We start by the example of the classical Lefschetz fixed point theorem for an isometry of a compact manifold. The Lefschetz number is a localized index as a result of the pairing on the level of K-theory. The localized indices can be used to produce topological invariants of the manifold such as the Lefschetz numbers.
