Abstract: The index theorem of lattice Wilson-Dirac operator is a lattice-approximation of the Atiyah-Singer index theorem for twisted Dirac operators on the torus. It has been studied in the literature of lattice gauge theory as a description of the chiral anomaly. In this talk we introduce a new proof of this theorem based on higher index theory, particularly the monodromy correspondence of almost flat bundles and group quasi-representations.
