Ilijas Farah: Necessary applications of set theory to operator algebras
Mathematics Colloquium, Hebrew University
Thursday, 21/Nov/2013, 14:30
Speaker: Ilijas Farah
Title: Necessary applications of set theory to operator algebras
Abstract: Connections between set theory and operator algebras in the past century were few and sparse, although von Neumann was an important figure in the early history of both areas and some key midcentury developments in descriptive set theory occurred within an operatoralgebraic context in the work of Mackey, Glimm, and Effros. continue reading…
