D-branes and twisted K-homology I
Speaker: Paul Baum, Penn State
Abstract: K-homology is the dual theory to K-theory. This talk will first review ordinary (i.e. not twisted) K-homologyand will then introduce twisted K-homology via a definition which uses functional analysis a la Kasparov. How can twisted K-homology be defined geometrically? The talk will conclude with the Baum-Carey-Wang geometric definition of twisted K-homology and how this relates to the Kasparov definition and to the D-branes of string theory.
