Abstract: In this talk, we introduce the RaySinger analytic torsion as the determinant of Laplace operators and the extended CheegerMueller Theorem by BismutZhang which gives the explicit relation between the RaySinger analytic torsion and the Reidemeister torsion. Note that the Reidemeister torsion is the first topological invariant in the history distinguishing the homotopy equivalent but not homeomorphic manifolds. At last, we explain the complex valued torsion, BurgheleaHaller torsion and CappellMiller torsion, and the resent results by LiuYu and SuZhang.
