These representations are the constituents of a spectral triple on this sphere with a Dirac operator which is isospectral to the canonical one of the spin structure of the round undeformed four-sphere and which gives metric dimension four for the noncommutative geometry. Non-triviality of the geometry is proved by pairing the associated Fredholm module with an `instanton\\\' projection. A real structure which satisfies all required properties modulo a suitable ideal of `infinitesimals\\\' is also introduced.1 aD'Andrea, Francesco1 aDabrowski, Ludwik1 aLandi, Giovanni uhttp://hdl.handle.net/1963/256700932nas a2200121 4500008004300000245004500043210004400088260001300132520058700145100002200732700002000754856003600774 2002 en_Ud 00aInstanton algebras and quantum 4-spheres0 aInstanton algebras and quantum 4spheres bElsevier3 aWe study some generalized instanton algebras which are required to describe `instantonic complex rank 2 bundles\\\'. The spaces on which the bundles are defined are not prescribed from the beginning but rather are obtained from some natural requirements on the instantons. They turn out to be quantum 4-spheres $S^4_q$, with $q\\\\in\\\\IC$, and the instantons are described by self-adjoint idempotents e. We shall also clarify some issues related to the vanishing of the first Chern-Connes class $ch_1(e)$ and on the use of the second Chern-Connes class $ch_2(e)$ as a volume form.1 aDabrowski, Ludwik1 aLandi, Giovanni uhttp://hdl.handle.net/1963/313401003nas a2200133 4500008004300000245004600043210004300089260001300132520062600145100002200771700002000793700002000813856003600833 2001 en_Ud 00aInstantons on the Quantum 4-Spheres S^4_q0 aInstantons on the Quantum 4Spheres S4q bSpringer3 aWe introduce noncommutative algebras $A_q$ of quantum 4-spheres $S^4_q$, with $q\\\\in\\\\IR$, defined via a suspension of the quantum group $SU_q(2)$, and a quantum instanton bundle described by a selfadjoint idempotent $e\\\\in \\\\Mat_4(A_q)$, $e^2=e=e^*$. Contrary to what happens for the classical case or for the noncommutative instanton constructed in Connes-Landi, the first Chern-Connes class $ch_1(e)$ does not vanish thus signaling a dimension drop. The second Chern-Connes class $ch_2(e)$ does not vanish as well and the couple $(ch_1(e), ch_2(e))$ defines a cycle in the $(b,B)$ bicomplex of cyclic homology.1 aDabrowski, Ludwik1 aLandi, Giovanni1 aMasuda, Tetsuya uhttp://hdl.handle.net/1963/3135
