Chern Character

Part of the Operator Theory: Advances and Applications book series (OT, volume 183)


The main ingredients of the cohomological formula for the Fredholm index of non-local elliptic operators are the Г-Todd class of the complexified cotangent bundle of the manifold M and the Chern character of the symbol. (Both are collections of cohomology classes defined on cotangent bundles of fixed-point manifolds M g of the action of Г.) In this chapter, we describe the Chern character.
