We prove that the kernels of the restrictions of the symplectic Dirac operator and one of the two symplectic Dirac–Dolbeault operators on natural sub-bundles of polynomial valued spinor fields are finite dimensional on a compact symplectic manifold. We compute these kernels explicitly for complex projective spaces and show that the remaining Dirac–Dolbeault operator has infinite dimensional kernels on these finite rank sub-bundles. We construct injections of subgroups of the symplectic group (the pseudo-unitary group and the stabiliser of a Lagrangian subspace) in the Mpc group and classify G-invariant Mpc-structures on symplectic manifolds with a G-action. We prove a variant of Parthasarathy’s formula for the commutator of two symplectic Dirac-type operators on general symmetric symplectic spaces. [less ▲]

We define the notions of trace, determinant and, more generally, Berezinian of matrices over a (Z_2)^n-graded commutative associative algebra A. The applications include a new approach to the classical theory of matrices with coefficients in a Clifford algebra, in particular of quaternionic matrices. In a special case, we recover the classical Dieudonné determinant of quaternionic matrices, but in general our quaternionic determinant is different. We show that the graded determinant of purely even (Z_2)^n-graded matrices of degree 0 is polynomial in its entries. In the case of the algebra A = H of quaternions, we calculate the formula for the Berezinian in terms of a product of quasiminors in the sense of Gelfand, Retakh, and Wilson. The graded trace is related to the graded Berezinian (and determinant) by a (Z_2)^n-graded version of Liouville’s formula. [less ▲]
