Abstract [en]

Mathai-Quillen (MQ) formalism is a prescription to construct a Gaussian shaped Thom form for a vector bundle. The aim of this master thesis is to formulate a new Thom form representative using geometrical aspects of Batalin-Vilkovisky (BV) quantization. In the first part of the work we review the BV and MQ formalisms both in finite dimensional setting. Finally, to achieve our purpose, we will exploit the odd Fourier transform considering the MQ representative as a function over the appropriate graded manifold.
