A natural differential operator on conic spaces
Daniel Grieser
We introduce the notion of a conic space, as a natural structure on a manifold with boundary, and de ne a natural fi rst order di fferential operator, $c_d_\partial$, acting on boundary values of conic one-forms. Conic structures arise, for example, from resolutions of manifolds with conic singularities, embedded in a smooth ambient space. We show that pull-backs of smooth ambient one-forms to the resolution are cd@-closed, and that this is the only local condition on oneforms that is invariantly de ned on conic spaces. The operator $c_d_\partial$ extends to conic Riemannian metrics, and $c_d_\partial$-closed conic metrics have important geometric properties like the existence of an exponential map at the boundary.
