By Bogdan Bojarski, Alexander S. Mishchenko, Evgenij V. Troitsky, Andrzej Weber, Dan Burghelea, Richard Melrose, Victor Nistor

This quantity comprises the complaints of the convention on "C*-algebras and Elliptic thought" held in Bedlewo, Poland, in February 2004. It includes unique study papers and expository articles focussing on index concept and topology of manifolds.
The assortment deals a cross-section of important fresh advances in numerous fields, the most topic being K-theory (of C*-algebras, equivariant K-theory). a couple of papers is expounded to the index conception of pseudodifferential operators on singular manifolds (with barriers, corners) or open manifolds. extra issues are Hopf cyclic cohomology, geometry of foliations, residue idea, Fredholm pairs and others. The vast spectrum of matters displays the varied instructions of analysis emanating from the Atiyah-Singer index theorem.

So we see that our group Γ is amenable if and only if its reduced C ∗ -algebra has the CPAP. An alternative way to characterise amenability is via an approximation property for the Fourier algebra A(Γ). Leptin proved in [17] that a locally compact group G is amenable if and only if the Fourier algebra A(G) has an approximate identity which is bounded in the norm − A(G) . 4. A complex-valued function u on Γ is a multiplier for A(Γ) if the linear map mu (v) = uv maps A(Γ) into A(Γ). The set of multipliers of A(Γ) is denoted M A(Γ).

First we discuss a numerical invariant associated with a Riemannian metric, a vector field with isolated zeros, and a closed one form which is defined by a geometrically regularized integral. This invariant, extends the Chern–Simons class from a pair of two Riemannian metrics to a pair of a Riemannian metric and a smooth triangulation. Next we discuss a generalization of Turaev’s Euler structures to manifolds with non-vanishing Euler characteristics and introduce the Poincar´e dual concept of co-Euler structures.

51 E(g) ∈ Ωn (M ; OM ) denotes the Euler class of g which is a form with values in the orientation bundle OM . We call two pairs (g1 , α1 ) and (g2 , α2 ) equivalent if cs(g1 , g2 ) = α2 − α1 ∈ Ωn−1 (M \ x0 ; OM )/dΩn−2 (M \ x0 ; OM ). We will write Eul∗x0 (M ; R) for the set of equivalence classes and [g, α] for the equivalence class represented by the pair (g, α). Elements of Eul∗x0 (M ; R) are called co-Euler structures based at x0 . There is a natural H n−1 (M ; OM ) action on Eul∗x0 (M ; R) given by [g, α] + [β] := [g, α − β] with [β] ∈ H n−1 (M ; OM ).
