Abstract: In this article we investigate Hirzebruch-Riemann-Roch formulae for line bundles on irreducible symplectic Kähler manifolds. As Huybrechts has shown, for every irreducible symplectic Kähler manifold $X$ of dimension $2n$, there are numbers $a_0, a_2, \dots, a_{2n}$ such that

\begin{displaymath}\chi(L) = \sum_{k = 0}^n \frac{a_{2k}}{(2k)!} q_X(c_1(L))^k \end{displaymath}

for the Euler characteristic of a line bundle $L$, where $q_X: \mathrm{H}^2(X, \mathbb{C} ) \to \mathbb{C} $ is the Beauville-Bogomolov quadratic form of $X$.

Using Rozansky-Witten classes similarly to Hitchin and Sawon, we obtain a closed formula expressing the $a_{2k}$ in terms of Chern numbers of $X$.
