The recent work of Larry Brown, R. G. Douglas, and Peter Fillmore (referred to as BDF) [2], [3], and [4] on operator algebras has created a new bridge between functional analysis and algebraic topology. This note and a subsequent paper [5] constitute an effort to make that bridge more concrete. We first briefly describe the BDF framework. This requires the following C*-algebras: C(X), the continuous complex-valued functions on a compact metric space X; L, the bounded operators on an infinite… CONTINUE READING
