The Chiral Anomaly

  • Jouko Mickelsson
Part of the Plenum Monographs in Nonlinear Physics book series (PMNP)


The Dirac operator on a manifold M is a first order partial differential operator acting on sections of a spin bundle over M. The Dirac operator is elliptic when the metric of M is positive definite. The main task in this chapter is to study properties of the determinant of the Dirac operator.
