Abstract/Media

In this talk I want to describe the sort of spaces that arise in the compactification of Lie groups. Although these certainly have something closely resembling an `iterated structure' of the sort under discussion in this seminar there are some basic differences from the standard case as I shall try to indicate. I suggest that the solution to this conundrum is to broaden the definition. In this wider setting it still seems possible to construct an algebra of operators of the usual type although this has not yet been done. There are many unanswered questions here very much worthy of study.
