Abstract

We provide criteria for self-adjointness and τ\tau-Fredholmness of first and second order differential operators acting on sections of infinite dimensional bundles, whose fibers are modules of finite type over a von Neumann algebra AA endowed with a trace τ\tau. We extend the Callias-type index to operators acting on sections of such bundles and show that this index is stable under compact perturbations.
