Hochschild homology and cohomology of associative algebras is a classical topic which is pursued on its own as well as for its connection with algebraic topology, homotopy theory and K-theory. Cyclic homology is connected to noncommutative geometry and was initiated independently by Connes and Tsygan. In the world of free loop spaces, both of these become connected in a nice manner.
A further refinement of Hochschild homology is topological Hochschild homology while the topological cyclic homology does the same for ordinary cyclic homology. On the one hand, cyclic homology (if these are arising from spaces) are related to S1-equivariant homology of spaces admitting a circle action. The techniques devel- oped and used in these topics are useful. In the AIS, we plan to study Hochschild
