Dmitri Vassilevich: Spectral triples and heat kernel expansion
Main notions of noncommutative geometry: noncommutative topology and the Gelfand-Naimark Theorem, spectral triples and Dirac operators, noncommutative distance, spectral action.
Spectral geometry: differential and pseudodifferential operators, spectrum, spectral functions, heat kernel, asymptotic expansions.
Examples and applications: spectral asymptotics on some noncommutative spaces, applications to the Standard Model, high and low-energy behavior of the spectral action.
