Abstract: Localization can be broadly described as a phenomenon where certain integrands turn out to only be supported near special points. The classic result of this form is stationary phase. I will talk about different instances of localization and the analysis involved. I'll begin with stationary phase and move onto Atiyah Bott localization, the Duistermaat-Heckman theorem, and Witten deformation. For more on Witten deformation, check out the Graduate Geometry and Topology Seminar this week.
