Classical Morita Equivalence defines an Euler class for modules that generalizes the Euler characteristic for spaces. Using this understanding of the Euler class, fundamental properties of the class become accessible. Among many choices, in this talk I'll focus on compatibility of the Euler class with a familiar pairing on Hochschild homology since it also allows the exploration for different forms of duality.
