This e-book isn't really a textbook, yet relatively a coherent selection of papers from the sector of partial differential equations. however we think that it may possibly rather well function an excellent advent into a few themes of this classical box of study which, regardless of of its lengthy background, is very modem and good prospering. Richard Courant wrote in 1950: "It has constantly been a temptationfor mathematicians to offer the crystallized manufactured from their notion as a deductive basic conception and to relegate the person mathematical phenomenon into the function of an instance. The reader who submits to the dogmatic shape may be simply indoctrinated. Enlightenment, despite the fact that, needs to come from an knowing of factors; stay mathematical improvement springs from particular normal difficulties which might be simply understood, yet whose strategies are tricky and insist new tools or extra normal value. " we predict that many, if no longer all, papers of this ebook are written during this spirit and may provide the reader entry to a massive department of research by way of displaying curiosity­ ing difficulties worthy to be studied. many of the gathered articles have an intensive introductory half describing the historical past of the offered difficulties in addition to the state-of-the-art and provide a good selected advisor to the literature. this fashion the papers grew to become lengthier than regularly occurring nowadays, however the point of presentation is such that a sophisticated graduate scholar should still locate a few of the articles either readable and stimulating.

For the convenience of the reader and since we will need the arguments again we briefly sketch the proof. We define the B-functions B±(t) := e-~t . F±(e- t ) = e-(m+~)t "" X=f(c(g)) - e- t . x±(c(g)). IGI ~ det(12rn - e-t . g) (11) Since G acts freely the non-trivial elements g E G do not have 1 as an eigenvalue and thus det(1 2rn - g) =1= O. Therefore only the summand for g = 12m contributes to the pole of B± at t = O. Hence for B := B+ - B_ the poles at t = 0 cancel, B is holomorphic at t = 0 with B(O) = L ~ I I gEG-{12Tn} (x- - X+)(c(g)) det(12rn - g) .

T. 2 and (21). 13 Let us look at real projective space M = lRJlD 2 m-1. In this case G = {12m, -1 2m }. We assume m to be odd so that M is spin and has two spin structures. They are given by s( -1 2m ) = ±w where w = el ... e2m is the volume element considered as an element in Spin(2m) C Cl(lR2m). The volume element acts by multiplication by ±1 on the two half spinor spaces so that X+(w) = -X- (w). Hence for both spin structures we have X( s( -1 2m )) = O.

This finishes the proof of the lemma. 6 The Essential Spectrum Now we are going to use our estimates to characterize the essential spectrum of the Dirac operator under study. We first remark that the essential spectrum "lives at infinity" - as one should expect - hence is determined by the end structure. Next we exploit the a priori estimates to show that the exploding spectral subspaces on the cross section (the circle) do not contribute to the essential spectrum; hence we are left with an ordinary differential operator.
