The 4th Workshop on
Operator Algebras
and its Application

School of Mathematics, IPM
 

Part 1
December 6-8, 2016
(Azar 16-18, 1395)
 Tehran, Iran

 

Objective:
 

This is the Fourth workshop in the series of "Operator Algebras and its Applications". In January 2014, we successfully organized the first workshop with theme "Quantum Groups and Harmonic Analysis". In January 2015 we had a workshop focused on "Actions and Crossed Products". In January 2016 had a workshop on "C*-Dynamics". This year our workshop has two parts: the one in December 2016 focuses on "Classification of C*-algebras" and the other one in January 2017 is mostly on "Approximation Properties of C*-algebras". (You can see the information about part 2 in below.)

 

The goal is to bring home new advances in modern analysis and give postgraduate students an opportunity to meet well known researchers in the field of operator algebras.

 

Each workshop is endowed with a series of mini courses, and we also cover similar topics in our weekly seminars in IPM.


Organizers:
 
Massoud Amini (IPM and Tarbiat Modares University)
