Spanier-Whitehead K-duality for $C^*$-algebras

No data is associated with this publication.

Classical Spanier-Whitehead duality was introduced for the stable homotopy category of finite CW complexes. Here we provide a comprehensive treatment of a noncommutative version, termed Spanier-Whitehead $K$-duality, which is defined on the category of $C^*$-algebras whose $K$-theory is finitely generated and that satisfy the UCT with morphisms the $KK$-groups. We explore what happens when these assumptions are relaxed in various ways. In particular, we consider the relationship between Paschke duality and Spanier-Whitehead $K$-duality.
