In mathematics, an **index** is a superscript or subscript to a symbol. Superscript indices are often, but not always, used to indicate powers. Subscript indices are usually used to label a set or sequence of variables. See also index set and family (mathematics).

The index of a subgroup is the number of its left cosets (which is equal to the number of its right cosets). In mathematics, if G is a group, H a subgroup of G, and g an element of G, then gH = { gh : h an element of H } is a left coset of H in G, and Hg = { hg : h an element of H } is a right coset of H in G...

The index of a Fredholm operator is the dimension of its kernel minus the dimension of its cokernel. In mathematics, a Fredholm operator is a bounded linear operator between two Banach spaces whose range is closed and whose kernel and cokernel are finite-dimensional. ...
In the various branches of mathematics that fall under the heading of abstract algebra, the kernel of a homomorphism measures the degree to which the homomorphism fails to be injective. ...
In abstract algebra, the cokernel of a homomorphism f : X → Y is the quotient of Y by the image of f. ...
The index of a real quadratic form *Q* is defined (but not always consistently) as *p* − *q* where *Q* can be written as a difference of *p* squared linear terms and *q* squared linear terms. In mathematics, a quadratic form is a homogeneous polynomial of degree two in a number of variables. ...
