International Summer School on Operator Algebras and Applications

Sunday, June 14, 2009 - 10:00pm to Friday, June 19, 2009 - 9:59pm

Operator Algebras is presently one of the most active areas of Mathematics. C*-algebras and operator algebras play crucial roles in diverse areas of Mathematics and applications, particularly in Non-Commutative Geometry, Mathematical Physics and Numerical Analysis. The main goal of this Summer School is to present developments in operator algebras, function algebras and applications and to promote research exchanges in these topics.
The school is being organized by the Research Center for Functional Analysis and Applications, CEAF, at Instituto Superior Técnico, Universidade Técnica de Lisboa, Portugal and it will be held from June 15 to June 19, 2009. It consists of four short courses covering the following topics:
◦ Crossed product C*-algebras
Christopher Phillips, University of Oregon
◦ Regularity conditions for Banach function algebras Joel Feinstein, University of Nottingham
◦ Spatial discretization of C*-algebras Steffen Roch, TU Darmstadt
◦ C*-algebras: Hilbert Modules, Index Theory, K-Homology
Vladimir Manuilov, Moscow State University
