GASC Seminar "More About the Supersymmetric Residue Theorem" by Chris Beasley (Northeastern)
Abstract: The Euler class of a real vector bundle V over a smooth manifold M can famously be described by a finite-dimensional supersymmetric integral, which provides a toy model for cohomological field theory.
I will discuss an analogous result when M is a complex manifold and V is a holomorphic vector bundle. In the complex case, one obtains a family of multidimensional residue theorems. As time permits, I will sketch applications to supersymmetric gauge theory and string theory.
