In this paper, we provide the notions of connection $1$-forms and curvature $2$-forms on graphs. We prove a Weitzenb\"ock formula for connection Laplacians in this setting. We also define a discrete Yang-Mills functional and study its Euler-Lagrange equations.

Hodge Laplacians on graphs

This is an elementary introduction to the Hodge Laplacian on a graph, a higher-order generalization of the graph LaPLacian, requiring only knowledge of linear algebra and graph theory.

Stability and isolation phenomena for Yang-Mills fields

In this article a series of results concerning Yang-Mills fields over the euclidean sphere and other locally homogeneous spaces are proved using differential geometric methods. One of our main

Supersymmetry and Morse theory

It is shown that the Morse inequalities can be obtained by consideration of a certain supersymmetric quantum mechanics Hamiltonian. Some of the implications of modern ideas in mathematics for

Spanning forests and the vector bundle Laplacian

The classical matrix-tree theorem relates the determinant of the combinatorial Laplacian on a graph to the number of spanning trees. We generalize this result to Laplacians on one- and

A combinatorial analogue of Bochner's theorems is derived, which demonstrates that there are topological restrictions to a space having a cell decomposition with everywhere positive curvature.
