Derivations on Toeplitz Algebras Let $H^2(\Omega)$ be the Hardy space on a strictly pseudoconvex domain $\Omega \subset
\mathbb{C}^n$,
and let $A \subset L^\infty(\partial \Omega)$ denote the subalgebra of all $L^\infty$-functions $f$
with compact Hankel operator $H_f$. Given any closed subalgebra $B \subset A$ containing $C(\partial \Omega)$,
we describe the first Hochschild cohomology group of the
corresponding Toeplitz algebra $\mathcal(B) \subset B(H^2(\Omega))$.
In particular, we show that every derivation on $\mathcal{T}(A)$ is inner. These results are new even for $n=1$,
where it follows that every derivation on $\mathcal{T}(H^\infty+C)$ is inner, while there are non-inner
derivations on $\mathcal{T}(H^\infty+C(\partial \mathbb{B}_n))$ over
the unit ball $\mathbb{B}_n$ in dimension $n\gt 1$.

The Index Theory Associated to a Non-Finite Trace on a $C^\ast$-Algebra The index theory considered in this paper, a
generalisation of the classical Fredholm index theory, is obtained
in terms of a non-finite trace on a unital $C^\ast$-algebra. We relate
it to the index theory of M.~Breuer, which is developed in a
von~Neumann algebra setting, by means of a representation theorem.
We show how our new index theory can be used to obtain an index
theorem for Toeplitz operators on the compact group $\mathbf{U}(2)$,
where the classical index theory does not give any interesting result.
