Orbifolds: a Bridge between Geometry, Algebra and Analysis.

Abstract: In this talk I will survey some results on
actions of compact Lie groups on manifolds, as related to the structure of their
associated quotient spaces. In particular, I will focus on
orbifolds and their invariants (such as the Euler and Euler--Satake characteristics).
Orbifolds indeed provide an interesting class of generalized manifolds closely
linked to actions of finite groups, for which many invariants can be
explicitly calculated.
