Abstract: This paper extends the index theory of perturbed Dirac operators to a collection of noncompact even-dimensional manifolds that includes both complete and incomplete examples. The index formulas are topological in nature. They can involve a compactly supported standard index form as well as a form associated with a Toeplitz pairing on a hypersurface.
