## Abstract

We study the \(L^p\)-spectrum of the Dirac operator on complete manifolds. One of the main questions in this context is whether this spectrum depends on *p*. As a first example where *p*-independence fails we compute explicitly the \(L^p\)-spectrum for the hyperbolic space and its product with compact spaces.
