Abstract

We compare twisted equivariant $K$-theory of $SL_{3}{\mathbb{Z}}$ with untwisted equivariant $K$-theory of a central extension $St_3{\mathbb{Z}}$. We compute all twisted equivariant $K$-theory groups of $SL_{3}{\mathbb{Z}}$, and compare them with previous work on the equivariant $K$-theory of $BSt_3{\mathbb{Z}}$ by Tezuka and Yagita.

Using a universal coefficient theorem by the authors, the computations explained here give the domain of Baum–Connes assembly maps landing on the topological $K$-theory of twisted group $C^*$-algebras related to $SL_{3}{\mathbb{Z}}$, for which a version of $KK$-theoretic duality studied by Echterhoff, Emerson, and Kim is verified.
