Title: On the Gauss-Bonnet Theorem
Speaker: M. S. Raghunathan (CBS, Mumbai)
Date: 28 June 2018
Time: 3 pm
Venue: LH-1, Mathematics Department
In this talk I will outline a proof of the classical Gauss-Bonnet theorem. The proof uses Chern-Weil theory (which is standard) but more interestingly, Morse theory. The proof has appeared in a recent paper of mine in the Journal of Pure and Applied Mathematics of INSA.
