Hochschild cohomology commutes with adic completion

Liran Shaul

Vol. 10 (2016), No. 5, 1001–1029

For a flat commutative k-algebra A such that the enveloping algebra A kA is noetherian, given a finitely generated bimodule M, we show that the adic completion of the Hochschild cohomology module HHn(Ak,M) is naturally isomorphic to HHn(Âk,M̂). To show this, we make a detailed study of derived completion as a functor D(ModA) D(ModÂ) over a nonnoetherian ring A, prove a flat base change result for weakly proregular ideals, and prove that Hochschild cohomology and analytic Hochschild cohomology of complete noetherian local rings are isomorphic, answering a question of Buchweitz and Flenner. Our results make it possible for the first time to compute the Hochschild cohomology of k[[t1,,tn]] over any noetherian ring k, and open the door for a theory of Hochschild cohomology over formal schemes.
