Title:"Covering Dimension for Nuclear C*-algebras"
Seminar:Ph.D. Oral Comprehensive Examination
Speaker:Hung-Chang Liao, Adviser: Nate Brown, Penn State
Abstract:
The classical covering dimension of a topological space can be defined through a certain decomposability of open coverings. The noncommutative version (for nuclear C*-algebras) is defined in terms of uniformly decomposable completely positive approximations. In this talk, I will begin with some background in approximation properties related to nuclear C*-algebras, and then discuss the connection between nuclearity and dimension of topological spaces.
