Title:"C*-Algebras in Kirillov's Theory"
Seminar:Ph.D. Oral Comprehensive Examination
Speaker:Pichkitti Bannangkoon, Adviser: Nigel Higson, Penn State
Abstract Link:http://
Let G be a nilpotent Lie group with Lie algebra g. The Kirillov's theory says that there is a one-to-one correspondence between the coadjoint orbit g  = Ad  (G) and a collection of equivalence classes of irreducible unitary representations of G, denoted by Gb. The goal is to prove this theory by using C*-algebra. We de ne the new two C  -algebras A and B and then show that Ab = Gb and Bb = g  = Ad  (G): Then we complete the proof by showing that A = B.
