The theory of harmonic integrals was created by Hodge [15], and the theorem which bears his name is the central result of the subject. Kodaira [17] and-independently-de Rham and Bidal [1] used the generalized harmonic operator A in their treatments of the theory. A was also used by Milgram and Rosenbloom [19] in their study of harmonic integrals with the heat equation. It is our purpose to develop the properties of A from the point of view of Hilbert space theory, thus arriving at Hodge's…

Propagation of Singularities for the Cauchy-Riemann Equations
These lectures are intended as an introduction to the study of several complex variables from the point of view of partial differential equations. More specifically here we take the approach of the
Analysis of the Laplacian of an incomplete manifold with almost polar boundary
Motivated by recent interest in global analysis of singular manifolds, we establish the essential self-adjointness of a Laplacian, a Liouville property of subharmonic functions, conservativeness and
Scattering theory of the $p$-form Laplacian on manifolds with generalized cusps
In this paper we consider scattering theory on manifolds with special cusp-like metric singularities of warped product type g=dx^2 + x^(-2a)h, where a>0. These metrics form a natural subset in the
The spectrum of Schr\"odinger operators and Hodge Laplacians on conformally cusp manifolds
We describe the spectrum of the $k$-form Laplacian on conformally cusp Riemannian manifolds. The essential spectrum is shown to vanish precisely when the $k$ and $k-1$ de Rham cohomology groups of
An isomorphism from intersection homology to L p -cohomology
Pseudomanifolds with a metric on the nonsingular part are considered. Let^? be the largest perversity strictly smaller then ~. Under the assumption of concordance of a metric with the conelike
Introduction to Algebraic and Constructive Quantum Field Theory
The authors present a rigorous treatment of the first principles of the algebraic and analytic core of quantum field theory. Their aim is to correlate modern mathematical theory with the explanation
The Witten Laplacian on Negatively Curved Simply Connected Manifolds
The Hopf conjecture states that the Euler characteristic of a compact Riemannian $2n$-manifold $\overline{M}$ of negative sectional curvature satisfies $(-1)^{n}\chi(\overline{M})>0[6]$ . Applying

On Hodge's Theory of Harmonic Integrals
The attempt which WV. V. D. Hodge made in Chapter III of his beautiful book' to establish the existence of harmonic integrals with preassigned periods has not been entirely successful because the
Theory of Lie Groups
This famous book was the first treatise on Lie groups in which a modern point of view was adopted systematically, namely, that a continuous group can be regarded as a global object. To develop this
