Abel Symposia #1: Operator Algebrasby Ola Bratteli
Synopses & ReviewsPublisher Comments:The theme of the first Abel Symposium was operator algebras in a wide sense. In the last 40 years operator algebras have developed from a rather special discipline within functional analysis to become a central field in mathematics often described as "noncommutative geometry". It has branched out in several subdisciplines and made contact with other subjects. The contributions to this volume give a stateoftheart account of some of these subdisciplines and the variety of topics reflect to some extent how the subject has developed. This is the first volume in a prestigious new book series linked to the Abel prize.
Synopsis:The theme of the first Abel Symposium was operator algebras in a wide sense. In the last 40 years operator algebras have developed from a rather special discipline within functional analysis to become a central field in mathematics often described as noncommutative geometry (see for example the book NonCommutative Geometry by the Fields medalist Alain Connes). It has branched out in several subdisciplines and made contact with other subjects like for example mathematical physics, algebraic topology, geometry, dynamical systems, knot theory, ergodic theory, wavelets, representations of groups and quantum groups. Norway has a relatively strong group of researchers in the subject, which contributed to the award of the first symposium in the series of Abel Symposia to this group. The contributions to this volume give a stateoftheart account of some of these subdisciplines.
