The lecture presents current results on heat trace expansions, and the related resolvent trace and zeta function expansions, for elliptic operators with boundary conditions on n-dimensional compact manifolds. As a background, we recall the set-up of elliptic differential operators with differential boundary conditions having heat trace expansions in powers k-n c k t k/m . Then we consider the spectral boundary conditions of Atiyah, Patodi and Singer for Dirac-type first-order operators, leading to expansions with additional logarithmic terms k0 c k t k/2 logt (joint work with Seeley 1995) ; an extension to “well-posed” problems is included in a general study of pseudo-normal boundary conditions (1999). New results are presented on the vanishing or stability of the c k -coefficients ; special features appear when n is odd. Finally, we study the pseudodifferential projection boundary conditions proposed by Vassilevich (2001) in string- and brane-theory, showing that they too have heat expansions with log-terms, under suitable hypotheses. In all cases, the lowest log-coefficient c 0 vanishes, which assures that the zeta function is regular at 0.
