Description

This workshop introduces graduate students and other scientists to the exciting area of Operator Algebras. It will feature three series of introductory lectures and a number of one-hour lectures on recent research topics followed by informal discussions. The main lecture series will be: Richard V. Kadison: The Theory of Operator Algebras - A Survey Mihai Pimsner: Introduction to K-theory for Operator Algebras Antony Wassermann/Valerio Toledano Laredo: Operator Algebras and Conformal Field Theory In addition, Fields Medalist Vaughan Jones will present several introductory lectures.
