Sheaf theory and Paschke duality


Let X be a locally compact metrizable space. We show that the Paschke dual construction, which associates to a representation of C0(X) its commutant modulo locally compact operators, can be sheafified. We use this observation to simplify several constructions in analytic K-homology.
