"Clifford Algebras and Dirac Operators"

This is the first talk in the index theory learning seminar, and will follow the first part of Chapter 3 of John Roe's "Elliptic operators, topology, and asymptotic methods". In this talk we examine the basic theory of Clifford algebras and their use in defining the Dirac operator of a Clifford bundle over a Riemannian manifold. The goal is to derive the Weitzenbock formula, relating Dirac operators to the Laplace operator and curvature of the manifold.
