Induced C*-Complexes in Metaplectic Geometry

  • Svatopluk KrýslEmail author


For a symplectic manifold admitting a metaplectic structure and for a Kuiper map, we construct a complex of differential operators acting on exterior differential forms with values in the dual of Kostant’s symplectic spinor bundle. Defining a Hilbert C*-structure on this bundle for a suitable C*-algebra, we obtain an elliptic C*-complex in the sense of Mishchenko–Fomenko. Its cohomology groups appear to be finitely generated projective Hilbert C*-modules. The paper can serve as a guide for handling differential complexes and PDEs on Hilbert bundles.
