**Introduction to Characteritic Classes and Index Theory**

by Jean-Pierre Schneiders

**Publisher**: Universidade de Lisboa 2000**ISBN/ASIN**: 9728394128**Number of pages**: 236

**Description**:

This text deals with characteristic classes of real and complex vector bundles and Hirzebruch-Riemann-Roch formula. We will present a few basic but fundamental facts which should help the reader to gain a good idea of the mathematics involved. The reader is assumed to have a good knowledge of homological algebra and topology.
