Pronk, Dorette; Scull, Laura
Translation Groupoids and Orbifold Cohomology
We show that the bicategory of (representable) orbifolds and good maps is equivalent to the bicategory of orbifold translation groupoids and generalized equivariant maps, giving a mechanism for transferring results from equivariant homotopy theory to the orbifold category. As an application, we use this result to define orbifold versions of a couple of equivariant cohomology theories: K-theory and Bredon cohomology for certain coefficient diagrams.

Keywords:orbifolds, equivariant homotopy theory, translation groupoids, bicategories of fractions

Paterson, Alan L. T.
The Fourier Algebra for Locally Compact Groupoids
We introduce and investigate using Hilbert modules the properties of the {\em Fourier algebra} $A(G)$ for a locally compact groupoid $G$. We establish a duality theorem for such groupoids in terms of multiplicative module maps. This includes as a special case the classical duality theorem for locally compact groups proved by P. Eymard.

Keywords:Fourier algebra, locally compact groupoids, Hilbert modules,, positive definite functions, completely bounded maps
