Hochschild-Witt complex

Advances in Mathematics. 2019. Vol. 351. P. 33-95.

In a previous paper, we have defined polynomial Witt vectors functor from vector spaces over a perfect field k of positive characteristic p to abelian groups. In this paper, we use polynomial Witt vectors to construct a functorial Hochschild-
Witt complex WCH_∗(A) for any associative unital k-algebra A, with homology groups WHH∗(A). We prove that the group WHH_0(A) coincides with the group of non-commutative Witt vectors defined by Hesselholt, while if A is commutative, finitely generated, and smooth, the groups WHH_i(A) are naturally identified with the terms WΩ^i_A of the de Rham-
Witt complex of the spectrum of A.
