On Harmonic Differential Forms in a General Manifold

  • Nirmala Prakash


During the past fifteen years the theory of form-calculus has been mainly responsible for the development of differential geometry. The roots of the subject are to be found in E. Cartan’s famous paper of 1934 on Finster spaces, and later on the subject flourished at the hands of S. Chern, J. A. Schouten, K. Kodiara, S. Bochner, A. Hilt, S. Hseiung, and several others.
