The notion of a gerbe was introduced by Jean Giraud in 1971 in the context of algebraic geometry following ideas of Grothendieck. In a more differential geometric setting, this notion is introduced if one lets $\mathcal H$ be a complex Hilbert space and takes $PU(\mathcal H)$ to denote the projective unitary group $U(\mathcal H)/S^1$. Then a gerbe over a topological space $X$ is a principal $PU(\mathcal H)$-bundle over $X$. The topological classification of gerbes over $X$ is given by the third integral cohomology group $H^3(X,\mathbb Z)$ and when $X$ is a topological group, this integral cohomology group can be related to the locally continuous third cohomology group of $X$. This is the object of study in the project under review but in the context of representation theory of Krichever-Novikov algebras. | |
