Unexpecteded Grassmannians in the Scanning Area

Cameron Rudd (UIUC Math)

Abstract: This talk will be a brief overview of a geometric corner of homotopy theory from the perspective of someone who doesn't know any homotopy theory. I will discuss spaces of embeddings, the scanning map and theorems of Barratt-Priddy-Quillen and Madsen-Weiss. Title is result of joint work with Hadrian Quan.

On Noncommutative Topological Spaces

Zhong-Jin Ruan   [email] (Department of Mathematics, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign)

Abstract: In this talk, we first introduce the definition of $C^*$-algebras. Then we explain why we can regard $C^*$-algebras as noncommutative topological spaces. Finally we show some examples (if time is available).

An $\ell_2$-proof of Gaboriau's theorem

Anton Bernshteyn (Illinois Math)

Abstract: In this episode of the Operator Algebras Learning Seminar, we will finally put everything together and prove Gaboriau's "treeings realize cost" theorem using Hilbert modules and von Neumann dimension.
