### Proof that the Hodge-de Rham Rank Equals the Euler Characteristic

Can someone please provide a good (online accessible) reference for the well-known identity
$$
\text{rank((d + d}^*)^+) = \sum_{i=}^n (-1)^i \dim(H^i(M)),
$$

### The proof of the splitting principle in equivariant K-theory via flag manifolds

In Atiyah's famous paper "Bott periodicity and the index of elliptic operators" section 4, he proved the splitting principle for unitary groups (Propostion 4.9 in that paper), namely:
Let $j: ...

### The equivariant index of Dirac operator

Let us consider the Dirac complex
\begin{equation}
D_{\rm Dirac}:S^+\to S^-
\end{equation}
where $S^{\pm}$ are the chiral-spinor bundles on $\mathbb{R}^4$.
Using the fact that the bundle $S^+$ is ...
