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

by Liviu I. Nicolaescu

**Publisher**: University of Notre Dame 2005**Number of pages**: 135

**Description**:

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.
