Noncommutative geometry amounts to a program of unification of math­ ematics under the aegis of the quantum apparatus, i.e., the theory of ope­ rators and of C*-algebras.

The bible of the subject is, and will remain, Connes' Noncommuta- tive Geometry (), itself the "fold expansion" of the French Geome- trie non commutative (). "The present book is a systematic course in noncommutative differential geometry and operator theory, with applications to Elements of noncommutative geometry book physics.

Its topics cover C*-algebras, vector bundles and C*-modules, K-theory, Fredholm operators, Clifford algebras, Spin representations, noncommutative integration and differential calculus, spectral triples and Connes spin manifold theorem.

"Elements of Noncommutative Geometry" fills an important gap in the literature. Key features of the work include: * unified and comprehensive presentation of core topics and key research results drawing from several branches of mathematics.

[A] large number of metaphorical and mathematical remarks embedded in the text highlight the plethora of connections between the material of the book and other areas of. Our purpose and main concern in writing this book is to illuminate classical concepts from the noncommutative viewpoint, to make the language and techniques of noncommutative geometry accessible and familiar to practi- tioners of classical mathematics, and to benefit physicists interested in the uses of noncommutative spaces.

Same may say that ours is a very "com- mutative" way to deal. This unified introduction to the language and techniques of Noncommutative geometry is rich in proofs, examples, exercises and solutions.

The comprehensive presentation covers the core topics and key research results, and includes an excellent exposition of the introductory material.

Many singular spaces that emerge from advances in mathematics or are used by physicists to understand the natural world are thereby brought into the realm of geometry.\" \"This book is an introduction to the language and techniques of noncommutative geometry at a level suitable for graduate students, and also provides sufficient detail to be useful to physicists and mathematicians.

and basic idea of algebraic geometry. The purpose of this book is to extend this correspondence to the noncommutative case in the framework of real analysis. The theory, called noncommutative geometry, rests on two essential points: 1. The existence of many natural spaces for which the classical set-theoretic tools.

This book covers the basics of noncommutative geometry (NCG) and its applications in topology, algebraic geometry, and number theory. The author takes up the practical side of NCG and its value for other areas of mathematics.

A k-cycle is a triple (A,H,D) consisting of an algebra A, an Hilbert space H on which the elements of A are realized as linear operators, and a. This book has been on my shelf for several years.

It is more of a bible for noncommutative geometry written by its chief inventor than it is a math textbook. If you want the perspective and context that Alain Connes invented all of these crazy ideas in, this is the first place to go/5.

Though noncommutative geometry is designed to handle noncommutative algebras, nontrivial structures already arise on commutative algebras with non-standard differential calculi (see [3] and references given there). A commutative algebra of particular interest in this context is the algebra of functions on a finite (or discrete) set.

Noncommutative geometry (NCG) is a branch of mathematics concerned with a geometric approach to noncommutative algebras, and with the construction of spaces that are locally presented by noncommutative algebras of functions (possibly in some generalized sense). A noncommutative algebra is an associative algebra in which the multiplication is not commutative, that is, for which does.

The subject of noncommutative geometry has recently made its way into theoretical physics, and so a perusal of this book would be of interest to individuals working in string theory or quantum field theory.

The main idea of this book is to generalize measure and operator theory to non-commutative situations.4/5(9). The Metric Aspect of Noncommutative Geometry: Riemannian Manifolds and the Dirac Operator. Positivity in Hochschild Cohomology and the Inequalities for the Yang-Mills Action.

This authoritative volume in honor of Alain Connes, the foremost architect of Noncommutative Geometry, presents the state-of-the art in the subject. The book features an amalgam Available Formats: eBook Hardcover. This book provides a comprehensive account of a modern generalisation of differential geometry in which coordinates need not commute.

This requires a reinvention of differential geometry that refers only to the coordinate algebra, now possibly noncommutative, rather than to actual points.

Euclid is known to have assumed the commutative property of multiplication in his book Elements. Formal uses of the commutative property arose in the late 18th and early 19th centuries, when mathematicians began to work on a theory of functions.

Today the commutative property is a well-known and basic property used in most branches of mathematics. Handbook of Global Analysis. Book • Edited by: Demeter Krupka and David Saunders.

It is divided into two volumes. The first can serve as a textbook on the main techniques and results of quantum field theory, while the second treats more recent developments, in particular the subject of quantum groups and noncommutative geometry, and their interrelation.ment of the euclidean geometry is clearly shown; for example, it is shown that the whole of the euclidean geometry may be developed without the use of the axiom of continuity; the signifi-cance of Desargues’s theorem, as a condition that a given plane geometry may be regarded as a part of a geometry of space, is made apparent, etc.

5.In mathematics, noncommutative topology is a term used for the relationship between topological and C*-algebraic concepts. The term has its origins in the Gelfand–Naimark theorem, which implies the duality of the category of locally compact Hausdorff spaces and the category of commutative C*-algebras.

Noncommutative topology is related to analytic noncommutative geometry.
