Equivariant Fredholm Modules for the Full Quantum Flag Manifold of SU_q(3)

We introduce $C^*$-algebras associated to the foliation structure of a quantum flag manifold. We use these to construct $\{SL}_q(3,\{C})$-equivariant Fredholm modules for the full quantum flag manifold $X_q = \{SU}_q(3)/T$ of $\{SU}_q(3)$, based on an analytical version of the Bernstein-Gelfand-Gelfand complex. As a consequence we deduce that the flag manifold $ X_q $ satisfies Poincaré duality in equivariant $ KK $-theory. Moreover, we show that the Baum-Connes conjecture with trivial coefficients holds for the discrete quantum group dual to $\{SU}_q(3)$.
