Twisted groupoid KR-theory

Abstract : In his 1966's paper "Ktheory and Reality", Atiyah introduced a variant of Ktheory of complex vector bundles called KRtheory, which, in some sense, is a mixture of complex Ktheory KU, real Ktheory (also called orthogonal Ktheory) KO, and Anderson's selfconjugate Ktheory KSc. The main purpose of this thesis is to generalize that theory to the noncommutative framework of twisted groupoid Ktheory. We then introduce twisted groupoid KRtheory by using the powerful machineries of Kasparov's "real" KKtheory. Specifically, we deal with the Ktheory of graded C*algebras associated with groupoid dynamical systems endowed with involutions. Such dynamical systems are classified by the Real graded Brauer group to be defined and computed in terms of Cech cohomology classes. In this new Ktheory, we give the analogues of the fundamental results in Ktheory such as the MayerVietoris exact sequences, the Bott periodicity and the Thom isomorphism theorem
