Didactics of Mathematics as a Scientific Discipline

This booklet describes the cutting-edge in a brand new department of technological know-how. the elemental notion was once to begin from a common point of view on didactics of arithmetic, to spot sure subdisciplines, and to indicate an total constitution or "topology" of the sector of analysis of didactics of arithmetic. the amount offers a pattern of 30 unique contributions from 10 assorted nations.

Example text

For example when j = 1 then c1 (F ⊗ G) = rc1 (G) + sc1 (F ). To see this we apply the splitting principle and find a space Y and a map φ : Y → X such that the map H ∗ (X, Z) → H ∗ (Y, Z) is injective and both φ∗ (F ) and φ∗ (G) split into sums of line bundles: φ∗ (F ) = L1 ⊕ · · · ⊕ Lr , φ∗ (G) = L1 ⊕ · · · ⊕ Ls . , c1 (Ls )) , and φ∗ (F ⊗ G) = ⊕k,l Lk ⊗ Ll . So we obtain φ∗ cj (F ⊗ G) = σj (c1 (Lk ) + c1 (Ll ) - the polynomial in rs variables. It is well-known that σj (c1 (Lk ) + c1 (Ll )) can be expressed in terms of σi (c1 (Lk )) and σi (c1 (Ll )) .

Now we notice that when the curvature R vanishes then ∇ ∇ ∇ · · · → Γ(∧p T ∗ X ⊗ E) → Γ(∧p+1 T ∗ X ⊗ E) → · · · is a complex. Now we want to get ordinary differential forms from an End(E)valued 2 - form R. We pick a polynomial function P : Mr (C) → C 60 CHAPTER 2. COHOMOLOGY OF VECTOR BUNDLES which is homogeneous of degree j and conjugation invariant: P (B −1 CB) = P (C). When we apply P to R ∈ Γ(∧2 T ∗ X ⊗End(E)) we get a complex valued 2j-form P (R). , λr ) is the set of eigenvalues of A. This is exactly the coefficient of tj in the characteristic polynomial det(I + tA), where I is the identity matrix.

Then we get a connection ∇E + ∇F on the direct sum E ⊕ F such that the corresponding curvature matrix of 2-forms is given by R∇E +∇F = R∇E 0 0 R∇F . It is a simple fact which follows from the identity det(I + t A 0 )= 0 B det(I + tA) det(I + tB) that Pj A 0 0 B j Pk (A)Pj−k (B). = k=0 This implies that Ωj (E + F ) = jk=0 Ωk (E) ∧ Ωj−k (F ). √ (4) For a line bundle L we know that if Ω1 = (−2π −1)−1 R then its cohomology class [Ω1 ] = c1 (L) ∈ H 2 (X, C). Now to see that for each j one has [Ωj ] = cj (E) one can easily see that the classes [Ωj ] are compatible with pull-backs and then use splitting principle or the uniqueness theorem for the Chern classes.
