K-theory of stacks, often of geometric stacks such as differentiable stacks/Lie groupoids. Under mild assumptions equivalently the operator K-theory of their groupoid convolution algebras.
The twisted K-theory of geometric stacks $X$ assigns K-classes to maps $X \to \mathbf{B}^2 U(1)$ to the moduli 2-stack of circle 2-bundles.
We discuss two different but related definitions. The first
realizes the K-theory of a suitable Lie groupoid (a local quotient groupoid) as a class in the Grothendieck group of suitable equivariant vector bundles (Hilbert space bundles). The second
realizes it as the operator K-theory of the groupoid convolution algebra.
In the Properties-section below we discuss how both definitions are compatible.
For local quotient groupoids one can define their K-theory as, essentially, the Grothendieck group of equivariant vector bundles on the groupoid, or rather, in the twisted case, by equivalence classes of sections of Fredholm bundles. (…)
One can define the (twisted) K-theory of a Lie groupoid (equipped with a circle 2-bundle) to be the operator K-theory of its groupoid convolution algebra.
For $X$ a proper Lie groupoid, the two definition above agree. (TuXuLG 03, 4.6).
