Abstract: 

After a short reminder of the Atiyah-Patodi-Singer index theorem, I will explain an index theorem that is in many ways analogous, but  applies to hyperbolic operators instead of elliptic ones. In particular it can deal with the Dirac operator on a space-time with  compact spacelike part. If there is time I will discuss some applications in physics and the  relation to the chiral anomaly (Joint work with C. Baer)
