Modified Hochschild and Periodic Cyclic Homology
The Hochschild and (periodic) cyclic homology of Banach algebras are either trivial or not interesting, see Connes , , . To correct this deficiency, Connes  had produced the entire cyclic cohomology (see also , , ). The entire cyclic cochains are elements of the infinite product (b,B) cohomology bi-complex which satisfy a certain bidegree asymptotic growth condition. The entire cyclic cohomology is a natural target for the asymptotic Chern character of θ-summable Fredholm modules.
More recently, Puschnigg  introduced the local cyclic cohomology based on precompact subsets of the algebra in an inductive limits system setting.
The main purpose of this paper is to create an analogue of the Hochschild and periodic cyclic homology which gives the right result (i.e., the ordinary ℤ2-graded Alexander-Spanier co-homology of the manifold) when applied, at least, onto the algebra of continuous functions on topological manifolds and CW-complexes. This is realized by replacing the Connes periodic bi-complex (b,B), see Connes ,  and Loday , by the bi-complex (\( \tilde b \), d), where the operator \( \tilde b \) is obtained by blending the Hochschild boundary b with the Alexander-Spanier boundary d; the operator \( \tilde b \) anti-commutes with the operator d. The homologies of these complexes will be called modified Hochschild, resp. modified periodic cyclic homology.
Our construction uses in addition to the algebraic structure solely the locality relationship extracted from the topological structure of the algebra.
The modified periodic cyclic homology is invariant under continuous homotopies, while the others are invariant at smooth homotopies (diffeotopies) only.
The modified Hochschild and periodic cyclic homology are directly connected to the Alexander-Spanier cohomology.
