Analytic torsion and interactions

2–6 September 2024, Münster, Germany

Analytic torsion in its many facets is an important secondary spectral invariant studied in global analysis. The aim of this conference is to present a panorama of recent developments and interactions with other fields, that the study of analytic torsion has seen in the last years.
