Towards the ChernWeil homomormism in noncommutative differential geometry
Abstract
In this short review article we sketch some developments which should ultimately lead to the analogy of the ChernWeil homomorphism for principal bundles in the realm of noncommutative differential geometry. Principal bundles there should have Hopf algebras as structure `cogroups'. Since the usual machinery of Lie algebras, connection forms, etc\., just is not available in this setting, we base our approach on the FrölicherNijenhuis bracket.
