# Quillen determinant line bundle

## From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

In mathematics, the **Quillen determinant line bundle** is a line bundle over the space of Cauchy–Riemann operators of a vector bundle over a Riemann surface, introduced by Quillen (1985). Quillen proved the existence of the Quillen metric on the determinant line bundle, a Hermitian metric defined using the analytic torsion of a family of differential operators.
