Noncommutative Geometry and Cyclic Cohomology

Bivariant cyclic (co)homology and pairings in Hopf-type cyclic (co)homology with coefficients

Author: Georgy Sharygin (ITEP, Moscow, Russia)


In the recent years there appeared a number of papers, generalising the Connes-Moscovici's construction of cyclic cohomology of Hopf algebras. It turned out that in this case it is possible to introduce certain coefficients module in the cyclic cohomology (see, e.g. [1]). In the present talk (poster presentation) we investigate further this construction: we show how the X-complex formalism of Cuntz and Quillen (see [2]) can be extended to embrace the coefficients, and use this result to introduce the bivariant cyclic theory with coefficients. It turns out that the composition product in bivariant theory can be used to introduce the pairing between cohomology of an algebra and a coalgebra. We show, that this construction is a generalisation of Crainic's pairing ([3]) and that under certain conditions on the coalgebra it coincides with the pairing, introduced by Khalkhali and Rangipour ([4]). This talk is partly based on the paper [5] of Igor Nikonov and G.Sh..
