They show us that Σ(A) is a simple model for the suspension in all these classical invariants.2 We would like to mention that Kassel constructed an isomorphism related to (1.4) but for ordinary algebras over a field and with cyclic homology replaced by bivariant cyclic cohomology; see [11, Theorem 3.1].

Therefore, when A = perf dg (X ), the above isomorphisms (1.3)-(1.9) suggest us that the dg category Σ(perf dg (X )) should be considered as the “noncommutative suspension” or “non-commutative delooping” of the scheme X .
