Summary The formula for the Hirzebruch X-y-genus of complex manifolds is a consequence of the Hirzebruch-Riemann-koch formula. The classical index formulae for Todd genus, Euler number and signature correspond to the case when the complex variable y = 0, -1 and 1 respectively. Here we give a direct derivation of this nice formula based on supersymmetric quantum mechanics.
