Proofs that the classifying space of Connes' cycle category $\Lambda$ is $\mathbb C \mathbb P^\infty$

Connes showed in Cohomologie cyclique et foncteurs $Ext^n$ (1983) that the classifying space of his cycle category $\Lambda$ is $\mathbb C \mathbb P^\infty = B(S^1) = K(\mathbb Z,2)$. Connes' proof is ...

Morphisms of Hochschild (or cyclic) homology induced by homotopic maps

Let $f$ and $g$ be two maps between DG algebras $A$ and $B$, and assume that $f$ and $g$ are homotopic as chain maps, hence they induce the same map on the level of homology. Moreover, $f$ and $g$ ...
