The Chern–Gauss–Bonnet Theorem via Supersymmetric Euclidean Field Theories

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

We prove the Chern–Gauss–Bonnet Theorem using sigma models whose source supermanifolds have super dimension 0|2. Along the way we develop machinery for understanding manifold invariants encoded by families of 0|δ-dimensional Euclidean field theories and their quantization.
