Dirac Operators on Quantum Projective Spaces



We construct a family of self-adjoint operators DN, \({N\in{\mathbb Z}}\) , which have compact resolvent and bounded commutators with the coordinate algebra of the quantum projective space \({{\mathbb C}{\rm P}^{\ell}_q}\) , for any  ≥ 2 and 0 < q < 1. They provide 0+-dimensional equivariant even spectral triples. If is odd and \({N=\frac{1}{2}(\ell+1)}\) , the spectral triple is real with KO-dimension 2 mod 8.
