    I am (slowly) working on bringing the entry differential cohomology in better shape.

    For the moment I am adding a section on the Hopkins-Singer formulation.

    I see Ulrich's influence :) Don't forget to learn something about eta invariants and determinant line bundles (in the business of zeta function renormalization and quantum anomalies), he has a number of papers on them (I do not know what was his motivation).

    That’s a good suggestion, Zoran, but I am afraid there is no time for that. But I’ll see.

    I added a (very brief so far) Properties-section on the Hopkins-Singer definition.

    Then I wrote on my personal web in the section General differential cohomology the outline of an argument that is supposed to show that

    • for 𝒜\mathcal{A} a topological space

    • and A=LConstSing𝒜A = LConst Sing \mathcal{A} its incarnation as a constant oo-stack in H=Sh (CartSp)\mathbf{H} = Sh_{\infty}(CartSp),

    the Hopkins-Singer differential cohomology with coefficients in 𝒜\mathcal{A} coincides with the differential cohomology with coefficients in AA in the (oo,1)-topos H\mathbf{H}, as defined there.

    Needs more attention, but I have to run now to get some breakfast…

    I am finally getting to brushing-up the entry on differential cohomology (which has been – of all entries! – woefully neglected).

    For the moment I have polished and considerably expanded the Idea section and brushed-up and commented the list of references.

    In particular I am splitting off an entry differential cohomology hexagon.

    I have added references, but upon saving and now upon viewing the entry, it throws the following error message:

      XML Parsing Error: mismatched tag. Expected: </div>.
      Line Number 545, Column 3:

    Apparently this is caused by some code that was there before, which got re-saved now with a stricter parser. But I haven’t found the problematic line yet…

    I have fixed it now. The problem came from the table of contents rendering; the problem was the use of a customised theorem name in the theorems attributed to Hopkins-Singer and Bunke-Schick, which caused the renderer to think that these theorems were sections. Unnumbered theorem environments were also being used. I have now changed the environments to numbered ones, and added the attributions to Hopkins-Singer and Bunke-Schick in a slightly different way which does not break things.

    Thanks for the pointer! I hadn’t know about this.

    Let’s add the author-entries you are requesting. Will do now…

    there is also the ambitious “hypothesis H” of Fiorenza–Sati–Schreiber [Sat18; FSS19; FSS20b] proposing that the CC-field in MM-theory is quantized using a differential refinement of Im(J)Im(J)-twisted stable cohomotopy instead.

    Doesn’t need that ’stable’.

    Speaking of which, I am taking the liberty of adding (here) pointer to Section 4.3 in

    where differential cohomology via \infty-sheaves is set up in the non-abelian generality that accomodates differential refinements of un-stable Cohomotopy theory.

    Yes, I was just sending them (hoping that makes sense) a comment (here) on the AT-dischord server
