This book treats the Atiyah-Singer index theorem using the heat equation, which gives a local formula for the index of any elliptic complex. Heat equation methods are also used to discuss Lefschetz fixed point formulas and the Gauss-Bonnet theorem.

The book studies the role played by special function theory in the formalism of mathematical physics. It demonstrates that special functions which arise in mathematical models are dictated by symmetry groups admitted by the models.
