From the text: A classification of elliptic operators on smooth manifolds up to homotopy is an essential point in the solution of the index problem by Atiyah and Singer. In this paper, we solve the problem of homotopy classification on an arbitrary stratified manifold. The classification is in terms of the \(K\)-homology of a stratified manifold. The ideas of Atiyah concerning the realization of \(K\)-homology by generalized elliptic operators [M. F. Atiyah, in: Proc. Int. Conf. Funct. Anal. Rel. Topics, Tokyo 1969, 21–30 (1970; Zbl 0193.43601)] allow us to avoid the difficulties caused by the fact that, in the situation under consideration, the operators modulo compact operators are determined by whole sets of symbols on strata rather than by only one symbol, and that the ellipticity condition is of an infinite-dimensional character. As applications, we obtain an index formula and a topological obstruction for Fredholm problems and calculate the \(K\)-group of algebras of pseudodifferential operators (PDOs).
