The main idea of this talk is to introduce the notion of a Dirac Operator from the physical problem of finding the quantum equation for a relativistic electron. After that we will explore how these ideas can be generalized in order to find a general geometric setting for these operators and how they can be used to construct a bridge between analysis and topology via index theorems.
