HodgeIntegrals :: lambda

lambda -- Chern class of the Hodge bundle

Synopsis

Description

This is an element in the ring created by hodgeRing. It is the $a$-th Chern class of the Hodge bundle on ${\bar M}_{g,n}$.,

Here is a simple example which calculates $\int_{{\bar M}_{1,1}} \lambda_1$.

i1 : R = hodgeRing (1, 1);
i2 : lambda_1

o2 = lambda
           1

o2 : R
i3 : integral(1, 1, lambda_1)
