This volume reflects the proceedings of the U.S.-Japan seminar on Operator Algebras and Applications held at Kyushu University (Japan). Contributors to the volume are leading researchers in the theory of operator algebras.

Readers will find a variety of current research topics reflecting the state of the art of the subject. Topics covered include the classification of \(C^*\)-algebras by \(K\)-theoretical data and related topics, a detailed study on various classes of \(C^*\)-algebras, subfactor analysis and related topics, free probability theory, and more. The material is suitable for graduate students and researchers interested in operator algebras and their applications.

Volumes in this series are freely available electronically 5 years post-publication.

Published for the Mathematical Society of Japan by Kinokuniya, Tokyo, and distributed worldwide, except in Japan, by the AMS.


Graduate students and research mathematicians interested in operator algebras and their applications.
