Magnetic Bloch theory and noncommutative geometry
We present an interpretation of magnetic Bloch theory in terms of
noncommutative geometry by providing a ''vocabulary'' which allows
to formulate properties of magnetic Schr\"odinger operator in terms
As an application of this noncommutative version of Bloch theory we
derive a mathematical interpretation of the quantum Hall effect in
terms of noncommutative geometry. Namely, using the ''vocabulary''
of noncommutative geometry, we to construct a cyclic cocycle which
integrality is responsible for the quantization of Hall
conductivity. This construction is due to Kordyukov--Mathai--Shubin.
