Title:Dimension and decomposition
Seminar:GAP Seminar
Speaker:Wilhelm Winter, University of Nottingham, UK
Abstract:
We revisit the notion of covering dimension for a topological space, and explain how it can be taken to a noncommutative framework. One obtains several reasonable versions of noncommutative covering dimension, which play fundamental roles in various parts of C*-algebra theory. There are striking applications to the classification of minimal dynamical systems, as well as promising connections to coarse geometry.
