Topics in Algebraic and Topological K-Theory by Paul Frank Baum, Guillermo Cortiñas, Ralf Meyer, Rubén

By Paul Frank Baum, Guillermo Cortiñas, Ralf Meyer, Rubén Sánchez-García, Marco Schlichting, Bertrand Toën

This quantity is an introductory textbook to K-theory, either algebraic and topological, and to numerous present study subject matters in the box, together with Kasparov's bivariant K-theory, the Baum-Connes conjecture, the comparability among algebraic and topological K-theory of topological algebras, the K-theory of schemes, and the idea of dg-categories.

The groups Ktop ∗ (G, A) are supposed to be computable by topological methods. We present one approach to make this precise that works completely within equivariant Kasparov theory and is a special case of a very general machinery for constructing spectral sequences. We carry over notions from homological algebra like exact chain complexes and projective objects to our category and use them to detop fine derived functors (see [27]). The derived functors of K∗ (G r A) and K∗ (G, A) top agree and form the E 2 -term of a spectral sequence that converges towards K∗ (G, A).

Let Bn be the braid group on n strands, for any positive integer n. Then the Baum– Connes conjecture is true for Bn .

Let Γ be the fundamental group of M.
