This is often the court cases of a world workshop on knot thought held in July 1996 at Waseda college convention Centre. It used to be geared up by way of the foreign learn Institute of Mathematical Society of Japan. The workshop used to be attended via approximately one hundred eighty mathematicians from Japan and 14 different international locations.

The most obvious kind of example is a quotient of a manifold by a locally linear action of a ﬁnite group. But not every orbifold, not even every compact smooth orbifold, is a quotient of a manifold by a ﬁnite group action. (The simplest counterexample or “bad orbifold” is the “teardrop” X, shown in Figure 3. Here the bottom half of the space is a hemisphere, and the top half is the quotient of a hemisphere by a cyclic group acting by rotations around the pole. ) Figure 3. The teardrop On a smooth orbifold X, we have a notion of Riemannian metric, which on a patch looking like Rn /G, G ﬁnite, is simply a Riemannian metric on Rn invariant under the action of G.

As we remarked earlier, the bundle VM has a natural ﬂat connection. If we use this connection to deﬁne DV , then Lichnerowicz’s identity (2) will still hold with DV in place of D, since there is no contribution from the curvature of the bundle. Thus κ > 0 implies Ind DV = A(u∗ ([D])) = 0. Thus if A is injective, we can conclude that u∗ ([D]) = 0 in KOn (Bπ). 7. See  for details. 9 (Gromov-Lawson). A closed aspherical manifold cannot admit a metric of positive scalar curvature. 9, at least for spin manifolds.
