Derived Azumaya Algebras and Twisted K-theory

Topological K-theory of dg-categories is a localizing invariant of dg-categories over  \mathbb{C} taking values in the  \infty -category of  KU -modules. In this talk I describe a relative version of this construction; namely for X a quasi-compact, quasi-separated  \mathbb{C} -scheme I construct a functor valued in the  \infty -category of sheaves of spectra on  X(\mathbb{C}) , the complex points of X. For inputs of the form \operatorname{Perf}(X, A) where A is an Azumaya algebra over X, I characterize the values of this functor in terms of the twisted topological K-theory of  X(\mathbb{C}) . From this I deduce a certain decomposition, for  X a finite CW-complex equipped with a bundle  P of projective spaces over  X , of  KU(P) in terms of the twisted topological K-theory of  X  ; this is a topological analogue of a result of Quillen’s on the algebraic K-theory of Severi-Brauer schemes.
