abstract = {Abstract We give an overview of the applications of noncommutative geometry to physics. Our focus is entirely on the conceptual ideas, rather than on the underlying technicalities. Starting historically from the Heisenberg relations, we will explain how in general noncommutativity yields a canonical time evolution, while at the same time allowing for the coexistence of discrete and continuous variables. The spectral approach to geometry is then explained to encompass two natural ingredients: the line element and the algebra. The relation between these two is dictated by so-called higher Heisenberg relations, from which both spin geometry and non-abelian gauge theory emerges. Our exposition indicates some of the applications in physics, including Pati-Salam unification beyond the Standard Model, the criticality of dimension 4 , second quantization and entropy.},

This result relies on the introduction of three key concepts: the cohomologies (attached to a divisor), their integer dimension, and Serre duality. These notions directly extend their classical counterparts for function fields. The Riemann-Roch formula equates the (integer valued) Euler characteristic of a divisor with a slight modification of the traditional expression in terms of the sum of the degree of the divisor and the logarithm of 2 . Both the definitions of the cohomologies and of their dimensions rely on a universal arithmetic theory over the sphere spectrum that we had previously introduced using Segal's Gamma rings. By adopting this new perspective we can parallel Weil's adelic proof of the Riemann-Roch formula for function fields including the use of Pontryagin duality.},

Finally, we introduce the pericyclic category which unifies and refines two conflicting notions of epicyclic space existing in the literature.},

In this way we attain a conceptual meaning of the BC dynamical system at the most basic algebraic level. Furthermore, we define an invariant of Schwartz kernels in 1 dimension and relate the Fourier transform (in 1 dimension) to its role over the algebraic closure of S. We implement this invariant to prove that, when applied to the quantized differential of a function, it provides its Schwarzian derivative. Finally, we survey the roles of the quantized calculus in relation to Weil's positivity, and that of spectral triples in relation to the zeros of the Riemann zeta function.},

For these so-called tolerance relations, passing to the associated equivalence relation looses crucial information as is clear from the examples such as coarse graining in physics or the relation d(x,y)<ε on a metric space. Fortunately, thanks to the formalism of operator systems such an extension is possible and provides new invariants, such as the C*-envelope and the propagation number. After a thorough investigation of the structure of the (non-unital) operator systems associated to tolerance relations, we analyze the corresponding state spaces. In particular, we determine the pure state space associated to the operator system for the relation d(x,y)<ε on a path metric measure space.},

The off diagonal part u21 of the matrix of the multiplication by u in the orthogonal decomposition of the Hilbert space L2 of square integrable functions on the critical line into the Hardy space H2 and its orthogonal complement is a compact operator. When interpreted on the unit disk, the quasi-inner condition means that the associated Haenkel matrix is compact. We show that none of the individual non-archimedean ratios ρv is quasi-inner and, in order to prove our main result we use Gauss multiplication theorem to factor the archimedean ratio ρ∞ into a product of m quasi-inner functions whose product with each ρv retains the property to be quasi-inner. Finally we prove that Sonin's space is simply the kernel of the diagonal part u22 for the quasi-inner function u=ρ∞, and when u(F)=∏v∈Fρv the kernels of the u(F)22 form an inductive system of infinite dimensional spaces which are the semi-local analogues of (classical) Sonin's spaces.},

abstract = {In this paper we extend the traditional framework of noncommutative geometry in order to deal with spectral truncations of geometric spaces (i.e. imposing an ultraviolet cutoff in momentum space) and with tolerance relations which provide a coarse grain approximation of geometric spaces at a finite resolution. In our new approach the traditional role played by C∗-algebras is taken over by operator systems. As part of the techniques we treat C∗-envelopes, dual operator systems and stable equivalence. We define a propagation number for operator systems, which we show to be an invariant under stable equivalence and use to compare approximations of the same space. We illustrate our methods for concrete examples obtained by spectral truncations of the circle. These are operator systems of finite-dimensional Toeplitz matrices and their dual operator systems which are given by functions in the group algebra on the integers with support in a fixed interval. It turns out that the cones of positive elements and the pure state spaces for these operator systems possess a very rich structure which we analyze including for the algebraic geometry of the boundary of the positive cone and the metric aspect i.e. the distance on the state space associated to the Dirac operator. The main property of the spectral truncation is that it keeps the isometry group intact. In contrast, if one considers the other finite approximation provided by circulant matrices the isometry group becomes discrete, even though in this case the operator system is a C∗-algebra. We analyze this in the context of the finite Fourier transform. The extension of noncommutative geometry to operator systems allows one to deal with metric spaces up to finite resolution by considering the relation d(x,y)<ε between two points, or more generally a tolerance relation which naturally gives rise to an operator system.},

Cette géométrie est dite "commutative" : le produit de deux quantités ne dépend pas de l'ordre des termes, et A × B = B × A. Cette propriété est fondamentale, l'ensemble de l'édifice mathématique en dépend.

Mais au début du XXe siècle, la découverte du monde quantique vient tout bouleverser.

Mais au début du XXe siècle, la découverte du monde quantique vient tout bouleverser. L'espace géométrique des états d'un système microscopique, un atome par exemple, s'enrichit de nouvelles propriétés, qui ne commutent plus. Il faut donc adapter l'ensemble des outils mathématiques. Cette nouvelle géométrie, dite "non commutative", devenue essentielle à la recherche en physique, a été développée par Alain Connes.

abstract = {We consider the Laplacian associated with a general metric in the canonical conformal structure of the noncommutative two torus, and calculate a local expression for the term a4 that appears in its corresponding small-time heat kernel expansion. The final formula involves one variable functions and lengthy two, three and four variable functions of the modular automorphism of the state that encodes the conformal perturbation of the flat metric. We confirm the validity of the calculated expressions by showing that they satisfy a family of conceptually predicted functional relations. By studying these functional rela- tions abstractly, we derive a partial differential system which involves a natural action of cyclic groups of order two, three and four and a flow in parameter space. We discover symmetries of the calculated expressions with respect to the action of the cyclic groups. In passing, we show that the main ingredients of our calculations, which come from a rearrangement lemma and relations between the derivatives up to order four of the conformal factor and those of its logarithm, can be derived by finite differences from the generating function of the Bernoulli numbers and its multiplicative inverse. We then shed light on the significance of exponential polynomials and their smooth fractions in understanding the gen- eral structure of the noncommutative geometric invariants appearing in the heat kernel expansion. As an application of our results we obtain the a4 term for non- commutative four tori which split as products of two tori. These four tori are not conformally flat and the a4 term gives a first hint of the Riemann curvature and the higher dimensional modular structure.},

In the analogy with the development of homological algebra for abelian categories the present paper should be viewed as the analogue of the development of homological algebra for abelian groups. Our selected prototype, the category Bmod of modules over the Boolean semifield B := {0, 1} is the replacement for the category of abelian groups. We show that the semi-additive category Bmod fulfills analogues of the axioms AB1 and AB2 for abelian categories. By introducing a precise comonad on Bmod we obtain the conceptually related Kleisli and Eilenberg-Moore categories. The latter category Bmods is simply Bmod in the topos of sets endowed with an involution and as such it shares with Bmod most of its abstract categorical properties. The three main results of the paper are the following. First, when endowed with the natural ideal of null morphisms, the category Bmods is a semi-exact, homological category in the sense of M. Grandis. Second, there is a far reaching analogy between Bmods and the category of operators in Hilbert space, and in particular results relating null kernel and injectivity for morphisms. The third fundamental result is that, even for finite objects of Bmods the resulting homological algebra is non-trivial and gives rise to a computable Ext functor. We determine explicitly this functor in the case provided by the diagonal morphism of the Boolean semiring into its square.},

It manifests itself in particular by the values of the coefficients c(d) by which it multiplies the d dimensional terms in the heat expansion of the spectral triple.

On Cp, we develop the theory of Cartier divisors, determine the structure of the quotient Div(Cp)/P of the abelian group of divisors by the subgroup of principal divisors, develop the theory of theta functions, and prove the Riemann-Roch formula which involves real valued dimensions, as in the type II index theory.

The first strategy is “analytic" and is based on Riemannian spaces and Selberg’s work on the trace formula and its comparison with the explicit formulas. The second is based on algebraic geometry and the Riemann-Roch theorem. We establish a framework in which one can transpose many of the ingredients of the Weil proof as reformulated by Mattuck, Tate and Grothendieck. This framework is elaborate and involves noncommutative geometry, Grothendieck toposes and tropical geometry. We point out the remaining difficulties and show that RH gives a strong moti- vation to develop algebraic geometry in the emerging world of characteristic one. Finally we briefly discuss a third strategy based on the development of a suitable “Weil coho- mology", the role of Segal’s Γ-rings and of topological cyclic homology as a model for “absolute algebra" and as a cohomological tool.},

The action of the multiplicative group of positive real numbers on the ad`ele class space corresponds to the action of the Frobenius automorphisms on the above geometric points. The underlying topological space of the arithmetic site is the topos of functors from the multiplicative semigroup of non-zero natural numbers to the category of sets. The structure sheaf is made by semirings of characteristic one and is given globally by the semifield of tropical integers. In spite of the countable combinatorial nature of the arithmetic site, this space admits a one parameter semigroup of Frobenius correspondences obtained as sub-varieties of the square of the site. This square is a semi-ringed topos whose structure sheaf involves Newton polygons.

the action of the maximal compact subgroup Zˆ∗ of the idèle class group. The structure sheaf of the scaling topos endows it with a natural structure of tropical curve over the topos N?×. The restriction of this structure to the periodic orbits of the scaling flow gives, for each prime p, an analogue C p of an elliptic curve whose Jacobian is Z/(p − 1)Z. The Riemann–Roch formula holds on Cp and involves real-valued dimensions and real degrees for divisors.

Uffe was a uniquely gifted mathematician of incredible analytic power and insight, which he generously shared with his many collaborators. His kindness and warm personality were greatly valued by his many friends and colleagues in Denmark and abroad.

We first show that this condition implies that the manifold decomposes into disconnected spheres which will represent quanta of geometry. We then refine the condition by involving the real structure and two types of geometric quanta, and show that connected spin-manifolds with large quantized volume are then obtained as solutions. The two algebras M2 (H) and M4 (C) are obtained which are the exact constituents of the Standard Model. Using the two maps from M4 to S4 the four-manifold is built out of a very large number of the two kinds of spheres of Planckian volume. We give several physical applications of this scheme such as quantization of the cosmological constant, mimetic dark matter and area quantization of black holes.},

abstract = {Motivated by the construction of spectral manifolds in noncommutative geometry, we introduce a higher degree Heisenberg commutation relation involving the Dirac operator and the Feynman slash of scalar fields. This commutation relation appears in two versions, one sided and two sided. It implies the quantization of the volume. In the one-sided case it implies that the manifold decomposes into a disconnected sum of spheres which will rep- resent quanta of geometry. The two sided version in dimension 4 predicts the two algebras M2(H) and M4(C) which are the algebraic constituents of the Standard Model of particle physics. This taken together with the non- commutative algebra of functions allows one to reconstruct, using the spectral action, the Lagrangian of gravity coupled with the Standard Model. We show that any connected Riemannian Spin 4-manifold with quantized volume > 4 (in suitable units) appears as an irreducible representation of the two-sided commutation relations in dimension 4 and that these representations give a seductive model of the “particle picture” for a theory of quantum gravity in which both the Einstein geometric standpoint and the Standard Model emerge from Quantum Mechanics. Physical applications of this quantization scheme will follow in a separate publication.},

The role of the Riemann zeta function, as partition function of the BC-system over C is replaced, in the p-adic case, by the p-adic L-functions and the polylogarithms whose values at roots of unity encode the KMS states. We use Iwasawa theory to extend the KMS theory to a covering of the completion Cp of an algebraic closure of Qp. We show that our previous work on the hyperring structure of the ad`ele class space, combines with p-adic analysis to refine the space of valuations on the cyclotomic extension of Q as a noncommutative space intimately related to the integral BC-system and whose arithmetic geometry comes close to fulfill the expectations of the “arithmetic site”. },

The first is a generating function for the Bernoulli numbers and is applied to the noncommutative Laplacian of the conformal factor, while the second is a two-variable function and is applied to a quadratic form in the first derivatives of the factor. Further outcomes of the paper include a variational proof of the Gauss-Bonnet theorem for non- commutative 2-tori, the modular analogue of Polyakov’s conformal anomaly formula for regularized determinants of Laplacians, a conceptual understand- ing of the modular curvature as gradient of the Ray-Singer analytic torsion, and the proof using operator positivity that the scale invariant version of the latter assumes its extreme value only at the flat metric.},

We had obtained, in the late eighties, in an unpublished computation, a general formula for ζ(0) involving modified logarithms of the modular operator of the state. We give here the detailed computation and prove that the result is independent of the Weyl factor as in the classical case, thus proving the analogue of the Gauss-Bonnet theorem for the noncommutative two torus.},

After introducing the notion of “perfect” semi-ring of characteristic one, we explain how to adapt the construction of the Witt ring in characteris- tic p > 1 to the limit case of characteristic one. This construction also unveils an interesting connection with entropy and thermodynamics, while shedding a new light on the classical Witt construction itself. We simplify our earlier construction of the geometric realization of an F1-scheme and extend our ear- lier computations of the zeta function to cover the case of F1-schemes with torsion. Then, we show that the study of the additive structures on monoids provides a natural map M ?→ A(M) from monoids to sets which comes close to fulfill the requirements for the hypothetical curve Spec Z over the absolute point SpecF1. Finally, we test the computation of the zeta function on elliptic curves over the rational numbers.},

This result applies to the adèle class space which thus inherits the structure of a hyperring extension HK of K. We begin to investigate the content of an algebraic geometry over K. The category of commutative hyperring extensions of K is inclusive of: commutative algebras over fields with semi-linear homomorphisms, abelian groups with injective homomorphisms and a rather exotic land comprising homogeneous non-Desarguesian planes. Finally, we show that for a global field K of positive characteristic, the groupoid of the prime elements of the hyperring HK is canonically and equivariantly isomorphic to the groupoid of the loops of the maximal abelian cover of the curve associated to the global field K.},

Until his death, Segal was the central figure in themanagement of the journal. He oversaw the business arrangements and played a decisive role inthe selection of editors. Fortunately for JFA, Malliavin was ready and able to pick up the looseends which Segal had left behind and to assume the role which he had played. For the last twelveyears, the most important decisions about the journal’s future were made by Malliavin, sittingin the tiny office next to the dining room in his apartment. During those years, Malliavin guidedJFA through some difficult times when, without his guidance, the journal’s very existence mighthave been in jeopardy.Because of his dedication and wisdom, JFA continues to play an important role in the in-ternational mathematics community and promises to be a strong presence in the future.

A new tensorial notation is developed to present the various constructs of noncommutative geome- try. In particular, this notation is used to determine the spectral data of the standard model. The particle spectrum with all of its symmetries is derived, almost uniquely, under the assumption of irreducibility and of di- mension 6 modulo 8 for the finite space. The reduction from the natural symmetry group SU(2) × SU(2) × SU(4) to U(1) × SU(2) × SU(3) is a consequence of the hypothesis that the two layers of space-time are finite distance apart but is non-dynamical. The square of the Dirac operator, and all geometrical invariants that appear in the calculation of the heat ker- nel expansion are evaluated. We re-derive the leading order terms in the spectral action. The geometrical action yields unification of all fundamental interactions including gravity at very high energies. We make the following predictions: (i) The number of fermions per family is 16. (ii) The symme- try group is U(1) × SU(2) × SU(3). (iii) There are quarks and leptons in the correct representations. (iv) There is a doublet Higgs that breaks the electroweak symmetry to U(1). (v) Top quark mass of 170-175 Gev. (v) There is a right-handed neutrino with a see-saw mechanism. Moreover, the zeroth order spectral action obtained with a cut-off function is consistent with experimental data up to few percent. We discuss a number of open issues. We prepare the ground for computing higher order corrections since the predicted mass of the Higgs field is quite sensitive to the higher order corrections. We speculate on the nature of the noncommutative space at Planckian energies and the possible role of the fundamental group for the problem of generations.},

abstract = {This paper explores analogies between the Weil proof of the Riemann hypothesis for function fields and the geometry of the adèles class space, which is the noncommutative space underlying Connes’ spectral realization of the zeros of the Riemann zeta function. We consider the cyclic homology of the cokernel (in the abelian category of cyclic modules) of the “restriction map” defined by the inclu- sion of the idèles class group of a global field in the noncommutative adèles class space. Weil’s explicit formula can then be formulated as a Lefschetz trace formula for the induced action of the idèles class group on this cohomology. In this formu- lation the Riemann hypothesis becomes equivalent to the positivity of the relevant trace pairing. This result suggests a possible dictionary between the steps in the Weil proof and corresponding notions involving the noncommutative geometry of the adèles class space, with good working notions of correspondences, degree, and codegree etc. In particular, we construct an analog for number fields of the algebraic points of the curve for function fields, realized here as classical points (low tempera- ture KMS states) of quantum statistical mechanical systems naturally associated to the periodic orbits of the action of the idèles class group, that is, to the noncommu- tative spaces on which the geometric side of the trace formula is supported.},

The index pairing with ordinary (untwisted) K-theory continues to make sense and the index formula is given by the pairing of the corresponding Chern characters. This opens the road to extending the local index formula to the type III case.},

We develop the notion of central quadratic form for quadratic algebras, and a general theory which creates a bridge between noncommutative differential geometry and its purely algebraic counterpart. It allows to construct a morphism from an involutive quadratic algebras to a C*-algebra constructed from the characteristic variety and the hermitian line bundle associated to the central quadratic form. We apply the general theory in the case of noncommutative 3-spheres and show that the above morphism corresponds to a natural ramified covering by a noncommutative 3-dimensional nilmanifold. We then compute the Jacobian of the ramified covering and obtain the answer as the product of a period (of an elliptic integral) by a rational function. We describe the real and complex moduli spaces of noncommutative 3-spheres, relate the real one to root systems and the complex one to the orbits of a birational cubic automorphism of three dimensional projective space. We classify the algebras and establish duality relations between them.},

abstract = {The unifying theme of this book is the interplay among noncommutative geometry, physics, and number theory. The two main objects of investigation are spaces where both the noncommutative and the motivic aspects come to play a role: space-time, where the guiding principle is the problem of developing a quantum theory of gravity, and the space of primes, where one can regard the Riemann Hypothesis as a long-standing problem motivating the development of new geometric tools. The book stresses the relevance of noncommutative geometry in dealing with these two spaces. The first part of the book deals with quantum field theory and the geometric structure of renormalization as a Riemann-Hilbert correspondence. It also presents a model of elementary particle physics based on noncommutative geometry. The main result is a complete derivation of the full Standard Model Lagrangian from a very simple mathematical input. Other topics covered in the first part of the book are a noncommutative geometry model of dimensional regularization and its role in anomaly computations, and a brief introduction to motives and their conjectural relation to quantum field theory. The second part of the book gives an interpretation of the Weil explicit formula as a trace formula and a spectral realization of the zeros of the Riemann zeta function. This is based on the noncommutative geometry of the adele class space, which is also described as the space of commensurability classes of Q-lattices, and is dual to a noncommutative motive (endomotive) whose cyclic homology provides a general setting for spectral realizations of zeros of L-functions. The quantum statistical mechanics of the space of Q-lattices, inone and two dimensions, exhibits spontaneous symmetry breaking. In the low-temperature regime, the equilibrium states of the corresponding systems are related to points of classical moduli spaces and the symmetries to the class field theory of the field of rational numbers and of imaginary quadratic fields, as well as to the automorphisms of the field of modular functions. The book ends with a set of analogies between the noncommutative geometries underlying the mathematical formulation of the Standard Model minimally coupled to gravity and the moduli spaces of Q-lattices used in the study of the zeta function.},

Starting from the phenomenological Lagrangian of gravity coupled with mat- ter one infers, using the spectral action principle, that space-time admits a fine structure which is a subtle mixture of the usual 4-dimensional continuum with a finite discrete structure F . Under the (unrealistic) hypothesis that this structure remains valid (i.e., one does not have any “hyperfine” modifica- tion) until the unification scale, one obtains a number of predictions whose approximate validity is a basic test of the approach.},

The unification is based on the symplectic unitary group in Hilbert space and on the spectral action. It yields all the detailed structure of the standard model with several predictions at unification scale. Besides the familiar predictions for the gauge couplings as for GUT theories, it predicts the Higgs scattering parameter and the sum of the squares of Yukawa couplings. From these relations one can extract predictions at low energy, giving in particular a Higgs mass around 170 GeV and a top mass compatible with present experimental value. The geometric picture that emerges is that space-time is the product of an ordinary spin manifold (for which the theory would deliver Einstein gravity) by a finite noncommutative geometry F. The discrete space F is of KO-dimension 6 modulo 8 and of metric dimension 0, and accounts for all the intricacies of the standard model with its spontaneous symmetry breaking Higgs sector.},

We assume as before that space-time is the product of a four-dimensional manifold by a finite noncommmutative space F. The spectral action is the pure gravitational action for the product space. To remove the above arbitrariness, we classify the irreducibe geometries F consistent with imposing reality and chiral conditions on spinors, to avoid the fermion doubling problem, which amounts to have total dimension 10 (in the K-theoretic sense). It gives, almost uniquely, the Standard Model with all its details, predicting the number of fermions per generation to be 16, their representations and the Higgs breaking mechanism, with very little input. The geometrical model is valid at the unification scale, and has relations connecting the gauge couplings to each other and to the Higgs coupling. This gives a prediction of the Higgs mass of around 170 GeV and a mass relation connecting the sum of the square of the masses of the fermions to the W mass square, which enables us to predict the top quark mass compatible with the measured experimental value. We thus manage to have the advantages of both SO(10) and Kaluza-Klein unification, without paying the price of plethora of Higgs fields or the infinite tower of states.},

A first instance occurred in [14], where the Weil explicit formulae acquire the geometric meaning of a Lefschetz trace formula over the noncommu- tative space of adele classes. The reason why the construction of [14] should be regarded as motivic is twofold. On the one hand, as we discuss in this paper, the adele class space is obtained from a noncommutative space, the Bost–Connes system, which sits naturally in a category of noncommutative spaces extending the category of Artin motives. Moreover, as we discuss briefly in this paper and in full detail in our forthcoming work [15], it is possible to give a cohomological interpretation of the spectral realization of the zeros of the Riemann zeta function of [14] on the cyclic homology of a noncommutative motive. The reason why this construction takes place in a category of (noncommutative) motives is that the geometric space we need to use is obtained as a cokernel of a morphism of alge- bras, which only exists in a suitable abelian category extending the non-additive category of algebras, exactly as in the context of motives and algebraic varieties.},

abstract = {Several results point to deep relations between noncommutative geometry and class field theory ([3], [10], [20], [22]). In [3] a quantum statistical mechanical system (BC) is exhibited, with partition func- tion the Riemann zeta function ζ(β), and whose arithmetic properties are related to the Galois theory of the maximal abelian extension of Q. In [10], this system is reinterpreted in terms of the geome- try of commensurable 1-dimensional Q-lattices, and a generalization is constructed for 2-dimensional Q-lattices. The arithmetic properties of this GL2-system and its extremal KMS states at zero tem- perature are related to the Galois theory of the modular field F, that is, the field of elliptic modular functions. These are functions on modular curves, i.e. on moduli spaces of elliptic curves. The low temperature extremal KMS states and the Galois properties of the GL2-system are analyzed in [10] for the generic case of elliptic curves with transcendental j-invariant. As the results of [10] show, one of the main new features of the GL2-system is the presence of symmetries by endomorphism, as in (2.6) below. The full Galois group of the modular field appears then as symmetries, acting on the set of extremal KMSβ states of the system, for large inverse temperature β.},

We evaluate all the low-energy terms in the spectral action and determine the dilaton couplings. These results are applied to the spectral action of the noncommutative space defined by the standard model. We show that the effective action for all matter couplings is scale invariant, except for the dilaton kinetic term and Einstein-Hilbert term. The resulting action is almost identical to the one proposed for making the standard model scale invariant as well as the model for extended inflation and has the same low-energy limit as the Randall-Sundrum model. Remarkably, all desirable features with correct signs for the relevant terms are obtained uniquely and without any fine tuning},

abstract = {The main idea of renormalization is to correct the original Lagrangian of a quantum field theory by an infinite series of counterterms, labelled by the Feynman graphs that encode the combinatorics of the perturbative expansion of the theory. These counterterms have the effect of cancelling the ultraviolet divergences. Thus, in the procedure of perturbative renormalization, one introduces a counterterm C(Γ) in the initial Lagrangian for every divergent one particle irreducible (1PI) Feynman diagram Γ. In the case of a renormalizable theory, all the necessary counterterms C(Γ) can be obtained by modifying the numerical parameters that appear in the original Lagrangian. It is possible to modify these parameters and replace them by (divergent) series, since they are not observable, unlike actual physical quantities that have to be finite. One of the fundamental difficulties with any renormaliza- tion procedure is a systematic treatment of nested and overlapping divergences in multiloop diagrams.},

abstract = {The problem originates from the work of Bost–Connes, [3], [4], where a system with all the properties listed above was constructed for K = Q. Important developments in the direction of generalizing the Bost–Connes system to other number fields were obtained by Harari and Leichtnam [10], Cohen [6], Arledge, Laca and Raeburn [1], Laca and van Frankenhuijsen [11]. These results all assume restrictions on the class number of K. It was widely believed that a system satisfying all the properties of Problem 1.1 would exist (supposedly for any number field and certainly at least in the case where K is an imaginary quadratic field). However, a complete construction (without special assumptions on the class number) had not been obtained so far for any case other than Q.

The purpose of the present paper is to give a complete solution to Problem 1.1, for K an imaginary quadratic field, without any restriction on the class number of K. In an accompanying paper [8], we explain the geometry underlying and motivating the construction presented in this paper, and we make a detailed comparison between the properties of the system described here, the original Bost–Connes system [4] and the GL2-system of [7].},

Their underlying symmetry is shown to be encoded by the same Hopf algebra that controls the transverse geometry of codimension 1 folia- tions. Its action is shown to span the ‘holomorphic tangent space’ of the noncommutative space, and each of its three basic Hopf cyclic co- cycles acquires a specific meaning. The Schwarzian 1-cocycle gives an inner derivation implemented by the level 1 Eisenstein series of weight 4. The Hopf cyclic 2-cocycle representing the transverse fundamental class provides a natural extension of the first Rankin-Cohen bracket to the modular Hecke algebras. Lastly, the Hopf cyclic version of the Godbillon-Vey cocycle gives rise to a 1-cocycle on PSL(2, Q) with val- ues in Eisenstein series of weight 2, which, when coupled with the ‘period’ cocycle, yields a representative of the Euler class.},

This specific example allows to illustrate the general notion of locality in NCG. The formulas computing the residue are ”local”. Locality by stripping all the expressions from irrelevant details makes them computable. The key fea- ture of this spectral triple is its equivariance, i.e. the SUq(2)-symmetry.

It allows to control the C∗-norm on involutive quadratic algebras and to construct the differential calculus in the desired generality. The moduli space of noncommutative 3-spheres is identified with equivalence classes of pairs of points in a symmetric spaceof unitary unimodular symmetric matrices. The scaling foliation of the moduli space is identified to the gradient flow of the character of a virtual representation of SO(6). Its generic orbits are connected components of real parts of elliptic curves which form a net of biquadratic curves with 8 points in common. We show that generically these curves are the same as the characteristic variety of the associated quadratic algebra. We then apply the general theory of central quadratic forms to show that the noncommutative 3-spheres admit a natural ramified covering π by a noncommutative 3-dimensional nilmanifold. This yields the differential calculus. We then compute the Jacobian of the ramified covering π by pairing the direct image of the fundamental class of the noncommutative 3--dimensional nilmanifold with the Chern character of the defining unitary and obtain the answer as the product of a period (of an elliptic integral) by a rational function},

This algebra is Gorenstein and Koszul of global dimension 3 but except for s=1 (i.e. in the 2-dimensional case) where it is the universal enveloping algebra of the Heisenberg Lie algebra and is a cubic Artin-Schelter regular algebra, it fails to be regular in that it has exponential growth. We give an explicit formula for the Poincare series of this algebra A and for the dimension in degree n of the graded Lie algebra of which A is the universal enveloping algebra. In the 4-dimensional (i.e. s=3) Euclidean case, a quotient of this algebra is the quadratic algebra generated by the covariant derivatives of a generic (anti) self-dual connection. This latter algebra is Koszul of global dimension 2 but is not Gorenstein and has exponential growth. It is the universal enveloping algebra of the graded Lie-algebra which is the semi-direct product of the free Lie algebra with three generators of degree one by a derivation of degree one.},

abstract = {We prove a cyclic cohomological analogue of Haefliger’s van Est- type theorem for the groupoid of germs of diffeomorphisms of a man- ifold. The differentiable version of cyclic cohomology is associated to the algebra of transverse differential operators on that groupoid, which is shown to carry an intrinsic Hopf algebraic structure. We establish a canonical isomorphism between the periodic Hopf cyclic cohomology of this extended Hopf algebra and the Gelfand-Fuchs cohomology of the Lie algebra of formal vector fields. We then show that this iso- morphism can be explicitly implemented at the cochain level, by a cochain map constructed out of a fixed torsion-free linear connection. This allows the direct treatment of the index formula for the hypoelliptic signature operator – representing the diffeomorphism invariant transverse fundamental K-homology class of an oriented manifold – in the general case, when this operator is constructed by means of an arbitrary coupling connection.

Here, three members of the French Academy of Sciences: Alain Connes, Andre Lichnerowicz, and Marcel Paul Schutzenberger, discuss the relations among mathematics, physics, and philosophy, and other sciences. Written in the form of conversations among three brilliant scientists and deep thinkers, the book touches on, among others, the following questions: is there a primordial truth that exists beyond the realm of what is provable? More generally, is there a distinction between what is true in mathematics and what is provable? How is mathematics different from other sciences? How is it the same? Does mathematics have an object or an object of study, the way physics, chemistry and biology do?

abstract = {Les grandes découvertes scientifiques du XXe siècle, telles que la relativité générale, la mécanique quantique ou le théorème de Gödel, modifient en profondeur notre perception de la réalité. Les physiciens sont arrivés en un siècle à un modèle extraordinairement efficace de la réalité matérielle. Aux échelles microscopiques, la mécanique quantique résiste avec succès aux tentatives les plus ingénieuses pour la prendre en défaut. Aux échelles des galaxies, l'observation des pulsars binaires donne des confirmations éclatantes de la relativité générale d'Einstein. Le but de cet ouvrage est de permettre de franchir le décalage croissant entre les subtilités de ces modifications, appréciées des seuls spécialistes, et l'image souvent incroyablement déformée qu'en reçoit le public. Chacun des trois auteurs est l'un des sommets de ce triangle de pensées, au sein duquel le lecteur est invité à trouver sa place. Alain Connes, mathématicien, est professeur au Collège de France à la chaire d'Analyse et Géométrie, membre de l'Académie des sciences et de plusieurs académies étrangères, dont la National Academy of Science des États-Unis.

abstract = {Our geometric concepts evolved first through the discovery of NonEuclidean geometry. The discovery of quantum mechanics in the form of the noncommuting coordinates on the phase space of atomic systems entails an equally drastic evolution. We describe a basic construction which extends the familiar duality between ordinary spaces and commutative algebras to a duality between Quotient spaces and Noncommutative algebras. The basic tools of the theory, K-theory, Cyclic cohomology, Morita equivalence, Operator theoretic index theorems, Hopf algebra symmetry are reviewed. They cover the global aspects of noncommuta- tive spaces, such as the transformation θ → 1/θ for the noncommutative torus T2θ which are unseen in perturbative expansions in θ such as star or Moyal products. We discuss the foundational problem of ”what is a manifold in NCG” and explain the fundamental role of Poincare duality in K-homology which is the basic reason for the spectral point of view. This leads us, when specializing to 4-geometries to a universal algebra called the ”Instanton algebra”. We describe our joint work with G. Landi which gives noncommutative spheres Sθ4 from representations of the Instanton algebra. We show that any compact Riemannian spin manifold whose isometry group has rank r ≥ 2 admits isospectral deformations to non- commutative geometries. We give a survey of several recent developments. First our joint work with H. Moscovici on the transverse geometry of foliations which yields a diffeomorphism invariant (rather than the usual covariant one) geometry on the bundle of metrics on a manifold and a natural extension of cyclic cohomology to Hopf algebras. Second, our joint work with D. Kreimer on renormalization and the Riemann-Hilbert problem. Finally we describe the spectral realization of zeros of zeta and L-functions from the noncommutative space of Adele classes on a global field and its relation with the Arthur-Selberg trace for- mula in the Langlands program. We end with a tentalizing connection between the renormalization group and the missing Galois theory at Archimedian places.},

It is the dual Hopf algebra of the envelopping algebra of a Lie algebra G whose basis is labelled by the one particle irreducible Feynman graphs.

where C is a small circle of complex dimensions around the integer dimension D of space-time. Our main result is that the renormalized theory is just the evaluation at z = D of the holomorphic part γ+ of the Birkhoff decomposition of γ.

We begin to analyse the group G and show that it is a semi-direct product of an easily understood abelian group by a highly non-trivial group closely tied up with groups of diffeomorphisms.

When this principle is applied to the noncommutative space defined by the spectrum of the standard model one obtains the standard model action coupled to Einstein plus Weyl gravity. There are relations between the gauge coupling con- stants identical to those of SU(5) as well as the Higgs self-coupling, to be taken at a fixed high energy scale.},

These “gravitational monopoles” have the following equivalent properties: (i) they generate, outside them, a spherically-symmetric gravitational potential M/| x − xO| ; (ii) their interaction energy with an external gravitational potential U(x) is −M U(xO); and (iii) all their mul- tipole moments (of order l ≥ 1) with respect to their center of mass O vanish identically. The method applies for any number of space dimensions. The free parameters entering the construction are: (1) an arbitrary surface Σ bounding a connected open subset Ω of R3; (2) the arbitrary choice of the center of mass O within Ω ; and (3) the total volume of the body. An extension of the method allows one to construct homogeneous bodies which are gravitationally equivalent (in the sense of having exactly the same multipole moments) to any given body.},

Its unitary representations cor- respond to Riemannian metrics and Spin structure while ds is the Dirac propagator ds = ×—× = D−1 where D is the Dirac operator. We extend these simple relations to the non commutative case using Tomita’s involution J. We then write a spectral action, the trace of a function of the length element in Planck units, which when applied to the non commutative geometry of the Standard Model will be shown (in a joint work with Ali Chamseddine) to give the SM Lagrangian coupled to gravity. The internal fluctuations of the non commutative geometry are trivial in the commutative case but yield the full bosonic sector of SM with all correct quantum numbers in the slightly non commutative case. The group of local gauge transformations appears spontaneously as a normal subgroup of the diffeomorphism group.

This paper contributes to the advancement of this point of view in two significant ways: (1) by showing that any pseudogroup of transformations of a manifold gives rise to such a spectral triple of finite summability degree, and (2) by proving a general, in some sense universal, local index formula for an arbitrary spectral triple of finite summability degree, in terms of the Dixmier trace and its residue-type extension.

Conversations on mind, matter, and mathematics

abstract = {Do numbers and the other objects of mathematics enjoy a timeless existence independent of human minds, or are they the products of cerebral invention? Do we discover them, as Plato supposed and many others have believed since, or do we construct them? Does mathematics constitute a universal language that in principle would permit human beings to communicate with extraterrestrial civilizations elsewhere in the universe, or is it merely an earthly language that owes its accidental existence to the peculiar evolution of neuronal networks in our brains? Does the physical world actually obey mathematical laws, or does it seem to conform to them simply because physicists have increasingly been able to make mathematical sense of it? Jean-Pierre Changeux, an internationally renowned neurobiologist, and Alain Connes, one of the most eminent living mathematicians, find themselves deeply divided by these questions.

The problematic status of mathematical objects leads Changeux and Connes to the organization and function of the brain, the ways in which its embryonic and post-natal development influences the unfolding of mathematical reasoning and other kinds of thinking, and whether human intelligence can be simulated, modeled, --or actually reproduced-- by mechanical means. The two men go on to pose ethical questions, inquiring into the natural foundations of morality and the possibility that it may have a neural basis underlying its social manifestations. This vivid record of profound disagreement and, at the same time, sincere search for mutual understanding, follows in the tradition of Poincare, Hadamard, and von Neumann in probing the limits of human experience and intellectual possibility. Why order should exist in the world at all, and why it should be comprehensible to human beings, is the question that lies at the heart of these remarkable dialogues.

abstract = {We consider the cluster of problems raised by the relation between the notion of time, gravitational theory, quantum theory and thermodynamics; in partic- ular, we address the problem of relating the “timelessness” of the hypothetical fundamental general covariant quantum field theory with the “evidence” of the flow of time. By using the algebraic formulation of quantum theory, we pro- pose a unifying perspective on these problems, based on the hypothesis that in a generally covariant quantum theory the physical time-flow is not a universal property of the mechanical theory, but rather it is determined by the thermo- dynamical state of the system (“thermal time hypothesis”). We implement this hypothesis by using a key structural property of von Neumann algebras: the Tomita-Takesaki theorem, which allows to derive a time-flow, namely a one- parameter group of automorphisms of the observable algebra, from a generic thermal physical state. We study this time-flow, its classical limit, and we re- late it to various characteristic theoretical facts, as the Unruh temperature and the Hawking radiation. We also point out the existence of a state-independent notion of “time”, given by the canonical one-parameter subgroup of outer au- tomorphisms provided by Connes Cocycle Radon-Nikodym theorem.

First of all, as pointed out by Gromov [18], they are “generic” among all finitely presented groups in the following sense:the ratio between the number of hyperbolic groups and all groups with a fixed number of generators and a fixed number of relations, each of length at most 1,tends to 1 when I+co [18,0.2(A)]. Secondly, when adding at random relations to a (non-elementary) hyperbolic group, one obtains again a hyperbolic group [18,5.5]. Thirdly, the cohomology of any finite polyhedron can be embedded into the cohomology of a hyperbolic group [18, 0.2(c)]. Also, many of the hyperbolic groups exhibit “exotic” properties, like Kazhdan’s property T [ 18,5.61or being non-linear (in a non-trivial way).

When the foliation is by the fibers of a fibration, this theorem reduces to the Atiyah-Singer index theorem for families ([2], Theorem 3.1). It implies the index theorem for measured foliations ([9], Theorem, p. 136) and unlike the latter makes sense for arbitrary foliations, not necessarily gifted with a holonomy invariant transverse measure.},
