Basic Noncommutative Geometry by Masoud Khalkhali

By Masoud Khalkhali

This article offers an creation to noncommutative geometry and a few of its purposes. it may be used both as a textbook for a graduate direction or for self-study. it will likely be beneficial for graduate scholars and researchers in arithmetic and theoretical physics and all people who are attracted to gaining an figuring out of the topic. One function of this e-book is the wealth of examples and workouts that support the reader to navigate during the topic. whereas history fabric is equipped within the textual content and in numerous appendices, a few familiarity with easy notions of practical research, algebraic topology, differential geometry and homological algebra at a primary 12 months graduate point is helpful.

Developed through Alain Connes because the overdue Nineteen Seventies, noncommutative geometry has stumbled on many functions to long-standing conjectures in topology and geometry and has lately made headways in theoretical physics and quantity conception. The booklet starts off with a close description of a few of the main pertinent algebrageometry correspondences by way of casting geometric notions in algebraic phrases, then proceeds within the moment bankruptcy to the belief of a noncommutative house and the way it truly is developed. The final chapters take care of homological instruments: cyclic cohomology and Connes–Chern characters in K-theory and K-homology, culminating in a single commutative diagram expressing the equality of topological and analytic index in a noncommutative atmosphere. functions to integrality of noncommutative topological invariants are given as well.

Two new sections were further to this moment version: one matters the Gauss–Bonnet theorem and the definition and computation of the scalar curvature of the curved noncommutative torus, and the second one is a quick creation to Hopf cyclic cohomology. The bibliography has been prolonged and a few new examples are provided.

The idea of symmetry in classical geometry is encoded via the action of a group or Lie algebra on a space. This can be extended to noncommutative geometry by considering an action or coaction of a Hopf algebra on a noncommutative algebra (or coalgebra) representing a noncommutative space.

This correspondence is essentially due to Riemann. Despite its depth and beauty, this correspondence so far has not revealed any way of finding the noncommutative analogue of complex geometry. Another possible approach to the idea of complex structures in noncommutative geometry is based on the notion of a positive Hochschild cocycle on an involutive algebra defined in [46]. Other contributions include [118] where noncommutative complex structures motivated by the Dolbeault complex were introduced, and [161] where a detailed study of holomorphic structures on noncommutative tori and holomorphic vector bundles on them is carried out.

As a set Spec A consists of all prime ideals of A (an ideal I A is called prime if I ¤ A, and for all a, b in A, ab 2 A implies that either a 2 I or b 2 I ). I / Spec A be the set of all prime ideals which contain I . Ii / show that the intersection of a family of closed sets is closed and the union of two closed sets is closed as well). One checks that Spec A is always compact but is not necessarily Hausdorff. For each prime ideal p A, let Ap denote the localization of A at p. U / be the set of all continuous sections s W U !
