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 `base spaceâ€™ 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.1 aArici, Francesca uhttps://www.math.sissa.it/publication/principal-circle-bundles-pimsner-algebras-and-gysin-sequences
