The positivity of the Dutta multiplicity of a perfect complex of $A$-modules of length equal to the dimension of $A$ and with homology of finite length is proven for homomorphic images of regular local rings containing a field of characteristic zero. The proof uses relations between localized Chern characters and Adams operations.
