Hodge Numbers

Friday, September 12, 2014, 2:30pm
Ungar Building Room 402


Abstract: 

The Hodge numbers of a compact complex manifold are analytic invariants similar to the topologically invariant Betti numbers of a compact differentiable manifold. The Hodge numbers can be arranged into Hodge "Hodge Diamond" for the manifold and we will look at some of its symmetries. Furthermore, if the manifold is Kahler, we will see that these numbers can be viewed as a refinement of the Betti numbers of the underlying differentiable manifold.
