I am starting an entry Poincaré duality algebra, but it still needs some attention

surely there are many other Poincaré duality algebras

• two more references on the $C^\ast$-case;

• remarks highlighting that the $C^\ast$-case is about duality in K-theory as opposed to in ordinary cohomology;

• a remark that for twisted groupoid convolution algebras the fact that the Poincaré duality is to the opposite algebra corresponds to keeping the same groupoid (up to equivalence) but inverting the twist

(this is no hard to see, but if anyone knows a place where this is remarked in the literature, I’d be grateful for a pointer.)

I have added at K-orientation and Umkehr maps discussion of push-forward in twisted K-theory.

Essentially the same discussion I have (with slight editorial changes) also copied to

Also added more related references to all these entries.
