Harmonic Forms

We call a Riemannian space1 a differentiable manifold V endowed with a twice covariant tensor g ij such that the differential quadratic form
$$d{s^2} = \sum\limits_{i,j} {{g_{ij}}d{x^i}d{x^j}}$$
is always positive definite. In the following, we will always suppose that V is C and the given tensor g ij is C.
