  author={Constantin Dorin Dumitracscu},
We construct a new bivariant theory, that we call $KE$-theory, which is intermediate between the $KK$-theory of G. G. Kasparov, and the $E$-theory of A. Connes and N. Higson. For each pair of separable graded $C^*$-algebras $A$ and $B$, acted upon by a locally compact $\sigma$-compact group $G$, we define an abelian group $KE_G(A,B)$. We show that there is an associative product $KE_G(A,D) \otimes KE_G(D,B) \to KE_G(A,B)$. Various functoriality properties of the $KE$-theory groups and of the…
