TITLE Hodge elliptic genera I
ABSTRACT The complex elliptic genus is an example of a geometric invariant that was developed in the late 80s in a concerted effort between mathematics and physics. Mathematically, for Calabi-Yau manifolds M, it defines a genus with values in the ring of weak Jacobi forms of weight zero. In physics, it is interpreted as a specialization of the partition function of superconformal field theories on M. Its form may be motivated by an attempt to define a regularization of a would-be U(1)-equivariant index of a Dirac operator on the loop space of M. In this lecture series, we will review the complex elliptic genus, and we will explain how recent investigations have led to a refinement of this invariant for K3 surfaces and beyond.
