Notes on the Atiyah-Singer Index Theorem
by

Publisher: University of Notre Dame
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.
