This chapter uses techniques from the theory of local dynamics of holomorphic germs tangent to the identity to prove three index theorems for global meromorphic maps of projective space. More precisely, the chapter seeks to prove a particular index theorem: Let f : ℙⁿ ⇢ ℙⁿ be a meromorphic self-map of degree ν‎ + 1 ≥ 2 of the complex n-dimensional projective space. Let Σ‎(f) = Fix(f) ∪ I(f) be the union of the indeterminacy set I(f) of f and the fixed points set Fix(f) of f. Let Σ‎(f) = ⊔subscript Greek Small Letter AlphaΣ‎subscript Greek Small Letter Alpha be the decomposition of Σ‎ in connected components, and denote by N the tautological line bundle of ℙⁿ. After laying out the statements under this theorem, the chapter discusses the proofs.

Keywords:   index theorems, local dynamics, holomorphic germs, global meromorphic maps, projective space, decomposition
