Compute Shader won't Fill Texture

I'm trying to set up a simple compute shader program which simply fills a given texture with pixel data of a certain color.  Here is my CPU side code:

bool Init(void)
	D3D11_TEXTURE2D_DESC texture_desc;

	texture_desc.ArraySize = 1;
	texture_desc.CPUAccessFlags = 0;
	texture_desc.Format = DXGI_FORMAT_R8G8B8A8_UNORM;
	texture_desc.Width = this->image_width;
	texture_desc.Height = this->image_height;
	texture_desc.MipLevels = 1;
	texture_desc.MiscFlags = 0;
	texture_desc.SampleDesc.Count = 1; 
	texture_desc.SampleDesc.Quality = 0;
	texture_desc.Usage = D3D11_USAGE_DEFAULT;

	texture_SRV_desc.Texture2D.MipLevels = 1;
	texture_SRV_desc.Texture2D.MostDetailedMip = 0;
	texture_SRV_desc.Format = DXGI_FORMAT_R8G8B8A8_UNORM;
	texture_SRV_desc.ViewDimension = D3D11_SRV_DIMENSION_TEXTURE2D;

	texture_UAV_desc.Format = DXGI_FORMAT_R8G8B8A8_UNORM;
	texture_UAV_desc.ViewDimension = D3D11_UAV_DIMENSION_TEXTURE2D;
	texture_UAV_desc.Texture2D.MipSlice = 0;
	if (FAILED(res = this->renderer->GetDevice()->CreateTexture2D(&texture_desc, NULL, &this->texture)))
		return false;
	if (FAILED(res = this->renderer->GetDevice()->CreateUnorderedAccessView(this->texture, &texture_UAV_desc, &this->texture_uav)))
		return false;

	if (FAILED(res = this->renderer->GetDevice()->CreateShaderResourceView(this->texture, &texture_SRV_desc, &this->texture_SRV)))
		return false;

	if (!this->create_compute_shader())
		return false;


	return true;

void invoke_compute_shader(void)
	ID3D11ShaderResourceView *nullSRV = { NULL };
	ID3D11UnorderedAccessView *nullUAV = { NULL };
	ID3D11ComputeShader *nullCShader = { NULL };

	this->renderer->GetDeviceContext()->CSSetShader(this->shader, NULL, 0);

	this->renderer->GetDeviceContext()->CSSetUnorderedAccessViews(1, 1, &this->texture_uav, NULL);

	this->renderer->GetDeviceContext()->Dispatch(32, 32, 1);

	this->renderer->GetDeviceContext()->CSSetShaderResources(0, 1, &nullSRV);
	this->renderer->GetDeviceContext()->CSSetUnorderedAccessViews(0, 1, &nullUAV, 0);
	this->renderer->GetDeviceContext()->CSSetShader(nullCShader, 0, 0);

Here is the compute shader code itself:

RWTexture2D<float4> output_texture : register(u0);

[numthreads(32, 32, 1)]
void CSMain( uint3 dispatch_tid : SV_DispatchThreadID )
	uint2 index = uint2(dispatch_tid.x, dispatch_tid.y);;
	output_texture[index] = float4(1.0f, 1.0f, 0.0f, 1.0f);

I've taken a look at the texture in Visual Studio's Resource Visualizer and it shows an empty texture.  What are my doing wrong?

When you call CSSetUnorderedAccessViews to bind your texture to the CS stage, you're passing "1" as the StartSlot parameter. This is binding your UAV to register u1, and not u0 like your shader expects. Try changing that to 0 instead.
