Lorentzian geometry and physics in Kasparov's theory

Van Den Dungen, Koen

Description

We study two geometric themes, Lorentzian geometry and gauge theory, from the perspective of Connes’ noncommutative geometry and (the unbounded version of) Kasparov’s KK-theory. Lorentzian geometry is the mathematical framework underlying Einstein’s description of gravity. The geometric formulation of a gauge theory (in terms of principal bundles) offers a classical description for the interactions between particles. The underlying motivation is the hope that this noncommutative approach...[Show more]
