Publisher Synopsis

Praise for the first edition ... 'The quest for the proof leads through functional analysis, C^* and von Neumann algebras, topological groupoids, characteristic classes and K-theory along a foliation, and the theory of pseudodifferential operators. It is a long but very rewarding journey and Moore and Schochet have performed a valuable service in putting all this material in one place in an easily readable form ... The book contains a wealth of information. It is not for those who wish an overview...However, for those wishing a comprehensive proof ... this book is indispensable.' AMS Bulletin 'This book presents a complete proof of this beautiful result, generalized to foliated spaces (not just manifolds). It includes the necessary background from analysis geometry and topology. This second edition has improved exposition, an updated bibliography, an index, and additional material covering developments and applications since the first edition came out.'
