Connes fusion of spinors on loop space

  title={Connes fusion of spinors on loop space},
  author={Peter Kristel and Konrad Waldorf},
  journal={arXiv: Operator Algebras},
The loop space of a string manifold supports an infinite-dimensional Fock space bundle, which is an analog of the spinor bundle on a spin manifold. This spinor bundle on loop space appears in the description of 2-dimensional sigma models as the bundle of states over the configuration space of the superstring. We construct a product on this bundle covering the fusion of loops, i.e., the merging of two loops along a common segment. For this purpose, we exhibit it as a bundle of bimodules over a…

The Clifford algebra bundle on loop space
We construct a Clifford algebra bundle formed from the tangent bundle of the smooth loop space of a Riemannian manifold, which is a bundle of super von Neumann algebras on the loop space. We show that
A representation of the string 2-group
We construct a representation of the string 2-group on a 2-vector space, namely on the hyperfinite type III1 von Neumann algebra. We prove that associating this representation to the frame bundle of


The Spinor Bundle on Loop Space and its Fusion product
Given a manifold with a string structure, we construct a spinor bundle on its loop space. Our construction is in analogy with the usual construction of a spinor bundle on a spin manifold, but
Spin structures on loop spaces that characterize string manifolds
Classically, a spin structure on the loop space of a manifold is a lift of the structure group of the looped frame bundle from the loop group to its universal central extension. Heuristically, the
A bundle gerbe construction of a spinor bundle from the smooth free loop of a vector bundle
A bundle gerbe is constructed from an oriented smooth vector bundle of even rank with a fiberwise inner product, over a compact connected orientable smooth manifold with Riemannian metric. From a
Twistor spaces and spinors over loop spaces
In this paper two natural twistor spaces over the loop space of a Riemannian manifold are constructed and their equivalence is shown in the Kählerian case. This relies on a detailed study of frame

Smooth Fock bundles, and spinor bundles on loop space
We address the construction of smooth bundles of fermionic Fock spaces, a problem that appears frequently in fermionic gauge theories. Our main motivation is the spinor bundle on the free loop space
Loop Spaces, Characteristic Classes and Geometric Quantization
This book deals with the differential geometry of manifolds, loop spaces, line bundles and groupoids, and the relations of this geometry to mathematical physics. Recent developments in mathematical
String connections and Chern-Simons theory
A finite-dimensional and smooth formulation of string structures on spin bundles that enables it to prove that every string structure admits a string connection and that the possible choices form an affine space is presented.
