Spin Structures on Hypersurfaces and the Spectrum of the Dirac Operator on Spheres
Recent results on pin structures on hypersurfaces in spin manifolds are reviewed. A new form of the Dirac operator is used to compute its spectrum on n-dimensional spheres. This constrbution is based on two papers by the author, where details and proofs can be found (Ref.4 and 5).
