The insidious bicategory of algebra bundles

  title={The insidious bicategory of algebra bundles},
  author={Peter Kristel and Matthias Ludewig and Konrad Waldorf},
In this paper we construct a bicategory of (super) algebra bundles over a smooth manifold, where the 1-morphisms are bundles of bimodules. The main point is that naive definitions of bimodule bundles will not lead to a well-defined composition law in such a bicategory, at least not if non-invertible bimodules and non-semisimple algebras are desired. This problem has not been addressed so far in the literature. We develop a complete solution, and also address symmetric monoidal structures as well…

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

On the cohomology groups of an associative algebra
The cohomology theory of associative algebras is concerned with the m-linear mappings of an algebra W into a two-sided W-module A. In this theory, the additive group (2(m):$) of the m-linear mappings
A künneth formula for the cyclic cohomology of ℤ/2-graded algebras
We define here Hochschild and cyclic (co)homology groups for Z/2-graded algebras. A definition of cyclic cohomology of such algebras over the complex numbers has already be given by Kastler [13-1 who
Morita Bicategories of Algebras and Duality Involutions
The notion of a weak duality involution on a bicategory was recently introduced by Shulman in [arXiv:1606.05058]. We construct a weak duality involution on the fully dualisable part of $\text{Alg}$,
