이 과제에서 본인은 Laplacian에 대한 zetadeterminant의 gluing formula에 대한 연구를 수행하였다. Gluing formula는 주어진 다양체를 두 조각으로 쪼갰을 때, 전체 다양체에서의 zetadeterminant와 쪼개진 각각의 부분에서의 zetadeterminant와의 차이를 쪼갠 면에서의 적당한 항목으로 표현하는 공식을 말한다. Compact 다양체 위에서의 Laplacian의 zetadeterminant에 대한 gluing formula는 90년대 초반에 Burghelea, Friedlander, Kappeler에 의해서 증명이 되었고 (BFKgluing formula), 다시 2000년대 초반에 Carron에 의해서 noncompact 다양체의 경우로 확장되었다. 그런데 이들 공식에는 알려지지 않은 상수를 하나 포함하고 있는데, 이 상수는 parameter dependent Dirichletto Neumann 작용소의 zetadeterminant에 대한 asymptotic expansion의 zerocoefficient로 표현이 될 뿐이다. 짝수 차원의 다양체에서는 이 상수가 0임이 알려져 있고, 주어진 다양체를 자르는 hypersurface 근방 (collar neighborhood)에서 product structure가 주어졌을 때에는 이 상수가 hypersurface에서의 Laplacian에 대한 zeta 함수의 0에서의 값과 같음이 알려져 있다. Hypersurface의 collar neighborhood에서 가장 간단한 metric이 product metric이라면 다음으로 간단한 metric은 warped product metric이다. 이 과제에서는 주어진 다양체의 hypersurface 근방에 warped product metric이 주어졌을 때, BFKgluing formula에 나타나는 상수에 대한 연구를 수행하였다. BFKgluing formula에서는 hypersurface에서의 error term을 기술하는데 DrichlettoNeumann 작용소를 사용한다. 이 과제에서는, 우선 hypersurface 근방에 warped product metric이 주어졌을 때 Laplacian에 대한 parameter dependent DrichlettoNeumann 작용소를 보다 유용한 형태로 기술하였다. 이를 이용하여 이 작용소에 대한 zetadeterminant의 asymptotic expansion을 고찰하였다. 그 결과로 연구 목표가 되는 상수에 대한 표현식을 얻었다. 그리고 특별히 주어진 다양체의 차원이 3과 5일 때에는 이 상수를 구체적으로 계산하였다. 마지막으로, BFKgluing formula는 relative zeta 함수의 0에서의 값에 대한 정보를 포함하고 있는데, 이 경우에 상응하는 0에서의 relative zeta 함수 값도 구하였다.

In this research subject, we study the gluing formula for the zetadeterminants of Laplacians. The gluing formula means the following. If we are given a complete Riemannian manifold, we cut this manifold along a hypersurface. Then the gluing formula for zetadeterminants of Laplacians describes the difference of the zetadeterminant on the whole manifold and the sum of the zetadeterminant in each part. The gluing formula for zetadeterminants of Laplacians was proved in the early 90's by Burghelea, Friedlander and Kappeler on a compact manifold with respect to the Dirichlet boundary condition. About 10 years later, Carron extended this result to the case of the relative zetadeterminant on a complete noncompact manifold. However, each of this formula contains an unknown constant which is expressed only by the zero coefficient in the asymptotic expansion of log of the zetadeterminants of a oneparameter family of DirichlettoNeumann operators. If the dimension of a manifold is even, this constant is known to be zero. Hence the research should be focused on an odd dimensional manifold. If a manifold has the product structure (the product metric and the corresponding Laplacian) near the cutting hypersurface, this constant is equal to the value of the zeta function at zero for the Laplacian on the cutting hypersurface. Certainly the simpliest metric on a collar neighborhood of a cutting hypersurface is the product metric and hence it is natural to discuss this constant when the warped product metric is given on the collar neighborhood of a cutting hypersurface, which is the main purpose of this research subject.
The DirichlettoNeumann operator plays a central role in the BFKgluing formula but this operator is not easy to describe and to control. When the warped product metric is given on a collar neighborhood of a cutting hypersurface, we first describe the oneparameter family of DirichlettoNeumann operators into a more useful form. Using this result, we investigate the asymptotic expansion of log of the zetadeterminants of the oneparameter family of DirichlettoNeumann operators, specially the zero coefficient of this asymptotic expansion. As a result we obtain a formal expression for this constant and compute this constant explicitly when the dimension of a manifold is 3 and 5.
On the other hand, the BFKgluing formula gives some informations about the values of relative zeta functions at zero. As a byproduct, we compute the values relative zeta functions at zero for Laplacians and give two applications for this result. We first compute the value of the zeta function at zero for a compatible Dirac Laplacian with the AtiyahPatodiSinger (APS)boundary condition on a compact manifold with boundary when the product metric is given near the boundary. Next, we compute the value of the relative zeta function at zero for a compatible Dirac Laplacian on a manifold with cylindrical end when the Dirichlet or the APS boundary condition is imposed on the bottom of the cylinder. At this point the scattering theory is involved.
Finally, by a simple observation, we show that the constant in the BFKgluing formula is determined completely by the data of a collar neighborhood of the cutting hypersurface and the Laplacian on this collar neighborhood.

The zetadeterminants or the relative zetadeterminants of Laplacians are global spectral invariants of elliptic operators on complete Riemannian manifolds. In case of global invariants, it is natural to discuss the gluing formula in the same line with the Seifert van Kampen Theorem or the MayerVietoris sequence. In case of the zetadeterminants of elliptic operators, the gluing formula was proved by Burghelea, Friedlander and Kappeler (BFKgluing formula) in 1992 on a compact manifold with respect to the Dirichlet boundary condition. In 2002, Carron extended this result to the case of a complete noncompact manifold. But their formulas contain unknown constants which are expressed only by the zero coefficients of some asymptotic expansions. If the dimension of a manifold is even, this constant is known to be zero. Hence the research should be focused on an odddimensional manifold. If a manifold has the product structure on a collar neighborhood of a cutting hypersurface, this constant was computed explicitly by Carron and the author. In this subject we discuss this constant when the warped product metric is given on a collar neighborhood of a cutting hypersurface.
The DirichlettoNeumann operator defined on the cutting hypersurface plays a central role in the BFKgluing formula. In fact, this constant is the constant term in the asymptotic expansion of log of zetadeterminants of a oneparameter family of the DirichlettoNeumann operators. But usually the DirichlettoNeumann operator is not easy to describe or to control. In this subject, when the warped product metric is given near the cutting hypersurface, we first describe the DirichlettoNeumann operator into a more useful form and discuss the asymptotic expansion of log of zetadeterminants with focusing on the constant term. As a result, we obtain a formal expression for this constant in terms of the short time asymptotics of the heat kernel of the DirichlettoNeumann operator. Moreover, we compute this constant explicitly when the dimension of a manifold is 3 and 5. As a simple observation, we show that this constant is determined by the data of the manifold and the Laplacian on a collar neighborhood of the cutting hypersurface, not by the data of the cutting hypersurface itself and the Laplacian restricted on the cutting hypersurface.
On the other hand, the BFKgluing formula contains some informations about the values of relative zeta functions at zero. As a byproduct we compute the values of relative zeta functions at zero when the warped product metric is given on a collar neighborhood of a cutting hypersurface. We give two applications for this result. Using this result, we first compute the values of zeta functions at zero for Dirac Laplacians with the AtiyahPatodiSinger (APS) boundary condition on a compact manifold with boundary when the product metric is given neat the boundary. Next, we compute the values of the relative zeta functions for Laplacians at zero on a manifold with cylindrical ends when the Dirichlet or the APS boundary condition is imposed on the bottom of the cylinder. At this point, the scattering theory is involved.

To complete the BFKgluing formula for the (relative) zetadeterminants of Laplacians we need to understand this constant explicitly. What is known until now is the following. If the dimension of a manifold is even, this constant is zero. If a manifold has the product structure (the product metric and the corresponding Laplacian), this constant is equal to the value of the zeta function at zero for the Laplacian restricted to the cutting hypersurface. In these two cases, this constant is determined completely by the data of the cutting hypersurface. In this subject, by considering more complicate case (the case of warped product metric), we show that this constant is not determined only by the data of the cutting hypersurface itself. We show how this constant depends on the data of a collar neighborhood of the cutting hypersurface.
