Transgressions of the Euler class and Eisenstein cohomology of GLN(Z)


These notes were written to be distributed to the audience of the first author's Takagi lectures delivered June 23, 2018. These are based on a work-in-progress that is part of a collaborative project that also involves Akshay Venkatesh. In this work-in-progress we give a new construction of some Eisenstein classes for GL N (Z) that were first considered by Nori [41] and Sczech [44]. The starting point of this construction is a theorem of Sullivan on the vanishing of the Euler class of SL N (Z) vector bundles and the explicit transgression of this Euler class by Bismut and Cheeger. Their proof indeed produces a universal form that can be thought of as a kernel for a regularized theta lift for the reductive dual pair (GL N , GL 1). This suggests looking to reductive dual pairs (GL N , GL k) with k ≥ 1 for possible generalizations of the Eisenstein cocycle. This leads to fascinating lifts that relate the geometry/topology world of real arithmetic locally symmetric spaces to the arithmetic world of modular forms. In these notes we don't deal with the most general cases and put a lot of emphasis on various examples that are often classical.
