### bootstrap class ($C^*$-algebras): comparison of two definitions

I want to clarify the relationship between two (at first sight) different definitions of the bootstrap class for $C^*$-algebras, in order to understand which $C^*$-algebras satisfy the universal ...

### reference for KK theory

I wanted to ask you, if you have any good references (book or pdf) to learn about the KK theroy of Kasparov. I think the presentation of Blackadar is too close from the commutative theory.
I was ...

### Differential structures and K-homology groups

What is an example of a (compact) manifold, which has two non-equivalent differential structures such that the K-homology groups are non-isomorphic? If no such example exists, i.e. "K-homology does ...

### The structure map of topological K-theory

This may be a silly question but I don't know the answer.
I know the construction of (equivariant) K-spectrum $KU_G$ and the periodicity of (equivariant) K-theory. But I don't know its structure maps ...

### When is a cycle in $KK^G(A,A)$ with zero operator the identity cycle?

Given a cycle of the form $(\pi,H,0)$ in $KK^G(A,A)$, when is it equivalent to the identity cycle $1_A=(i_A,A,0)$?
The operator $T=0$, and $\pi:A \rightarrow L(H)$ may be injective.
Any criterions ...

### Is $KK^G(\mathbb{C}^n,B)$ countably additive in $B$ and countable?

Let $G$ be a finite discrete groupoid, $A=\mathbb{C}^n$ a finite dimensional, commutative $C^*$-algebra and assume we have given a $G$-action on $A$. Note that the action of $G$ on $\mathbb{C}^n=C_0(\{...

### Definition of homotopy between Kasparov modules

I'm trying to understand the definition of homotopy between Kasparov modules as presented in Blackadar's book on K-theory for operator algebras. $A,B$ will be C*-algebras, while $E$ will denote a ...

### Lifting triangles in K-theory to KL-groups

Let $X$ and $Y$ be finite simplicial complexes (or $CW$-complexes) so that $Y\subseteq X$. Let $s\colon C(X)\to C(Y)$ be the map given by restriction. In particular $K_{*}(C(X))$ and $K_{*}(C(Y))$ are ...

### KK-theory as a stable infinity-category and KU Mod

The category KK of bivariant operator K-theory (or possibly its E-theory variant) ought to be the homotopy category of something at least close to a stable infinity-category; notably in that it ...

### KK-witnesses of Gysin maps between differentiable stacks

In 1982 Alain Connes gave the construction of a KK-element $f! \in KK(C(X), C(Y))$ that "witnesses" the fiber integration/Gysin/Umkehr/wrong-way map on topological $K$-theory along a K-orientable map ...
