Iterated traces in $2$–categories and Lefschetz theorems

Jonathan A Campbell and Kate Ponto

Algebraic & Geometric Topology 22 (2022) 815–879
Abstract

While not obvious from its initial motivation in linear algebra, there are many contexts where iterated traces can be defined. We prove a very general theorem about iterated 2–categorical traces. We show that many Lefschetz-type theorems in the literature are consequences of this result and the new perspective we provide allows for immediate spectral generalizations.
