Real cohomology and the powers of the fundamental ideal in the Witt ring
https://projecteuclid.org/euclid.akt/1508431895
<strong>Jeremy Jacobson</strong>. <p><strong>Source: </strong>Annals of K-Theory, Volume 2, Number 3, 357--385.</p><p><strong>Abstract:</strong><br/> Let [math] be a local ring in which 2 is invertible. It is known that the localization of the cohomology ring [math] with respect to the class [math] is isomorphic to the ring [math] of continuous [math] -valued functions on the real spectrum of [math] . Let [math] denote the powers of the fundamental ideal in the Witt ring of symmetric bilinear forms over [math] . The starting point of this article is the “integral” version: the localization of the graded ring [math] with respect to the class [math] is isomorphic to the ring [math] of continuous [math] -valued functions on the real spectrum of [math] . This has interesting applications to schemes. For instance, for any algebraic variety [math] over the field of real numbers [math] and any integer [math] strictly greater than the Krull dimension of [math] , we obtain a bijection between the Zariski cohomology groups [math] with coefficients in the sheaf [math] associated to the [math] -th power of the fundamental ideal in the Witt ring [math] and the singular cohomology groups [math] . </p>projecteuclid.org/euclid.akt/1508431895_20171019125136Thu, 19 Oct 2017 12:51 EDTColocalising subcategories of modules over finite group schemes

The Hom closed colocalising subcategories of the stable module category of a finite group scheme are classified. This complements the classification of the tensor closed localising subcategories in our previous work. Both classifications involve [math] -points in the sense of Friedlander and Pevtsova. We identify for each [math] -point an endofinite module which both generates the corresponding minimal localising subcategory and cogenerates the corresponding minimal colocalising subcategory.

<strong>Tom Harris</strong>, <strong>Bernhard Köck</strong>, <strong>Lenny Taelman</strong>. <p><strong>Source: </strong>Annals of K-Theory, Volume 2, Number 3, 409--450.</p><p><strong>Abstract:</strong><br/>
We use Grayson’s binary multicomplex presentation of algebraic [math] -theory to give a new construction of exterior power operations on the higher [math] -groups of a (quasicompact) scheme. We show that these operations satisfy the axioms of a [math] -ring, including the product and composition laws. To prove the latter we show that the Grothendieck group of the exact category of integral polynomial functors is the universal [math] -ring on one generator.

C. Weibel, and Thomason and Trobaugh, proved (under some assumptions) that algebraic [math] -theory with coefficients is [math] -homotopy invariant. We generalize this result from schemes to the broad setting of dg categories. Along the way, we extend the Bass–Quillen fundamental theorem as well as Stienstra’s foundational work on module structures over the big Witt ring to the setting of dg categories. Among other cases, the above [math] -homotopy invariance result can now be applied to sheaves of (not necessarily commutative) dg algebras over stacks. As an application, we compute the algebraic [math] -theory with coefficients of dg cluster categories using solely the kernel and cokernel of the Coxeter matrix. This leads to a complete computation of the algebraic [math] -theory with coefficients of the du Val singularities parametrized by the simply laced Dynkin diagrams. As a byproduct, we obtain vanishing and divisibility properties of algebraic [math] -theory (without coefficients).

We associate to a full flag [math] in an [math] -dimensional variety [math] over a field [math] , a “symbol map” [math] . Here, [math] is the field of rational functions on [math] , and [math] is the [math] -theory spectrum. We prove a “reciprocity law” for these symbols: given a partial flag, the sum of all symbols of full flags refining it is [math] . Examining this result on the level of [math] -groups, we derive the following known reciprocity laws: the degree of a principal divisor is zero, the Weil reciprocity law, the residue theorem, the Contou-Carrère reciprocity law (when [math] is a smooth complete curve), as well as the Parshin reciprocity law and the higher residue reciprocity law (when [math] is higher-dimensional).

Let [math] be an odd prime number. We show that there exists a finite group of order [math] for which the mod [math] cycle map from the mod [math] Chow ring of its classifying space to its ordinary mod [math] cohomology is not injective.

In a previous paper we constructed a class of exotic products called inertial products on [math] , the Grothendieck group of vector bundles on the inertia stack [math] . In this paper we develop a theory of Chern classes and compatible power operations for inertial products. When [math] is diagonalizable these give rise to an augmented [math] -ring structure on inertial K-theory. One well-known inertial product is the virtual product . Our results show that for toric Deligne–Mumford stacks there is a [math] -ring structure on inertial K-theory. As an example, we compute the [math] -ring structure on the virtual K-theory of the weighted projective lines [math] and [math] . We prove that, after tensoring with [math] , the augmentation completion of this [math] -ring is isomorphic as a [math] -ring to the classical K-theory of the crepant resolutions of singularities of the coarse moduli spaces of the cotangent bundles [math] and [math] , respectively. We interpret this as a manifestation of mirror symmetry in the spirit of the hyper-Kähler resolution conjecture. </p>projecteuclid.org/euclid.akt/1510841626_20171116091348Thu, 16 Nov 2017 09:13 ESTOn the vanishing of Hochster's $\theta$ invarianthttps://projecteuclid.org/euclid.akt/1510841640<strong>Mark Walker</strong>. <p><strong>Source: </strong>Annals of K-Theory, Volume 2, Number 2, 131--174.</p><p><strong>Abstract:</strong><br/> Hochster’s theta invariant is defined for a pair of finitely generated modules on a hypersurface ring having only an isolated singularity. Up to a sign, it agrees with the Euler invariant of a pair of matrix factorizations. Working over the complex numbers, Buchweitz and van Straten have established an interesting connection between Hochster’s theta invariant and the classical linking form on the link of the singularity. In particular, they establish the vanishing of the theta invariant if the hypersurface is even-dimensional by exploiting the fact that the (reduced) cohomology of the Milnor fiber is concentrated in odd degrees in this situation. We give purely algebraic versions of some of these results. In particular, we establish the vanishing of the theta invariant for isolated hypersurface singularities of even dimension in characteristic [math] under some mild extra assumptions. This confirms, in a large number of cases, a conjecture of Hailong Dao. </p>projecteuclid.org/euclid.akt/1510841640_20171116091402Thu, 16 Nov 2017 09:14 ESTLow-dimensional Milnor–Witt stems over $\mathbb R$https://projecteuclid.org/euclid.akt/1510841641<strong>Daniel Dugger</strong>, <strong>Daniel Isaksen</strong>. <p><strong>Source: </strong>Annals of K-Theory, Volume 2, Number 2, 175--210.</p><p><strong>Abstract:</strong><br/>
We compute some motivic stable homotopy groups over [math] . For [math] , we describe the motivic stable homotopy groups [math] of a completion of the motivic sphere spectrum. These are the first four Milnor–Witt stems. We start with the known [math] groups over [math] and apply the [math] -Bockstein spectral sequence to obtain [math] groups over [math] . This is the input to an Adams spectral sequence, which collapses in our low-dimensional range.

We describe an arithmetic [math] -valued invariant for longitudes of a link [math] , obtained from an [math] representation of the link group. Furthermore, we show a nontriviality on the elements, and compute the elements for some links. As an application, we develop a method for computing longitudes in [math] representations for link groups, where [math] is the universal covering group of [math] .

We show that every [math] -equivariant vector bundle on an affine toric scheme over [math] with [math] -action is equivariantly extended from [math] for several cases of [math] and [math] . We show that, given two affine schemes with group scheme actions, an equivalence of the equivariant derived categories implies isomorphism of the equivariant [math] -theories as well as equivariant [math] -theories. </p>projecteuclid.org/euclid.akt/1510841643_20171116091402Thu, 16 Nov 2017 09:14 ESTMotivic complexes over nonperfect fieldshttps://projecteuclid.org/euclid.akt/1510841644<strong>Andrei Suslin</strong>. <p><strong>Source: </strong>Annals of K-Theory, Volume 2, Number 2, 277--302.</p><p><strong>Abstract:</strong><br/>
We show that the theory of motivic complexes developed by Voevodsky over perfect fields works over nonperfect fields as well provided that we work with sheaves with transfers of [math] -modules ( [math] ). In particular we show that every homotopy invariant sheaf with transfers of [math] -modules is strictly homotopy invariant.

We define a [math] -theory for pointed right derivators and show that it agrees with Waldhausen [math] -theory in the case where the derivator arises from a good Waldhausen category. This [math] -theory is not invariant under general equivalences of derivators, but only under a stronger notion of equivalence that is defined by considering a simplicial enrichment of the category of derivators. We show that derivator [math] -theory, as originally defined, is the best approximation to Waldhausen [math] -theory by a functor that is invariant under equivalences of derivators.

We classify the split simple affine algebraic groups [math] of types A and C over a field with the property that the Chow group of the quotient variety [math] is torsion-free, where [math] is a special parabolic subgroup (e.g., a Borel subgroup) and [math] is a generic [math] -torsor (over a field extension of the base field). Examples of [math] include the adjoint groups of type A. Examples of [math] include the Severi–Brauer varieties of generic central simple algebras.

We study the combinatorics of a subcomplex of the Bloch–Kriz cycle complex that was used to construct the category of mixed Tate motives. The algebraic cycles we consider properly contain the subalgebra of cycles that correspond to multiple logarithms (as defined by Gangl, Goncharov and Levin). We associate an algebra of graphs to our subalgebra of algebraic cycles. We give a purely combinatorial criterion for admissibility. We show that sums of bivalent graphs correspond to coboundary elements of the algebraic cycle complex. Finally, we compute the Hodge realization for an infinite family of algebraic cycles represented by sums of graphs that are not describable in the combinatorial language of Gangl et al.

The algebras of stable operations and cooperations in derived Witt theory with rational coefficients are computed and an additive description of cooperations in derived Witt theory is given. The answer is parallel to the well-known case of K-theory of real vector bundles in topology. In particular, we show that stable operations in derived Witt theory with rational coefficients are given by the values on the powers of the Bott element.

We study the duplicial objects of Dwyer and Kan, which generalize the cyclic objects of Connes. We describe duplicial objects in terms of the decalage comonads, and we give a conceptual account of the construction of duplicial objects due to Böhm and Ştefan. This is done in terms of a 2-categorical generalization of Hochschild homology. We also study duplicial structure on nerves of categories, bicategories, and monoidal categories.

Let [math] be the [math] -group of square matrices over [math] which are not necessarily invertible but induce weak isomorphisms after passing to Hilbert space completions. Let [math] be the division closure of [math] in the algebra [math] of operators affiliated to the group von Neumann algebra. Let [math] be the smallest class of groups which contains all free groups and is closed under directed unions and extensions with elementary amenable quotients. Let [math] be a torsionfree group which belongs to [math] . Then we prove that [math] is isomorphic to [math] . Furthermore we show that [math] is a skew field and hence [math] is the abelianization of the multiplicative group of units in [math] .

The moving lemma of Suslin (also known as the generic equidimensionality theorem) states that a cycle on [math] meeting all faces properly can be moved so that it becomes equidimensional over [math] . This leads to an isomorphism of motivic Borel–Moore homology and higher Chow groups.
In this short paper we formulate and prove a variant of this. It leads to a modulus version of the isomorphism, in an appropriate pro setting.

We generalize the construction of reflection functors from classical representation theory of quivers to arbitrary small categories with freely attached sinks or sources. These reflection morphisms are shown to induce equivalences between the corresponding representation theories with values in arbitrary stable homotopy theories, including representations over fields, rings or schemes as well as differential-graded and spectral representations.
Specializing to representations over a field and to specific shapes, this recovers derived equivalences of Happel for finite, acyclic quivers. However, even over a field our main result leads to new derived equivalences, for example, for not necessarily finite or acyclic quivers.
Our results rely on a careful analysis of the compatibility of gluing constructions for small categories with homotopy Kan extensions and homotopical epimorphisms, and on a study of the combinatorics of amalgamations of categories.

Given a finite group [math] , we develop a theory of [math] -equivariant noncommutative motives. This theory provides a well-adapted framework for the study of [math] -schemes, Picard groups of schemes, [math] -algebras, [math] -cocycles, [math] -equivariant algebraic [math] -theory, etc. Among other results, we relate our theory with its commutative counterpart as well as with Panin’s theory. As a first application, we extend Panin’s computations, concerning twisted projective homogeneous varieties, to a large class of invariants. As a second application, we prove that whenever the category of perfect complexes of a [math] -scheme [math] admits a full exceptional collection of [math] -invariant ( [math] -equivariant) objects, the [math] -equivariant Chow motive of [math] is of Lefschetz type. Finally, we construct a [math] -equivariant motivic measure with values in the Grothendieck ring of [math] -equivariant noncommutative Chow motives.

In this paper we apply algebraic [math] -theory techniques to construct a Fuglede–Kadison type determinant for a semifinite von Neumann algebra equipped with a fixed trace. Our construction is based on the approach to determinants for Banach algebras developed by Skandalis and de la Harpe. This approach can be extended to the semifinite case since the first topological [math] -group of the trace ideal in a semifinite von Neumann algebra is trivial. Along the way we also improve the methods of Skandalis and de la Harpe by considering relative [math] -groups with respect to an ideal instead of the usual absolute [math] -groups. Our construction recovers the determinant homomorphism introduced by Brown, but all the relevant algebraic properties are automatic due to the algebraic [math] -theory framework.

We prove some fundamental results like localization, excision, Nisnevich descent, and the regular blow-up formula for the algebraic [math] -theory of certain stack quotients of schemes with affine group scheme actions.

We generalise the Atiyah–Segal–Singer fixed point theorem to noncompact manifolds. Using [math] -theory, we extend the equivariant index to the noncompact setting, and obtain a fixed point formula for it. The fixed point formula is the explicit cohomological expression from Atiyah–Segal–Singer’s result. In the noncompact case, however, we show in examples that this expression yields characters of infinite-dimensional representations. In one example, we realise characters of discrete series representations on the regular elements of a maximal torus, in terms of the index we define. Further results are a fixed point formula for the index pairing between equivariant [math] -theory and [math] -homology, and a nonlocalised expression for the index we use, in terms of deformations of principal symbols. The latter result is one of several links we find to indices of deformed symbols and operators studied by various authors.

We find conditions such that cup products induce isomorphisms in low degrees for extensions between stable polynomial representations of the general linear group. We apply this result to prove generalizations and variants of the Steinberg tensor product theorem. Our connectedness bounds for cup product maps depend on numerical invariants which seem also relevant to other problems, such as the cohomological behavior of the Schur functor.

We show that [math] -localization decreases the stable connectivity by at most one over a Dedekind scheme with infinite residue fields. For the proof, we establish a version of Gabber’s geometric presentation lemma over a henselian discrete valuation ring with infinite residue field.

We study the condition on a field that any triple of (bilinear) Pfister forms of a given dimension are linked. This is a strengthening of the condition of linkage investigated by Elman and Lam, which asks the same for pairs of Pfister forms. In characteristic different from two this condition for triples of [math] -fold Pfister forms is related to the Hasse number.

Using recent developments in the theory of mixed motives, we prove that the log Bloch conjecture holds for an open smooth complex surface if the Bloch conjecture holds for its compactification. This verifies the log Bloch conjecture for all [math] -homology planes and for open smooth surfaces which are not of log general type.

Let [math] be an affine Hecke algebra with a positive parameter function [math] . We are interested in the topological K-theory of its [math] -completion [math] . We prove that [math] does not depend on the parameter [math] , solving a long-standing conjecture of Higson and Plymen. For this we use representation-theoretic methods, in particular elliptic representations of Weyl groups and Hecke algebras.
Thus, for the computation of these K-groups it suffices to work out the case [math] . These algebras are considerably simpler than for [math] , just crossed products of commutative algebras with finite Weyl groups. We explicitly determine [math] for all classical root data [math] . This will be useful for analyzing the K-theory of the reduced [math] -algebra of any classical [math] -adic group.
For the computations in the case [math] , we study the more general situation of a finite group [math] acting on a smooth manifold [math] . We develop a method to calculate the K-theory of the crossed product [math] . In contrast to the equivariant Chern character of Baum and Connes, our method can also detect torsion elements in these K-groups.

Given a lisse [math] -adic sheaf [math] on a smooth proper variety [math] and a lisse sheaf [math] on an open dense [math] in [math] , Kato and Saito conjectured a localization formula for the global [math] -adic epsilon factor [math] in terms of the global epsilon factor of [math] and a certain intersection number associated to [math] and the Swan class of [math] . In this article, we prove an analog of this conjecture for global de Rham epsilon factors in the classical setting of [math] -modules on smooth projective varieties over a field of characteristic zero.

In this paper we construct an equivariant Poincaré duality between dual tori equipped with finite group actions. We use this to demonstrate that Langlands duality induces a rational isomorphism between the group [math] -algebras of extended affine Weyl groups at the level of [math] -theory.

For every connected manifold with corners there is a homology theory called conormal homology, defined in terms of faces and orientation of their conormal bundle and whose cycles correspond geometrically to corner cycles. Its Euler characteristic (over the rationals, dimension of the total even space minus the dimension of the total odd space), [math] , is given by the alternating sum of the number of (open) faces of a given codimension.
The main result of the present paper is that for a compact connected manifold with corners [math] , given as a finite product of manifolds with corners of codimension less or equal to three, we have that:
1) If [math] satisfies the Fredholm perturbation property (every elliptic pseudodifferential b-operator on [math] can be perturbed by a b-regularizing operator so it becomes Fredholm) then the even Euler corner character of [math] vanishes, i.e., [math] .
2) If the even periodic conormal homology group vanishes, i.e., [math] , then [math] satisfies the stably homotopic Fredholm perturbation property (i.e., every elliptic pseudodifferential b-operator on [math] satisfies the same named property up to stable homotopy among elliptic operators).
3) If [math] is torsion free and if the even Euler corner character of [math] vanishes, i.e., [math] , then [math] satisfies the stably homotopic Fredholm perturbation property. For example, for every finite product of manifolds with corners of codimension at most two the conormal homology groups are torsion free.
The main theorem behind the above result is the explicit computation in terms of conormal homology of the K-theory groups of the algebra [math] of b-compact operators for [math] as above. Our computation unifies the known cases of codimension zero (smooth manifolds) and of codimension one (smooth manifolds with boundary).

Let [math] be a discrete group. Assuming rational injectivity of the Baum–Connes assembly map, we provide new lower bounds on the rank of the positive scalar curvature bordism group and the relative group in Stolz’ positive scalar curvature sequence for [math] . The lower bounds are formulated in terms of the part of degree up to [math] in the group homology of [math] with coefficients in the [math] -module generated by finite order elements. Our results use and extend work of Botvinnik and Gilkey which treated the case of finite groups. Further crucial ingredients are a real counterpart to the delocalized equivariant Chern character and Matthey’s work on explicitly inverting this Chern character in low homological degrees.
