Operator Algebras and Their Applications II - Peter A Fillmore and James A Mingo

The study of operator algebras, which grew out of von Neumann's work in the 1920s and the 1930s on modelling quantum mechanics, has in recent years experienced tremendous growth and vitality. This growth has resulted in significant applications in other areas--both within and outside mathematics. The field was a natural candidate for a 1994-1995 program year in Operator Algebras and Applications held at The Fields Institute for Research in the Mathematical Sciences.

This volume contains a selection of papers that arose from the seminars and workshops of the program. Topics covered include the classification of amenable \(C^*\)-algebras, the Baum-Connes conjecture, \(E_0\) semigroups, subfactors, E-theory, quasicrystals, and the solution to a long-standing problem in operator theory: Can almost commuting self-adjoint matrices be approximated by commuting self-adjoint matrices?

Titles in this series are co-published with the Fields Institute for Research in Mathematical Sciences (Toronto, Ontario, Canada).


Graduate students, research mathematicians, and physicists interested in functional analysis.
