Title: Connes' bicentralizer problem for q-deformed Araki-Woods algebras

Time/Date: 4:45-6:15pm, Thursday, May 7, 2020.

Room: Online

Abstract: We prove that any q-deformed Araki-Woods algebra admits a maximal abelian subalgebra which is a range of a faithful normal conditional expectation. In the case of type III1, this means that these factors have trivial bicentralizers.
