The twisted equivariant K-theory given by Freed and Moore is a K-theory which unifies twisted equivariant complex K-theory, Atiyah's `Real' K-theory, and their variants. In a general setting, we formulate this K-theory by using Fredholm operators, and establish basic properties such as the Bott periodicity. We also provide formulations of the K-theory based on Karoubi's gradations in both infinite and finite dimensions, clarifying their relationship with the Fredholm formulation. Read More

In semimetals with time-reversal symmetry, the interplay between Weyl points and Fu-Kane-Mele indices results in coexisting surface Dirac cones and Fermi arcs that are transmutable without a topological phase transition. The Weyl points' connectivity is essential for capturing the full topology of semimetals and their role as intermediaries of topological insulator transitions. We also predict the possibility of a topological Dirac cone on the interface between two Weyl semimetals. Read More

In this paper we investigate the problem of the cohomological classification of "Quaternionic" vector bundles in low-dimension ($d\leqslant 3$). We show that there exists a characteristic classes $\kappa$, called the FKMM-invariant, which takes value in the relative equivariant Borel cohomology and completely classifies "Quaternionic" vector bundles in low-dimension. The main subject of the paper concerns a discussion about the surjectivity of $\kappa$. Read More

We formulate topological crystalline materials on the basis of the twisted equivariant $K$-theory. Basic ideas of the twisted equivariant $K$-theory is explained with application to topological phases protected by crystalline symmetries in mind, and systematic methods of topological classification for crystalline materials are presented. Our formulation is applicable to bulk gapful topological crystalline insulators/superconductors and their gapless boundary and defect states, as well as bulk gapless topological materials such as Weyl and Dirac semimetals, and nodal superconductors.

A twist is a datum playing a role of a local system for topological $K$-theory. In equivariant setting, twists are classified into four types according to how they are realized geometrically. This paper lists the possible types of twists for the torus with the actions of the point groups of all the 2-dimensional space groups (crystallographic groups), or equivalently, the torus with the actions of all the possible finite subgroups in its mapping class group.

This paper focuses on the study of a new category of vector bundles. The objects of this category, called chiral vector bundles, are pairs given by a complex vector bundle along with one of its automorphisms. We provide a classification for the homotopy equivalence classes of these objects based on the construction of a suitable classifying space. Read More

It has been known that an anti-unitary symmetry such as time-reversal or charge conjugation is needed to realize Z2 topological phases in non-interacting systems. Topological insulators and superconducting nanowires are representative examples of such Z2 topological matters. Here we report the first-known Z2 topological phase protected by only unitary symmetries. Read More

Topological quantum systems subjected to an even (resp. odd) time-reversal symmetry can be classified by looking at the related "Real" (resp. "Quaternionic") Bloch-bundles. Read More

We provide a classification of type AII topological quantum systems in dimension d=1,2,3,4. Our analysis is based on the construction of a topological invariant, the FKMM-invariant, which completely classifies "Quaternionic" vector bundles (a.k. Read More

We provide a classification of type AI topological quantum systems in dimension d=1,2,3,4 which is based on the equivariant homotopy properties of "Real" vector bundles. This allows us to produce a fine classification able to take care also of the non stable regime which is usually not accessible via K-theoretic techniques. We prove the absence of non-trivial phases for one-band AI free or periodic quantum particle systems in each spatial dimension by inspecting the second equivariant cohomology group which classifies "Real" line bundles.

For a space with involutive action, there is a variant of K-theory. Motivated by T-duality in type II orbifold string theory, we establish that a twisted version of the variant enjoys a topological T-duality for Real circle bundles, i.e. Read More

Mickelsson's invariant is an invariant of certain odd twisted K-classes of compact oriented three dimensional manifolds. We reformulate the invariant as a natural homomorphism taking values in a quotient of the third cohomology, and provide a generalization taking values in a quotient of the fifth cohomology. These homomorphisms are related to the Atiyah-Hirzebruch spectral sequence. Read More

For twisted K-theory whose twist is classified by a degree three integral cohomology of infinite order, universal even degree characteristic classes are in one to one correspondence with invariant polynomials of Atiyah and Segal. The present paper describes the ring of these invariant polynomials by a basis and structure constants. Read More

We provide a finite-dimensional model of the twisted K-group twisted by any degree three integral cohomology class of a CW complex. One key to the model is Furuta's generalized vector bundle, and the other is a finite-dimensional approximation of Fredholm operators. Read More

Based on projective representations of smooth Deligne cohomology groups, we introduce an analogue of the space of conformal blocks to compact oriented (4k+2)-dimensional Riemannian manifolds with boundary. For the standard (4k+2)-dimensional disk, we compute the space concretely to prove that its dimension is finite. Read More

This is an expository account of the following result: we can construct a group by means of twisted Z_2-graded vectorial bundles which is isomorphic to K-theory twisted by any degree three integral cohomology class. Read More

We construct projective unitary representations of the smooth Deligne cohomology group of a compact oriented Riemannian manifold of dimension 4k+1, generalizing positive energy representations of the loop group of the circle. We also classify such representations under a certain condition. The number of the equivalence classes of irreducible representations is finite, and is determined by the cohomology of the manifold. Read More

We construct a central extension of the smooth Deligne cohomology group of a compact oriented odd dimensional smooth manifold, generalizing that of the loop group of the circle. While the central extension turns out to be trivial for a manifold of dimension 3, 7, 11,.. Read More

The groups of differential characters of Cheeger and Simons admit a natural multiplicative structure. The map given by the squares of degree 2k differential characters reduces to a homomorphism of ordinary cohomology groups. We prove that the homomorphism factors through the Steenrod squaring operation of degree 2k. Read More

From a certain strongly equivariant bundle gerbe with connection and curving over a smooth manifold on which a Lie group acts, we construct under some conditions a bundle gerbe with connection and curving over the quotient space. In general, the construction requires a choice, and we can consequently obtain distinct stable isomorphism classes of bundle gerbes with connection and curving over the quotient space. A bundle gerbe naturally arising in Chern-Simons theory provides an example of the reduction. Read More

By means of cohomology groups, we study relationships between equivariant gerbes with connection over a manifold with a Lie group action and gerbes with connection over the quotient space. Read More

On the basis of Brylinski's work, we introduce a notion of equivariant smooth Deligne cohomology group, which is a generalization of both the ordinary smooth Deligne cohomology and the ordinary equivariant cohomology. Using the cohomology group, we classify equivariant circle bundles with connection, and equivariant gerbes with connection. Read More

We construct a connection and a curving on a bundle gerbe associated with lifting a structure group of a principal bundle to a central extension. The construction is based on certain structures on the bundle, i.e. Read More

We construct geometrically a gerbe assigned to a connection on a principal SU(2)-bundle over an oriented closed 1-dimensional manifold. If the connection is given by the restriction of a connection on a bundle over a compact 2-manifold bounding the 1-manifold, then we have a natural object in the gerbe. The gerbes and the objects satisfy certain fundamental properties, e. Read More

We formulate the Chern-Simons action for any compact Lie group using Deligne cohomology. This action is defined as a certain function on the space of smooth maps from the underlying 3-manifold to the classifying space for principal bundles. If the 3-manifold is closed, the action is a function with values in complex numbers. Read More
