# Explicit construction of Atiyah-Singer indices for maximally hypoelliptic operators on contact manifolds

@inproceedings{Tian2021ExplicitCO, title={Explicit construction of Atiyah-Singer indices for maximally hypoelliptic operators on contact manifolds}, author={Mi Tian}, year={2021} }

The Atiyah-Singer index theorem gives a topological formula for the index of an elliptic differential operator. Enlightening from Alain Connes’ tangent groupoid proof of the index theoremand van Erp’s research for theHeisenberg index theory on contact manifolds, we give an explicit construction of a series of maps, whose induced map in K-theory is the Heisenberg Atiyah-Singer index map on contact manifolds. Our methods derive from Higson’s construction for symbol class inK-theory.
