The Dirac Operator on Generalized Taub-NUT Spaces



We find sufficient conditions for the absence of harmonic L2 spinors on spin manifolds constructed as cone bundles over a compact Kähler base. These conditions are fulfilled for certain perturbations of the Euclidean metric, and also for the generalized Taub-NUT metrics of Iwai-Katayama, thus proving a conjecture of Vişinescu and the second author.
