On the relationship of gerbes to the odd families index theorem

Carey, Alan; Wang, Bai-Ling


The goal of this paper is to apply the universal gerbe of [A. Carey, J. Mickelsson, A gerbe obstruction to quantization of fermions on odd dimensional manifolds, Lett. Math. Phys. 51 (2000) 145-160] and [A.L. Carey, J. Mickelsson, The universal gerbe, Dixmier-Douady classes and gauge theory, Lett. Math. Phys. 59 (2002) 47-60] to give an alternative, simple and more unified view of the relationship between index theory and gerbes. We discuss determinant bundle gerbes [A. Carey, J. Mickelsson, M....[Show more]
