Langlands functorality in $K$-theory for $C^*$-algebras. I. Base change

We compare representations of the real and complex general linear groups and special linear groups in the framework of $K$-theory, using base change on $L$-parameters. We introduce a notion of base change on $K$-theory involving the fixed point set of the reduced dual of a complex group. For general linear groups, we prove that the base change map is compatible with the Connes–Kasparov isomorphism.

Keywords: $K$-theory, local Langlands correspondence, base change, reduced group $C^*$-algebra, tempered representation
