Cyclification of Orbifolds

Abstract. Inertia orbifolds homotopy-quotiented by rotation of geometric loops play a fundamental role not only in ordinary cyclic cohomology, but more recently in constructions of equivariant quasi-elliptic cohomology and generally of transchromatic characters on generalized cohomology theories. Nevertheless, existing discussion of such cyclified stacks has been relying on ad-hoc component presentations with intransparent and unverified stacky homotopy type.
Following our previous formulation of transgression of cohomological charges (“double dimensional reduction”), we explain how cyclification of $\infty$-stacks is a fundamental and elementary base change construction over moduli stacks in cohesive higher topos theory (cohesive homotopy type theory). We prove that Ganter-Huan's extended inertia groupoid used to define equivariant quasi-elliptic cohomology is indeed a model for this intrinsically defined cyclification of orbifolds, and we show that cyclification implements transgression in group cohomology in general, and hence in particular the transgression of degree-4 twists of equivariant quasi-elliptic cohomology to degree-3 twists of orbifold K-theory on the cyclified orbifold.
As an application, we show that the universal shifted integral 4-class of equivariant 4-Cohomotopy theory on ADE-orbifolds induces the Platonic 4-twist of ADE-equivariant quasi-elliptic cohomology; and we close by explaining how this should relate to elliptic genera of the M5-brane, under our previously formulated Hypothesis H.
