**Notes on the Atiyah-Singer Index Theorem**

by

**Liviu I. Nicolaescu**-

**University of Notre Dame**

This is arguably one of the deepest and most beautiful results in modern geometry, and it is surely a must know for any geometer / topologist. It has to do with elliptic partial differential operators on a compact manifold.
