Samuel Coskey: Set theory and corona algebras

Boise State Set Theory Seminar
Monday, December 3 from 10:30–11:30am
Room MP 210

Speaker: Samuel Coskey
Title: Set theory and corona algebras


Operator algebras is an area of analysis where set theory has had a lot of impact in recent years. Corona algebras are a kind of quotient C*-algebra that are closely related to quotient structures found in set theory like P(omega)/Fin. In this talk I’ll introduce these terms, and then present some work of (and together with) Ilijas Farah on outer automorphisms of corona algebras.
