Bilipschitz invariance of the first transverse characteristic map

Michel Hilsum (2012)

Banach Center Publications

Given a smooth S¹-foliated bundle, A. Connes has shown the existence of an additive morphism ϕ from the K-theory group of the foliation C*-algebra to the scalar field, which factorizes, via the assembly map, the Godbillon-Vey class, which is the first secondary characteristic class, of the classifying space. We prove the invariance of this map under a bilipschitz homeomorphism, extending a previous result for maps of class C¹ by H. Natsume.

Cyclic homology and equivariant theories

Jean-Luc Brylinski (1987)

Annales de l'institut Fourier

In this article, we present two possible extensions of the classical theory of equivariant cohomology. The first, due to P. Baum, R. MacPherson and the author, is called the “delocalized theory". We attempt to present it in very concrete form for a circle action on a smooth manifold. The second is the cyclic homology of the crossed- product algebra of the algebra of smooth functions on a manifold, by the convolution algebra of smooth functions on a Lie group, when such Lie group act on the manifold....
