The Dirac qmonopole connection is used to compute projector matrices of quantum Hopf line bundles for arbitrary winding number. The ChernConnes pairing of cyclic cohomology and Ktheory is computed for the winding number −1. The nontriviality of this pairing is used to conclude that the quantum principal Hopf fibration is noncleft. Among general results, we provide a leftright symmetric characterization of the canonical strong connections on quantum principal homogeneous spaces with an injective antipode. We also provide for arbitrary strong connections on algebraic quantum principal bundles (HopfGalois extensions) their associated covariant derivatives on projective modules.

We describe an intimate relationship between the noncommutative geometry associated with a lattice vertex operator algebra A and the noncommutative torus. We show that the tachyon subalgebra of A is naturally isomorphic to a class of twisted modules representing quantum deformations of the algebra of functions on the torus. We construct the corresponding even real spectral triples and determine their Morita equivalence classes using string duality arguments. These constructions yield simple proofs of the O(d, d; Z) Morita equivalences between ddimensional noncommutative tori and give a natural physical interpretation of them in terms of the target space duality group of toroidally compactified string theory. We classify the automorphisms of the twisted modules and construct the most general gauge theory which is invariant under the automorphism group. We compute bosonic and fermionic actions associated with these gauge theories and show that they are explicitly dualitysymmetric. The dualityinvariant gauge theory is manifestly covariant but contains highly nonlocal interactions. We show that it also admits a new sort of particleantiparticle duality which enables the construction of instanton field configurations in any dimension. The duality nonsymmetric onshell projection of the field theory is shown to coincide with the standard nonabelian YangMills gauge theory minimally coupled to massive Dirac fermion fields. 1

We dedicate this work to Yuri Manin, with admiration and gratitude In Arakelov theory a completion of an arithmetic surface is achieved by enlarging the group of divisors by formal linear combinations of the “closed fibers at infinity”. Manin described the dual graph of any such closed fiber in terms of an infinite tangle of bounded geodesics in a hyperbolic handlebody endowed with a Schottky uniformization. In this paper we consider arithmetic surfaces over the ring of integers in a number field, with fibers of genus g ≥ 2. We use Connes ’ theory of spectral triples to relate the hyperbolic geometry of the handlebody to Deninger’s Archimedean cohomology and the cohomology of the cone of the local monodromy N at arithmetic infinity as introduced by the first author of this paper. First, we consider derived (cohomological) spectral data (A, H · (X ∗),Φ), where the algebra is obtained from the SL(2, R) action on the cohomology of the cone, induced by the presence of a polarized Lefschetz module structure, and its restriction to the group ring of a Fuchsian Schottky group. In this setting we recover the alternating product of the Archimedean factors from a zeta function of a spectral triple. Then, we introduce a different construction, which is related to Manin’s description of the dual graph of the fiber at infinity. We

Monopoles and solitons have important topological aspects like quantized fluxes, winding numbers and curved target spaces. Naive discretizations which substitute a lattice of points for the underlying manifolds are incapable of retaining these features in a precise way. We study these problems of discrete physics and matrix models and discuss mathematically coherent discretizations of monopoles and solitons using fuzzy physics and noncommutative geometry. A fuzzy σmodel action for the twosphere fulfilling a fuzzy BelavinPolyakov bound is also put forth. 1 A fuzzy space ( [1–8]) is obtained by quantizing a manifold, treating it as a phase space. An example is the fuzzy twosphere S2 F. It is described by operators xi subject to the relations ∑ i x2i = 1 and [xi, xj] = (i / √ l(l + 1))ǫijkxk. Thus Li = √ l(l + 1)xi are (2l+1)dimensional angular momentum operators

Projections play crucial roles in the ADHM construction on noncommutative R 4. In this article a framework for the description of equivalence relations between projections is proposed. We treat the equivalence of projections as “gauge equivalence ” on noncommutative space. We find an interesting application of this framework to the study of U(2) instanton on noncommutative R 4: A zero winding number configuration with a hole at the origin is “gauge equivalent ” to the noncommutative analog of the BPST instanton. Thus the “gauge transformation ” in this case can be understood as a noncommutative The concept of smooth spacetime manifold should be modified at the Planck scale due to the quantum fluctuations, and we except the short scale structure of spacetime has noncommutative nature. When the coordinates of the space are noncommutative, we except the appearance of short scale cut off at the noncommutative scale. For example,

Abstract: We study marginal and relevant supersymmetric deformations of the N = 4 superYangMills theory in four dimensions. Our primary innovation is the interpretation of the moduli spaces of vacua of these theories as noncommutative spaces. The construction of these spaces relies on the representation theory of the related quantum algebras, which are obtained from Fterm constraints. These field theories are dual to superstring theories propagating on deformations of the AdS5×S 5 geometry. We study Dbranes propagating in these vacua and introduce the appropriate notion of algebraic geometry for noncommutative spaces. The resulting moduli spaces of Dbranes have several novel features. In particular, they may be interpreted as symmetric products of noncommutative spaces. We show how mirror symmetry between these deformed geometries and orbifold theories follows from Tduality. Many features of the dual closed string theory may be identified within the noncommutative algebra. In particular, we make progress towards understanding the Ktheory necessary for backgrounds where the NeveuSchwarz antisymmetric tensor of the string is turned on, and we shed light on some aspects of discrete

We discuss the effects that a noncommutative geometry induced by a Drinfeld twist has on physical theories. We systematically deform all products and symmetries of the theory. We discuss noncommutative classical mechanics, in particular its deformed Poisson bracket and hence time evolution and symmetries. The twisting is then extended to classical fields, and then to the main interest of this work: quantum fields. This leads to a geometric formulation of quantization on noncommutative spacetime, i.e. we establish a noncommutative correspondence principle from?Poisson brackets to?commutators. In particular commutation relations among creation and annihilation operators are deduced.

We introduce the notion of a semiRiemannian spectral triple which generalizes the notion of spectral triple and allows for a treatment of semiRiemannian manifolds within a noncommutative setting. It turns out that the relevant spaces in noncommutative semiRiemannian geometry are not Hilbert spaces any more but Krein spaces, and Dirac operators are Kreinselfadjoint. We show that the noncommutative tori can be endowed with a semiRiemannian structure in this way. For the noncommutative tori as well as for semiRiemannian spin manifolds the dimension, the signature of the metric, and the integral of a function can be recovered from the spectral data.
