Abstract:We consider the following construction of quantization. For a Riemannian manifold $M$ the space of forms on T⋆M is made into a space of (full) symbols of operators acting on forms on M. This gives rise to the composition of symbols, which is a deformation of the (“super”)commutative multiplication of forms. The symbol calculus is exact for differential operators and the symbols that are polynomial in momenta. We calculate the symbols of natural Laplacians. (Some nice Weitzenböck like… 
The deformation quantization of certain super-Poisson brackets and BRST cohomology
On every split supermanifold equipped with the Rothstein super-Poisson bracket we construct a deformation quantization by means of a Fedosov-type procedure. In other words, the supercommutative
On the Geometry of Forms on Supermanifolds
This paper provides a rigorous account on the geometry of forms on supermanifolds, with a focus on its algebraic-geometric aspects. First, we introduce the de Rham complex of differential forms and
Spectral action in noncommutative geometry and global pseudodifferential calculus
In this thesis, we studied certain mathematical issues related to the computation of the Chamseddine--Connes spectral action on some fundamental noncommutative spectral triples, such as the
Pseudodifferential operators on manifolds with linearization.
We present in this paper the construction of a pseudodifferential calculus on smooth non-compact manifolds associated to a globally defined and coordinate independant complete symbol calculus, that
Proof of the Atiyah–Singer index theorem by canonical quantum mechanics
We show that the Atiyah–Singer index theorem of Dirac operator can be directly proved in the canonical formulation of quantum mechanics, without using the path-integral technique. This proof takes
Non-Commutative Batalin-Vilkovisky Algebras, Homotopy Lie Algebras and the Courant Bracket
We consider two different constructions of higher brackets. First, based on a Grassmann-odd, nilpotent Δ operator, we define a non-commutative generalization of the higher Koszul brackets, which are
Groups and Analysis: From Weyl quantization to modern algebraic index theory
One of the most influencial contributions of Hermann Weyl to mathematical physics has been his paper Gruppentheorie und Quantenmechanik [We27] from 1927 and its extended version, the book [We28]
Integral representations on supermanifolds: super Hodge duals, PCOs and Liouville forms
We present a few types of integral transforms and integral representations that are very useful for extending to supergeometry many familiar concepts of differential geometry. Among them we discuss
Pseudodifferential Operators on Manifolds: A Coordinate-free Approach
The main aim of the paper is to demonstrate the advantage of a coordinate-free approach to the theory of pseudodifferential operators. We explain how one can define symbols and construct a symbolic


The normal symbol on Riemannian manifolds
For an arbitrary Riemannian manifold X and Hermitian vector bundles E and F over X we dene the notion of the normal symbol of a pseu- dodierential operator P from E to F. The normal symbol of P is a
The Laplacian on a Riemannian Manifold: The Laplacian on a Riemannian Manifold
In this chapter we will generalize the Laplacian on Euclidean space to an operator on differential forms on a Riemannian manifold. By a Riemannian manifold, we roughly mean a manifold equipped with a
Homogeneous Fedosov Star Products on Cotangent Bundles I: Weyl and Standard Ordering with Differential Operator Representation
Abstract:In this paper we construct homogeneous star products of Weyl type on every cotangent bundle T*Q by means of the Fedosov procedure using a symplectic torsion-free connection on T*Q
An explicit *-product on the cotangent bundle of a Lie group
We give explicit formulas for a *-product on the cotangent bundle T*G of a Lie group G; these formulas involve on the one hand the multiplicative structure of the universal enveloping algebra U(G) of

An analytic proof of the Atiyah-Singer index, theorem is given with the help of the tools of supermathematics. The index formula for the Dirac operator on a spinor manifold is obtained here by direct

Pseudodifferential Operators and Linear Connections
The aim of the paper is to construct a calculus of pseudodifferential operators (PDOs) on a smooth manifold M without using local coordinate systems. Instead we deal with linear connections Γ of M.
Supersymmetry and the Atiyah-Singer index theorem
Using a recently introduced index for supersymmetric theories, we present a simple derivation of the Atiyah-Singer index theorem for classical complexes and itsG-index generalization using elementary
