Coarse topology, enlargeability, and essentialness

Bernhard Hanke, Dieter Kotschick, John Roe, Thomas Schick (2008)

Annales scientifiques de l'École Normale Supérieure

Using methods from coarse topology we show that fundamental classes of closed enlargeable manifolds map non-trivially both to the rational homology of their fundamental groups and to the K -theory of the corresponding reduced C * -algebras. Our proofs do not depend on the Baum–Connes conjecture and provide independent confirmation for specific predictions derived from this conjecture.

Combinatoire des simplexes sans singularités I. Le cas différentiable

Jean Cerf (1998)

Annales de l'institut Fourier

On définit le bicomplexe C , , extension naturelle du complexe C engendré par un ensemble simplicial Γ . Ceci permet de définir la notion de ruban de base un cycle de C . La somme directe de l’homologie des colonnes de C , contient, outre l’homologie de C , des groupes dans lesquels se trouvent les obstructions à l’existence de rubans. Si Γ est un sous-ensemble simplicial, stable par subdivision, de l’ensemble des simplexes singuliers d’un espace topologique, l’existence de rubans entraîne l’invariance...

Cubical approximation and computation of homology

William Kalies, Konstantin Mischaikow, Greg Watson (1999)

Banach Center Publications

The purpose of this article is to introduce a method for computing the homology groups of cellular complexes composed of cubes. We will pay attention to issues of storage and efficiency in performing computations on large complexes which will be required in applications to the computation of the Conley index. The algorithm used in the homology computations is based on a local reduction procedure, and we give a subquadratic estimate of its computational complexity. This estimate is rigorous in two...

Holonomy, twisting cochains and characteristic classes

G. Sharygin (2011)

Annales de la faculté des sciences de Toulouse Mathématiques

This paper contains a description of various geometric constructions associated with fibre bundles, given in terms of important algebraic object, the “twisting cochain". Our examples include the Chern-Weil classes, the holonomy representation and the so-called cyclic Chern character of Bismut and others (see [2, 11, 27]), also called the Bismut’s class. The later example is the principal one for us, since we are motivated by the attempt to find an algebraic approach to the Witten’s index formula....
