Shelstad's character identity from the point of view of index theory

Shelstad's character identity is an equality between sums of characters of tempered representations in corresponding $L$-packets of two real, semisimple, linear, algebraic groups that are inner forms to each other. We reconstruct this character identity in the case of the discrete series, using index theory of elliptic operators in the framework of $K$-theory. Our geometric proof of the character identity is evidence that index theory can play a role in the classification of group representat...

Fundamental group of a manifold gives a deep effect on its underlying smooth structure. In this paper we introduce a new variant of the Donaldson invariant in Yang-Mills gauge theory from twisting by the Picard group of a four manifold in the case when the fundamental group is free abelian. We then generalize it to the general case of fundamental groups by use of the framework of non commutative geometry. We also verify that our invariant distinguishes smooth structures between some homeomorp...

Orbital integrals and $K$-theory classes

Let $G$ be a semisimple Lie group with discrete series. We use maps $K_0(C^*_rG)\to \mathbb{C}$ defined by orbital integrals to recover group theoretic information about $G$, including information contained in $K$-theory classes not associated to the discrete series. An important tool is a fixed point formula for equivariant indices obtained by the authors in an earlier paper. Applications include a tool to distinguish classes in $K_0(C^*_rG)$, the (known) injectivity of Dirac induction, vers...

A fixed point formula and Harish-Chandra's character formula

The main result in this paper is a fixed point formula for equivariant indices of elliptic differential operators, for proper actions by connected semisimple Lie groups on possibly noncompact manifolds, with compact quotients. For compact groups and manifolds, this reduces to the Atiyah-Segal-Singer fixed point formula. Other special cases include an index theorem by Connes and Moscovici for homogeneous spaces, and an earlier index theorem by the second author, both in cases where the group a...

Positive Scalar Curvature and Poincare Duality for Proper Actions

For G an almost-connected Lie group, we study G-equivariant index theory for proper co-compact actions with various applications, including obstructions to and existence of G-invariant Riemannian metrics of positive scalar curvature. We prove a rigidity result for almost-complex manifolds, generalising Hattori's results, and an analogue of Petrie's conjecture. When G is an almost-connected Lie group or a discrete group, we establish Poincare duality between G-equivariant K-homology and K-theo...
