The theory associates to an oriented, parametrized two-manifold a differential graded algebra, they say.
Theorem 6.8 The algebra G^NDPF is the free graded algebra with generators (), (0), (00), ....
Let us mention that if [OMEGA] is a graded differential algebra, then Ker d is the graded unital subalgebra of [OMEGA], whereas Im d is the graded two-sided ideal of Ker d, so the cohomology H([OMEGA]) is the unital associative graded algebra. Obviously [MATHEMATICAL EXPRESSION NOT REPRODUCIBLE IN ASCII] is a first-order differential calculus over the algebra U.
It considers C*-algebras from the perspective of partial actions and describes a graded algebra as a partial crossed product, tools to study it, and Fell bundles, looking at these bundlesAE internal structure and ways they may be reassembled to form a C*-algebra, presenting the result that every separable Fell bundle with stable unit fiber algebra must arise as the semi-direct product bundle for a partial action of the base group on its unit fiber algebra.
It is also shown that if both Rota-Baxter operators coincide with each other and the curvature is A-bilinear, then the (modified by R) Hochschild cohomology ring over A is a curved differential graded algebra.
By an abuse of language, we call the free algebra the graded algebra infinite but finite degree sum of words.
Furthermore, under the condition (L), we have U(Gr(F)/I) = Gr(Z[G]),where Gr(Z[G]) := [[direct sum].sub.q[greater than or equal to]0] [J.sup.q]/[J.sup.q+1] is the graded algebra filtered by the powers of the augmentation ideal J of the group algebra Z[G].
The symmetric algebra of I over R is the graded algebra SR (I) = [[cross product].sub.t [greater than or equal to] 0] [S.sub.t] (I), where St (I) are the symmetric powers.
The analogous object in the category gVec of graded vector spaces is a graded algebra.
We answer this question in Section 4 by introducing the notion of an integrable Z-divergence which is a curved differential graded algebra version of the notion of a hom-connection from [6], which, in turn, is a noncommutative counterpart of that of a right connection introduced by Manin in context of supermanifolds [15, Chapter 4[section]5].
Proposition 3.1 The ideal ([f.sub.1], [f.sub.2], ...) [subset or equal to] k[[x.sup.(i).sub.j]; 1 [less than or equal to] j [less than or equal to] n, i [member of] N \{0}] is homogeneous with respect to the weight wt; hence the focussed arc algebra JOO (X) is a graded algebra. Moreover, all homogeneous parts [J.sup.0.sub.[infinity]][(X).sub.i] of weight i are finite dimensional k-vector spaces.
