Title: A categorical definition of the cyclic differential
Speaker: Professor Dmitry Kaledin
Speaker Info:
Brief Description:
Special Note:

We will show how to define the cyclic differential and cyclic homology of an associative algebra $A$ in a more categorical manner, without using explicit resolutions such as a bar-resolution. We will also explain how the construction is related to the notion of the Drinfeld double of a tensor category.
