Title: The Cuntz semigroup---a critical component for classification?

Time/Date: 4:30-6:00, Wed. July 23, 2014

Room: 122

Abstract: The Cuntz semigroup has come up a number of times in connection with the question of classifying amenable (i.e., nuclear) C*-algebras. It is perhaps of interest to study this phenomenon, with a view to finding, possibly, further applications of this invariant.
