This special issue complements the conference Global Analysis on Manifolds in honor of Professor Christian Bär in Freiburg Germany, 19–23 September 2022.

We welcome contributions related to Christian Bär's research expertise. Topics include:

  • Dirac operators and index theory;
  • positive scalar curvature;
  • Lorentzian geometry, inclunding wave equations and quantum field theory;
  • pseudo-differential operators and microlocal analysis.

The participants of the conference, and other researchers whose work is directly concerned with the above topics, are invited to submit papers to the special issue. We want to emphasise that all papers in this special issue should be original, although exceptional survey papers will be considered.

There is no limit to the length of an article. Deadline for paper submission is April 30, 2023.

How to Submit an Article to the Issue.

All articles will go through the standard peer reviewing procedure of SIGMA.

If you have your paper ready earlier than the deadline, we encourage you to send it now. The reviewing process starts once the paper is submitted and we will publish the paper as soon as the positive publication decision is made. The paper will be indexed in the relevant databases as soon as it is published without waiting for completion of the special issue.
