Analytic K-Homology by Nigel Higson and John Roe Oxford University Press, 2000

This text acquaints the reader with the essential ideas of analytic K-homology and develops some of its applications. It includes an introduction to the necessary functional analysis, followed by a detailed treatment of C*-algebra extension theory and an exploration of the connections between K-homology and operator theory, coarse geometry, index theory and assembly maps.

Surveys in Noncommutative Geometry edited by Nigel Higson and John Roe

American Mathematical Society/Clay Mathematics Institute, 2006 Proceedings from the Clay Mathematics Institute Instructional Symposium, held in conjection with the AMS-IMS-SIAM Joint Summer Research Conference on Noncommutative Geometry, June 18-29, 2000, Mount Holyoke College, South Hadley, MA. The meeting centered around several series of expository lectures that were intended to introduce key topics in noncommutative geometry to mathematicians unfamiliar with the subject.Topics covered include: various applications of noncommutative geometry to problems in geometry and topology; the Riemann hypothesis and the possible application of the methods of noncommutative geometry in number theory; and the residue index theorem of Connes and Moscovici.

Operator K-Theory and the Atiyah-Singer Index Theorem by Nigel Higson and John Roe

In preparation for Princeton University Press

This book will present lectures that were delivered to the 2004 Spring Institute on Noncommutative Geometry and Operator Algebras at Vanderbilt University. The book aims to give a complete account of the Atiyah-Singer index theorem, and at the same time introduce a number of important concepts of noncommutative geometry, including groupoid algebras, K-theory for foliations, asymptotic morphisms and assembly maps.
