On the differential Grothendieck-Riemann-Roch theorems
MetadataShow full item record
We investigate aspects of differential K-theory. In particular, we give a direct proof that the Freed-Lott differential analytic index is well defined, and a short proof of the differential Grothendieck-Riemann-Roch theorem in the setting of Freed-Lott differential K-theory. We also construct explicit ring isomorphisms between Freed-Lott differential K-theory and Simons-Sullivan differential K-theory, define the Simons-Sullivan differential analytic index, and prove the differential Grothendieck-Riemann-Roch theorem in the setting of Simons-Sullivan differential K-theory.
