he SU(N) Yang-Mills matrix model admits self-dual and anti-self-dual instantons. When coupled to Nf flavors of massless quarks, the Euclidean Dirac equation in an instanton background has n+ positive and n− negative chirality zero modes. We show that the index (n+−n−) is equal to a suitably defined instanton charge. Further, we show that the path integral measure is not invariant under a chiral rotation, and relate the non-invariance of the measure to the index of the Dirac operator. Axial symmetry is broken anomalously, with the residual symmetry being a finite group. For Nf fundamental fermions, this residual symmetry is Z2Nf, whereas for adjoint quarks it is Z4Nf.
