    have expanded the first section at determinant line bundle. Spelled out some more details and then stated the fact that the class of the determinant line bundle of a complex vector bundle is its first Chern-class, and that this statement directly refines to differential cohomology.

    Hi Urs! I like that you joined the work on this important entry. I started doing this a while ago, but stayed rather cryptic. Now you are bringing some real explanations to it :)

    I wanted to mention the example detdet tomorrow for a talk on differential characteristic classes that I give in Rome, as a very simple and yet insightful example for a characteristic class and was surprised that the evident statement [detE]=c 1(E)[det E] = c_1(E) for a complex vector bundle EE is so hard to find explicitly in the basic literature. One finds plenty of generalized versions of this statement, but for expositional purposes I wanted just this bare one. Thanks to Domenico for tracking down references!

    I have cross-linked determinant line bundle and theta function a bit more (and vacuum energy) by pointing to (Freed 87, pages 30-31)

    (no time for more than just these pointers right now)

    Where the entry used to be vaguley referring to induced fiberwise operations (here) I have added a pointer to the new Remark on these at topological vector bundle, here.
