Title:Regularity properties for nuclear C*-algebras
Seminar:Noncommutative Geometry Seminar
Speaker:Stuart White, University of Glasgow
Abstract:
In the past few years a number of properties of nuclear C*-algebras have been identified which are all seen to be satisfied by those algebras which have been classified by the Elliott programme, and fail drastically for the exotic counter examples to classification produced in the 2000's. These `regularity' properties have various different flavours: topological, functional analytic, algebraic, and all correspond naturally to features of injective von Neumann algebras used by Connes in his work on injectivity and hyperfiniteness. In this talk, I'll discuss these properties and the connections between them, focusing on obtaining finite non-commutative covering dimension from tensorial stability. All necessary terminology will be introduced in the talk.
