Spin geometry and Index Theorem

The talks will include the topic on Clifford algebra, Spin group and their representation; K, KO theory; characteristic class, spin structure, spin connection, Dirac operator; (pseudo)differential operator, Multiplicative sequence, Chern character, Atiyah-Singer Index theorem.

Gauge Theory

In this course we will give an introduction to gauge theory on smooth 4-manifolds and to its applications in differential topology and algebraic geometry. The following themes are supposed to be covered:
