Introduction to Characteritic Classes and Index Theory
by Jean-Pierre Schneiders
Publisher: Universidade de Lisboa 2000
Number of pages: 236
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.
