This expository paper is an introductory text on topological K-theory and the Atiyah-Singer index theorem, suitable for graduate students or advanced undegraduates already possessing a background in algebraic topology. The bulk of the material presented here is distilled from Atiyah's classic "K-Theory" text, as well as his series of seminal papers "The Index of Elliptic Operators" with Singer. Additional topics include equivariant K-theory, the G-index theorem, and Bott's paper "The Index… CONTINUE READING
