Une démonstration de la conjecture of Connes-Kasparov pour les groupes de Lie linéaires connexes réductifs. (A proof of the Connes-Kasparov conjecture for connected reductive linear Lie groups). (French) Zbl 0615.22011
In J. Funct. Anal. 53, 269-286 (1983; Zbl 0542.22013), M. G. Penington and the reviewer verified the Connes-Kasparov conjecture for complex semisimple groups G, by assembling the Fourier components of the twisted Dirac operator on G/K. The author extends this method to linear reductive groups. The technical difficulties increase greatly, and this note is a miniature tour de force.
