Abstract
Using representation theory, we compute the spectrum of the Dirac operator on the universal covering group of SL_2(R), exhibiting it as the generator of KK^1(C, A), where A is the reduced C*algebra of the group. This yields a new and direct computation of the Ktheory of A. A fundamental role is played by the limitofdiscreteseries representation, which is the frontier between the discrete and the principal series of the group.
