Progress in Mathematics #305: Hypoelliptic Laplacian and Bott Chern Cohomology: A Theorem of Riemann Roch Grothendieck in Complex Geometryby Jean-michel Bismut
Synopses & Reviews
The book provides the proof of a complex geometric version of a well-known result in algebraic geometry: the theorem of Riemann-Roch-Grothendieck for proper submersions. It gives an equality of cohomology classes in Bott-Chern cohomology, which is a refinement for complex manifolds of de Rham cohomology. When the manifolds are Kähler, our main result is known. A proof can be given using the elliptic Hodge theory of the fibres, its deformation via Quillen's superconnections, and a version in families of the 'fantastic cancellations' of McKean-Singer in local index theory. In the general case, this approach breaks down, because the cancellations do not occur any more.
