on its loop space. Our construction is in analogy with the usual construction of a spinor bundle on a spin manifold, butExpand
Smooth Fock bundles, and spinor bundles on loop space
We address the construction of smooth bundles of fermionic Fock spaces, a problem that appears frequently in fermionic gauge theories. Our main motivation is the spinor bundle on the free loop spaceExpand


Spin structures on loop spaces that characterize string manifolds
Classically, a spin structure on the loop space of a manifold is a lift of the structure group of the looped frame bundle from the loop group to its universal central extension. Heuristically, theExpand
Lifting Problems and Transgression for Non-Abelian Gerbes
We discuss various lifting and reduction problems for bundles and gerbes in the context of a strict Lie 2-group. We obtain a geometrical formulation (and a new proof) for the exactness of Breen'sExpand
Twistor spaces and spinors over loop spaces
In this paper two natural twistor spaces over the loop space of a Riemannian manifold are constructed and their equivalence is shown in the Kählerian case. This relies on a detailed study of frameExpand
Models in Boundary Quantum Field Theory Associated with Lattices and Loop Group Models
In this article we give new examples of models in boundary quantum field theory, i.e. local time-translation covariant nets of von Neumann algebras, using a recent construction of Longo and Witten,Expand
String geometry vs. spin geometry on loop spaces
Abstract We introduce various versions of spin structures on free loop spaces of smooth manifolds, based on a classical notion due to Killingback, and additionally coupled to two relations betweenExpand
Notes on Defects & String Groups
We show that the 2-group model for the string group in the paper [DH12] of Christopher Douglas and André Henriques is isomorphic to the Stolz-Teichner model described in [ST04]. Beware! This is aExpand
On the de Rham theory of certain classifying spaces
In this thesis, H. Shulman proved the vanishing phenomena for characteristic classes of foliations without the usual geometric constructions of connections, curvature, etc. In this note, we present aExpand
Bundle Gerbes for Chern-Simons and Wess-Zumino-Witten Theories
We develop the theory of Chern-Simons bundle 2-gerbes and multiplicative bundle gerbes associated to any principal G-bundle with connection and a class in H4(BG, ℤ) for a compact semi-simple LieExpand
Towards a Lie theory of locally convex groups
Abstract.In this survey, we report on the state of the art of some of the fundamental problems in the Lie theory of Lie groups modeled on locally convex spaces, such as integrability of Lie algebras,Expand
Loop Spaces, Characteristic Classes and Geometric Quantization
This book deals with the differential geometry of manifolds, loop spaces, line bundles and groupoids, and the relations of this geometry to mathematical physics. Recent developments in mathematicalExpand
