Bayindir, O. ORCID: 0000-0002-6087-0003 (2023). Extension DGAs and topological Hochschild homology. Algebraic and Geometric Topology, 23(2), pp. 895-932. doi: 10.2140/agt.2023.23.895


We study differential graded algebras (DGAs) that arise from ring spectra through the extension of scalars functor. Namely, we study DGAs whose corresponding Eilenberg–Mac Lane ring spectrum is equivalent to HZ∧E for some ring spectrum E. We call these DGAs extension DGAs. We also define and study this notion for E∞ DGAs.

The topological Hochschild homology (THH) spectrum of an extension DGA splits in a convenient way. We show that formal DGAs with nice homology rings are extension, and therefore their THH groups can be obtained from their Hochschild homology groups in many cases of interest. We also provide interesting examples of DGAs that are not extension.

In the second part, we study properties of extension DGAs. We show that, in various cases, topological equivalences and quasi-isomorphisms agree for extension DGAs. From this, we obtain that dg Morita equivalences and Morita equivalences also agree in these cases.
