### On Connes' fomulae of pairing between cyclic cohomology and K-theory

The following proposition comes from Connes' paper in IHES. See the link Non-commutative differential geometry. On page 109, Proposition 15. of Part II, he claims that (1) The following equality ...

### Cyclic homology with coefficients in a bimodule

I've recently been trying to understand Hochschild and cyclic co/homology better, and I've noticed that while it's common to define the Hochschild homology $\mathrm{HH}_{\bullet}(A;M)$ of an $R$-...

### On the initiality of the inclusion from the simplex category to the paracycle category

Thm B.3 of Nikolaus and Scholze shows that the natural inclusion $\Delta \to \Lambda_\infty$, from the simplex category to the paracycle category, is an initial functor, i.e. satisfies the hypotheses ...

### How to compute the periodic cyclic homology of this algebra

Let $k=\mathbb{C}$ be the field of complex numbers. I consider the (DG) algebra $A:=k[x]/(x^2)$ such that $\deg(x)=-1$. My question is how to compute the periodic cyclic homology, Hochschild homology ...

### Cyclic K-theory as cyclic nerve in a letter of Goodwillie

Kaledin mentioned in https://arxiv.org/abs/2004.04279 Remark 11.5 that, in a letter to Waldhausen by Goodwillie in 1988, Goodwillie showed that the cyclic K-theory can be computed by the geometric ...

### Can cyclic and simplicial objects be related in a similar way to how the species of linear orders is the derivative of the species of cyclic orders?

The derivative of a combinatorial species $S: core(FinSet) \to core(FinSet)$ is given by $S^\prime [N] = S[N\sqcup 1]$. Intuitively, an $S^\prime$-structure is built by introducing a "hole" ...

### Is the localised $S^1$-equivariant cohomology of the free loop space of a space $X$ isomorphic to that of $X$ itself?

A well-known theorem of Atiyah and Bott states that given a finite dimensional oriented manifold $M$ with circle action, the $S^1$-equivariant cohomology of $M$ (with $\mathbb{Q}$ coefficients) is ...

### Does a morphism which induces an isomorphism between Hochschild homology also induce an isomorphism between cyclic homology?

In a 1998 paper by B. Keller, the author consider the following problem in Section 1.4: Let $k$ be a commutative ring and $X$ a scheme over $k$. We can consider the cyclic homology as well as the ...

### Equivariant L-infinity structure associated to a DGBV algebra

Let $V$ be a differential graded Batalin-Vilkovisky (DGBV) algebra over say $\mathbb{C}$. This means that $V$ is a commutative differential graded algebra (CDGA), with differential $\partial$ of ...

### Two approaches to periodic cyclic cohomology

Cyclic cohomology may be defined in several ways: the easiest way to define it is via a subcomplex $C^*_{\lambda}$of Hochschild complex consisting from cyclic cochains. There are also other ...

### Morita equivalence and isomorphisms in cohomology theories

Let $A,B$ be two unital algebras. We say that $A,B$ are Morita equivalent if there are $A-B$ and $B-A$ bimodules $P,Q$ such that $$P \otimes_{B} Q \cong A, Q \otimes_A P \cong B$$ (as $A-A$ and $B-B$ ...

### Dense subalgebra of continuous functions with same K -theory

Suppose $X$ is a compact metric space. Is there a good candidate for a dense subalgebra $A\subseteq C(X)$, such that the inclusion induces an isomorphism in $K$-theory? For example, if $X$ was a ...

### Topological invariance of periodic cyclic homology of stacks

Goodwillie proved (in Cyclic homology, derivations, and the free loopspace) that the periodic cyclic homology of a connective dg algebra is that of its reduced classical ring. Preygel proved (in Ind-...

### Quasi isomorphism for bicomplexes both defining cyclic cohomology

Let $A$ be a complex unital algebra. Consider the cyclic (cohomological) bicomplex $\mathcal{C}(A)$. This is a bicomplex where in the $p$-th row one has $C^p(A)$ (the space of all $p+1$-linear forms) ...

### Isomorphism in cyclic cohomology vs isomorphism in Hochschild cohomology

Let $A$ be a unital algebra over a field $K$, $C^n(A)$ a space of all $n+1$ linear maps into scalar field $k$ (I'm interested in case $k=\mathbb{C}$) and (bf)(a_0,...,a_{n+1})=\sum_{i=0}^n(-1)^if(...

### Concerning the $SBI$-sequence for dihedral homology (Loday, Cyclic Homology, 5.2)

I was wondering about the signs of the $SBI$-sequence ("Connes' periodicity exact sequence") in equations $(5.2.7.2)$ and $(5.2.7.3)$ of 'Cyclic Homology' by Jean-Louis Loday. Why is the sequence ...
