Abstract
In the talk we will discuss Quillen's construction of a determinant line bundle associated to a family of Cauchy-Riemann operators. I will first of all try to convince you why this is a cool thing and mention some of the many different applications. The bulk of the talk will be focused on constructing the line bundle, its hermitian metric and calculating the curvature. Hopefully a talk accessible to many.
