Clifford Modules

Part of the Progress in Nonlinear Differential Equations and their Applications book series (PNLDE, volume 18)


Here the Kahler form a, cf. (2.24), is viewed as a (1, I)-form. Moreover, the integrand in 0.3) is equal to a universal constant times the Laplacian applied to (3.l), plus terms involving at most second order derivatives of the metric. This follows from the formulas for E2 and E4 of Gilkey [30, p. 610], using that, in the computation of the supertrace, the linear contributions of the scalar curvature drop out. So the integrand in (1.3) involves fourth order derivatives of a.
