## Abstract:

We define the eta function of Dirac operators on foliated manifolds. We show that the eta functions are regular at the origin thus defining corresponding eta invariants of foliated manifolds. Under the hypothesis of invertibility of the operator in question, we prove the Atiyah-Singer relative index theorem for Dirac operators on foliated manifolds. Then we discuss the homotopy invariance of the index with respect to secondary data.## References
