L2-index formula for proper cocompact group actions

Hang Wang[1]

(1) Tsinghua University, Beijing, China

We study index theory of G-invariant elliptic pseudo-differential operators acting on a complete Riemannian manifold, where a unimodular, locally compact group G acts properly, cocompactly and isometrically. An L2-index formula is obtained using the heat kernel method.

Keywords: L2-index, K-theoretic index, G-trace, heat kernel
