For a class of self-correspondencesC calledweakly hyperbolic, we give a computable formula for the contribution of a fixed point component to the Lefschetz number ofC. The formula applies to Lefschetz numbers of cohomology with coefficients in a constructible complex of sheaves (such as intersection homology).
