Title: Higher eta invariants of elliptic operators and its applications

Abstract: We apply Suleyman Kagan Samurkas' recent result to extend John Lott's higher eta invariants to a more general setting. We prove a higher index theorem for manifolds with boundary using the higher eta invariants. We establish rationality of the higher eta invariants when the Baum-Connes conjecture holds. This is joint work with Zhizhang Xie.
