In mathematics, the Bott residue formula, introduced by Bott (1967), describes a sum over the fixed points of a holomorphic vector field of a compact complex manifold.


If v is a holomorphic vector field on a compact complex manifold M, then

\( \sum_{v(p)=0}\frac{P(A_p)}{\det A_p} = \int_M P(i\Theta/2\pi) \)


The sum is over the fixed points p of the vector field v
The linear transformation Ap is the action induced by v on the holomorphic tangent space at p
P is an invariant polynomial function of matrices of degree dim(M)
Θ is a curvature matrix of the holomorphic tangent bundle
