The Complexity of Isomorphism Classes of Banach Spaces

Mary Angelica Tursi (UIUC Math)

Abstract: It is commonly known that separable Banach spaces embed isometrically into the separable space $C(\Delta)$, where $\Delta$ is the Cantor set. Taking the Effros-Borel structure $\mathcal F(C(\Delta))$, we can then view the collection of separable Banach spaces as a Borel subset $\mathcal B \subseteq \mathcal F(C(\Delta))$ and consider the existence of an isomorphism between Banach spaces to be an equivalence relation on $\mathcal B$. For this expository talk, I will present some basic descriptive set theoretic techniques used to determine the complexity of isomorphism equivalence classes, in particular the Borel case of the class for $\ell_2$, and a non-Borel analytic case with Pelczynski’s universal space $\mathcal U$.

Operations in complex K theory

William Balderrama (UIUC)

Abstract: In nice cases, the correct algebraic setup can exert a large amount of control over a geometric situation. I will illustrate this with the example of complex K theory.
