The Cayley transform and K-theory
The Cayley transform is a way to pass between unitary operators and self-adjoint (generally unbounded) operators on a Hilbert space or C*-module. I will review this construction and its application to an isomorphism between K-theory and Kasparov modules. Time permitting, I will also introduce a Z_2-graded analogue of this transform and its application to van Daele K-theory for graded C*-algebras. Explicit isomorphisms for all 8 real K-theory groups are a special case of this map. This is joint work with Johannes Kellendonk and Adam Rennie.
