# Hirzebruch signature theorem

Hirzebruch signature theorem In differential topology, an area of mathematics, the Hirzebruch signature theorem[1] (sometimes called the Hirzebruch index theorem) is Friedrich Hirzebruch's 1954 result expressing the signature of a smooth closed oriented manifold by a linear combination of Pontryagin numbers called the L-genus. It was used in the proof of the Hirzebruch–Riemann–Roch theorem.

Hirzebruch showed that the n-th L-class of M evaluated on the fundamental class of M, {style d'affichage [M]} , est égal à {style d'affichage sigma (M)} , the signature of M (c'est à dire. the signature of the intersection form on the 2nth cohomology group of M): {style d'affichage sigma (M)=langle L_{n}(p_{1}(M),des points ,p_{n}(M)),[M]hochet .} Sketch of proof of the signature theorem René Thom had earlier proved that the signature was given by some linear combination of Pontryagin numbers, and Hirzebruch found the exact formula for this linear combination by introducing the notion of the genus of a multiplicative sequence.

Since the rational oriented cobordism ring {style d'affichage Omega _{*}^{texte{SO}}otimes mathbb {Q} } est égal à {style d'affichage Omega _{*}^{texte{SO}}otimes mathbb {Q} =mathbb {Q} [mathbb {P} ^{2}(mathbb {C} ),mathbb {P} ^{4}(mathbb {C} ),ldots ],} the polynomial algebra generated by the oriented cobordism classes {style d'affichage [mathbb {P} ^{2je}(mathbb {C} )]} of the even dimensional complex projective spaces, it is enough to verify that {style d'affichage sigma (mathbb {P} ^{2je})=1=langle L_{je}(p_{1}(mathbb {P} ^{2je}),ldots ,p_{n}(mathbb {P} ^{2je})),[mathbb {P} ^{2je}]hochet } pour tout je.

Generalizations The signature theorem is a special case of the Atiyah–Singer index theorem for the signature operator. The analytic index of the signature operator equals the signature of the manifold, and its topological index is the L-genus of the manifold. By the Atiyah–Singer index theorem these are equal.
