Generalizing the Gauss-Bonnet Theorem to the foliation setting
Ken Richardson
Texas Christian University, United States of America
Özet : The Gauss-Bonnet Theorem relates curvature to the Euler characteristic of a closed manifold or manifold with boundary. We will define and give examples of Riemannian foliations, for which an additional invariant, the "basic Euler characteristic", exists. We give a new formula for this basic Euler characteristic.
