On C*-algebras and their Cartan subalgebras
Analysis and Geometry Seminar
12th November 2020, 3:15 pm – 4:15 pm
Fry Building, 4th Floor Seminar Room
I will introduce the topic of C*-algebras, highlight the main results since its development, and then introduce the notion of a Cartan subalgebra and draw some important links to topological dynamics and geometric group theory. I will then talk about existence and uniqueness of Cartan subalgebras in certain direct limit C*-algebras.
