Closed Legendrian (d − 1)-dimensional locally rectifiable currents on the sphere bundle in \(\mathbb{R}\)d are considered and the associated index functions are studied. A topological condition assuring the validity of a local version of the Gauss–Bonnet formula is established. The case of lower-dimensional Lipschitz submanifolds in \(\mathbb{R}\)d and their associated normal cycles is examined in detail.
