Weil indices are attached individually to local Well representations of local symplectic groups and, collectively (and in a product formula), to the adélic Weil Θ funtional. Therefore Weil indices can be attached to classical ζ functions. Root numbers, or local constants, are attached to the decomposition of L and functions into local factors. Since there is a classical integral-transform connection between ζ and ζ there must be an according conection between Weil indices and local constants. We prove that this is so for the prototypical case of the Dedekind ζ funtion, and, indeed, that this relationship is given in terms of an equation involving an integral of dimension nplus1 where n is the degree of the underlying (totally real) algebraic number field
