In the first section of this paper the index theorem of M. F. Atiyah and I. M. Singer is proved by using probabilistic methods and Lichnerowicz formulas. In the second section the index theorem for families is proved by using localization formulas, superconnections of Levi-Civita-Quillen and \(\eta\)-invariant.
