noncommutative residue

**Noncommutative residue** or **Wodzicki residue** is (up to a constant multiple) the only nontrivial trace functional $Res$ on the algebra of pseudodifferential operators (of arbitrary order) on a compact smooth manifold $M$. For a $\psi DO$ $P$ it can be computed as the coefficient in front of $log t$ in the asymptotic expansion of $Tr (P e^{-t \Delta})$, where $\Delta$ is the Laplacian, or equivalently, in terms of the usual residue, $res_{s=0} Tr(P \Delta^{-s})$.

If $M$ is Riemannian, $P$ an elliptic operator of the negative integer order equal $-dim M$ then, by a result of Connes, the Wodzicki residue coincides with the Dixmier trace?.
