Abstract:  In this thesis, we study two problems by using physical models with supersymmetry and their path integral. Since this thesis deals with these topics from a common perspective, but in different ways, we have divided this thesis into two parts. One is deriving fixedpoint theorem using path integral [25]. The other is the Euler number and MathaiQuillen formalism in the Grassmann manifold [20]. This thesis is based on [20], [25] and [28].
In the part I, we derive the Bott residue formula by using the topological sigma model (Amodel) that describes dynamics of maps from CP1 to a Kähler manifold M, with potential terms induced from a holomorphic vector field K on M [25]. The Bott residue formula represents the intersection number of Chern classes of holomorphic vector bundles on M as the sum of contributions from fixed point sets of K on M. Our strategy is to represent the integral of differential form on M by a correlation function and show that the correlation function is obtained by collecting contributions from the zero set of K. It is realized by showing the invariance of correlation function for the parameter of potential terms. As an effect of adding a potential term to the topological sigma model, we are forced to modify the BRST symmetry of the original topological sigma model.
In the part II, we provide a recipe for computing Euler number of Grassmann manifold G(k;N) by using MathaiQuillen formalism [33] and AtiyahJeffrey construction [3]. Especially, we construct the path integral representation of Euler number of G(k;N) [20]. As a byproduct, we construct free fermion realization of cohomology ring of G(k;N). It means that the cohomology ring of G(k;N) can be represented by fermionic fields that appear in our model. As an application, we calculate some integrals of cohomology classes by using fermion integrals [28].
