Title: Polyhomogeneous expansions and Z/2-harmonic spinors branching along graphs

Abstract: In this talk, we will first reformulate the linearization of the moduli space of Z/2-harmonic spinorsv branching along a knot. This formula tells us that the kernel and cokernel of the linearization are isomorphic to the kernel and cokernel of the Dirac equation with a polyhomogeneous boundary condition. In the second part of this talk, I will describe the polyhomogenous expansions for the Z/2-harmonic spinors branching along graphs and formulate the Dirac equation with a suitable boundary condition that can describe the perturbation of graphs with some restrictions. This is joint work with Andriy Haydys and Rafe Mazzeo.
