Heat kernels on metric graphs and a trace formula
Seminar Room 1, Newton Institute
We report on joint work with V. Kostrykin and J. Potthoff. On metric graphs and for a certain class of Laplace operators a representation for the heat kernel in terms of walks is given. This representation is obtained from a corresponding one for the resolvent derived previously by two of the authors. This results in a Selberg-Gutzwiller type formula for the trace and extends earlier results by other authors in the context of quantum graphs.
If it doesn't, something may have gone wrong with our embedded player.
We'll get it fixed as soon as possible.
