We define quantum lens spaces as {\textquoteleft}direct sums of line bundles{\textquoteright} and exhibit them as {\textquoteleft}total spaces{\textquoteright} of certain principal bundles over quantum projective spaces. For each of these quantum lens spaces we construct an analogue of the classical Gysin sequence in K-theory. We use the sequence to compute the K-theory of the quantum lens spaces, in particular to give explicit geometric representatives of their K-theory classes. These representatives are interpreted as {\textquoteleft}line bundles{\textquoteright} over quantum lens spaces and generically define {\textquoteleft}torsion classes{\textquoteright}. We work out explicit examples of these classes.

This works focuses on the noncommutative topology of principal circle bundles: we investigate the connections between noncommutative principal circle bundles, Pimsner algebras and strongly graded algebras. At the C*-algebraic level, we start from a self-Morita equivalence bimodule E for a C*-algebra B which we think of as a non commutative line bundle over the {\textquoteleft}base space{\textquoteright} algebra B. The corresponding Pimsner algebra O_E, is then the total space algebra of an associated circle bundle. A natural six term exact sequence, an analogue of the Gysin sequence for circle bundles, relates the KK-theories of O_E and of the base space B. We illustrate several results with the examples of quantum weighted projective and lens spaces.}, author = {Francesca Arici} }
