Title:The structure of simple operator algebras
Seminar:GAP Seminar
Speaker:Nate Brown, Penn State
Abstract:
C*- and W*-algebras are closely related theories, in the same way that topology and measure theory are closely related. What? I know, that's nonsense. But I'll try to make sense of it and describe the surprising parallels that have emerged when we restrict attention to some of the most common and important examples: simple, amenable operator algebras.
