Abstract. We propose uncertainty relations for the different coordinates of spacetime events, motivated by Heisenberg’s principle and by Einstein’s theory of classical gravity. A model of Quantum Spacetime is then discussed where the commutation relations exactly implement our uncertainty relations. We outline the definition of free fields and interactions over QST and take the first steps to adapting the usual perturbation theory. The quantum nature of the underlying spacetime replaces a local interaction by a specific nonlocal effective interaction in the ordinary Minkowski space. A detailed study of interacting QFT and of the smoothing of ultraviolet divergences is deferred to a subsequent paper. In the classical limit where the Planck length goes to zero, our Quantum Spacetime reduces to the ordinary Minkowski space times a two component space whose components are homeomorphic to the tangent bundle TS 2 of the 2–sphere. The relations with Connes’ theory of the standard model will be studied elsewhere. 1.

Twisted Ktheory of differentiable stacks

, 2004
"... In this paper, we develop twisted Ktheory for stacks, where the twisted class is given by an S 1gerbe over the stack. General properties, including the Mayer–Vietoris property, Bott periodicity, and the product structure K i α ⊗K j β → Ki+j α+β are derived. Our approach provides a uniform framew ..."

In this paper, we develop twisted Ktheory for stacks, where the twisted class is given by an S 1gerbe over the stack. General properties, including the Mayer–Vietoris property, Bott periodicity, and the product structure K i α ⊗K j β → Ki+j α+β are derived. Our approach provides a uniform framework for studying various twisted Ktheories including the usual twisted Ktheory of topological spaces, twisted equivariant Ktheory, and the twisted Ktheory of orbifolds. We also present a Fredholm picture, and discuss the conditions under which twisted Kgroups can be expressed by socalled “twisted vector bundles”. Our approach is to work on presentations of stacks, namely groupoids, and relies heavily on the machinery of Ktheory (KKtheory) of C ∗algebras.

Abstract. We establish what we consider to be the definitive versions of Jensen’s operator inequality and Jensen’s trace inequality for real functions defined on an interval. This is accomplished by the introduction of genuine noncommutative convex combinations of operators, as opposed to the contractions considered in earlier versions of the theory, [9] & [3]. As a consequence, we no longer need to impose conditions on the interval of definition. We show how this relates to the pinching inequality of Davis [4], and how Jensen’s trace inequality generalizes to C ∗ −algebras. 1.

Abstract. Imprimitivity theorems provide a fundamental tool for studying the representation theory and structure of crossedproduct C ∗algebras. In this work, we show that the Imprimitivity Theorem for induced algebras, Green’s Imprimitivity Theorem for actions of groups, and Mansfield’s Imprimitivity Theorem for coactions of groups can all be viewed as natural equivalences between various crossedproduct functors among certain equivariant categories. The categories involved have C ∗algebras with actions or coactions (or both) of a fixed locally compact group G as their objects, and equivariant equivalence classes of rightHilbert bimodules as their morphisms. Composition is given by the balanced tensor product of bimodules. The functors involved arise from taking crossed products; restricting, inflating, and decomposing actions and coactions; inducing actions; and various combinations of these. Several applications of this categorical approach are also presented, including some intriguing relationships between the Green and Mansfield bimodules, and between restriction and induction
