Type III representations of the infinite symmetric group (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
Based on earlier results about the structure of the II$_1$ representations of the infinite symmetric group, we investigate its type III representations and the related inclusion of von Neumann algebras of type III.

$W^*$ Rigidity for actions of wreath product groups (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
The past 8 years have seen much progress in the classification of
actions of groups on measure spaces. Much of this is due to new powerful
techniques in operator algebras. We will survey some of these results
as well as the new operator algebra techniques. We will then give new
results concerning the classification of actions of wreath product groups.

Killing weeds with annular multiplicities $*10$ via quadratic tangles (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
In recent work with Morrison, Peters, and Snyder, we eliminate two
families of possible principal graphs with graph norms less than 5 using
techniques derived from Jones' work on quadratic tangles.

Strong solidity of factors from lattices in SO(n,1) and SU(n,1) (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
Generalizing techniques found in Ozawa and Popa,
``On a class of II$_1$ factors with at most one Cartan subalgebra, II''
(Amer. J. Math., to appear), we show that the group factors of ICC
lattices in SO(n,1) and SU(n,1), $n\\ge2$, are strongly solid. If
time permits, we will also discuss applications to $L^2$-rigidity.

Fixed Points in the Stone-Cech boundary of Groups (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
We discuss the class of discrete groups which admit fixed points under the adjoint action on the Stone-Cech boundary. Such groups have vanishing $L^2$-Betti numbers, and nonamenable ones fail to have property (AO).

Connes-Landi Deformation of Spectral Triples (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
We describe a way to deform spectral triples with a 2-torus action and a real deformation parameter, motivated by deformation of manifolds after Connes-Landi. Such deformations are shown to have naturally isomorphic K-theoretic invariants independent of the deformation parameter.

Nigel Higson (Pennsylvania State Univ.)
The Baum-Connes Conjecture and Group Representations (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
The Baum-Connes conjecture asserts a sort of duality between the reduced unitary dual of a group and (a variant of) the classifying space of the group. The conjectured duality occurs at the level of K-theory. For example, for free abelian groups it amounts to a K-theoretic form of Fourier-Mukai duality. The conjecture has well-known applications in topology and geometry, but it also resonates in various ways with Lie groups and representation theory. I'll try to indicate how this comes about, and then focus on a fairly new aspect of the relationship that develops some early ideas of Mackey.
