Quantised Calculus in One Dimension and Applications

Dixmier traces and limit sets of quasi-Fuchsian groups

Edward McDonald (NSW)

Abstract: Alain Connes in 1994 provided a formula for integration against the Hausdorff measure on the limit set of a quasi-Fuchsian group in terms of a Dixmier trace. This talk discusses the formulation of this result and its proof.

Quasidiagonality of Nuclear C*-Algebras

Chris Linden (UIUC Math)

Abstract: Tikuisis, White, and Winter have shown that faithful traces on separable, nuclear C*-algebras which satisfy the UCT are quasidiagonal. As a corollary, the reduced group C*-algebra of an amenable group is quasidiagonal. I will discuss Schafhauser's recent proof of this theorem using the extension theory of C*-algebras.

A brief introduction to Banach lattices and multinormed spaces

Timur Oikberg

Abstract: We start by briefly introducing Banach lattices, and describing their properties. We then segue to multinormed spaces, which were introduced to obtain an abstract description of Banach lattices (cf. concrete vs. abstract operator spaces). Properties of multinormed spaces and their representations as subspaces of Banach lattices will be discussed. PS We will also briefly discuss organizational issues

Gradient Flows for Quantum Markov Semigroups

Li Gao   [email] (UIUC Math)

Abstract: A large number of classical evolution equations could be viewed as gradient flow in the 2-Wasserstein metric for certain functionals, and that when the functionals were uniformly convex along geodesics of this geometry, a host of functional inequalities such as logarithmic Sobolev inequality were consequently valid. In this talk, I will discuss the recent work of E. A. Carlen and J. Maas on extending this story to quantum Markov semigroups. They show that if an ergodic quantum Markov semigroup satisfies detailed balance condition, then in a noncommutative analog of 2-Wasserstein metric it is the gradient flow for the relative entropy with respect to the equilibrium state. If time permits, I will also mention the connection to functional inequalities.
