Abstract

In this note we show that a simple modification of supersymmetric quantum mechanics involving a mass term for half the fermions naturally leads to a derivation of the integral formula for the chi_y genus, a quantity that interpolates between the Euler characteristic and arithmetic genus. We note tha...
