    Abstract

    On Riemannian or spin manifolds, there are geometric first order differential operators called generalized gradients. In this article, we prove that the Dirac operator twisted with an associated bundle is a linear combination of some generalized gradients. This observation allows us to find all the homomorphism type Weitzenböck formulas. We also give some applications.
