The Atiyah-Bott-Berline-Vergne-Witten localization formula says $S^1$ acting on compact manifold $M$ isolated fixing points. And for a closed equivariant form $\omega$, then $$(2\pi)^{-\frac{\dim(M)}{2}}\int_M\omega=\sum_{p\in isolated~ point}\frac{\omega^0(p)}{\det^{1/2}(L_p)},$$ where $L_p$ denotes the induced action on $TM$.


  • If the isolated-point set is a high dimensional submanifold, are there some results about the Berline-Vergne?

  • In the research of the localization of equivariant differential forms, are there some open problems?

  • $\begingroup$ Yes. In the Duistermaat and Heckman's second paper, they generalized the DH-localization formula to the high dimensional case. This could answer the second question. $\endgroup$ – DLIN Jan 28 '17 at 5:18
