The Eta invariant on the Milnor fibration of a quasihomogeneous polynomialJan 07 2011Aug 15 2012We calculate the eta-invariant for the odd signature operator relative to a specific submersion metric on the Milnor fibration of a quasihomogeneous hypersurface singularity using certain global boundary conditions in terms of the data of its fibre intersection ...

Spectral data for simply-periodic solutions of the sinh-Gordon equationJan 11 2017This note summarizes results that were obtained by the author in his habilitation thesis (arXiv:1607.08792) concerning the development of a spectral theory for simply periodic, 2-dimensional, complex-valued solutions of the sinh-Gordon equation. Spectral ... More

Relative tensor triangular Chow groups, singular varieties and localizationOct 01 2015We extend the scope of Balmer's tensor triangular Chow groups to compactly generated triangulated categories $\mathcal{K}$ that only admit an action by a compactly-rigidly generated tensor triangulated category $\mathcal{T}$ as opposed to having a compatible ...

Intersection products for tensor triangular Chow groupsMay 28 2015We show that under favorable circumstances, one can construct an intersection product on the Chow groups of a tensor triangulated category $\mathcal{T}$ (as defined by Balmer) which generalizes the usual intersection product on a non-singular algebraic ...
