abstract = {The aim of this paper is to construct a natural mapping $\check\{C\}_k$, $k=1,2,3,\dots $, from the multiplicative $K$-theory $K(X)$ of a differential manifold $X$, associated to the trivial filtration of the de Rham complex, as defined by M. Karoubi in [C. R. Acad. Sci., Paris, Sér. I 302, 321-324 (1986; Zbl 0593.55004)] to the odd cohomology $H_s^\{2k-1\} (X;C^*)$. By using this mapping, the author associates to any flat complex vector bundle $E$ on $X$ characteristic classes $\check\{C\}_k(E) \in H_\{dR\}^\{2k-1\} (X;C^*)$ analogous to the classes studied by S. Chern, J. Cheeger and J. Simons in [Differential characters and geometric invariants, in ‘Geometry and topology’, Lect.
