Abstract: In this follow-up talk, we shall review the results on the structure of KMS states from the case studies of - the ax+b semigroup over the natural numbers (Laca-Raeburn and Brownlowe-an Huef-Laca-Raeburn), - integer dilation matrices (Laca-Raeburn-Ramagge), - self-similar actions (Laca-Raeburn-Ramagge-Whittaker), and - Baumslag-Solitair monoids (Clark-an Huef-Raeburn) from the perspective of the boundary quotient diagram for the respective right LCM semigroups. We will also discuss (to some extent) similarities and differences of the proofs among these cases.

Abstract: For the ax+b semigroup over the natural numbers, which is known to be part of a quasi-lattice ordered group, Laca and Raeburn considered its Nica-Toeplitz algebra and its Cuntz-Nica-Pimsner algebra, with a special appeal to nice presentations by generators and relations as well as the structure of KMS states for a natural dynamics. Shortly thereafter, Brownlowe-an Huef-Laca-Raeburn showed that there are two intermediate quotients between the Nica-Toeplitz algebra and the Cuntz-Nica-Pimsner algebra that exhibit interesting structural properties, especially with regards to KMS states. Since then, analogous quotients have been considered (partly in disguise) in a growing list of case studies on the KMS state structure, e.g. for dilation matrices, self-similar actions, and Baumslag-Solitair monoids. Somewhat surprisingly, all these case studies can be viewed from the perspective of semigroup C*-algebras of right LCM semigroups, and in this talk, I shall describe a unifying perspective on such boundary quotient diagrams. Thereby several questions concerning the general structure of right LCM semigroups are raised.

Abstract:

Let X=Spec(R) be a smooth affine variety and let Y be a closed subvariety corresponding to an ideal I in R. Finding a set of generators for I is in general a very hard problem, even in the case where X is an affine space over a field k. However, an easy application of Nakayama’s lemma shows that the number n of generators of I is at least the number m of generators of its conormal bundle and at most m+1. We will show how to actually determine when n=m using homotopical and cohomological methods, answering in particular a long standing conjecture of Murthy.

Abstract: As has been observed by many authors, the Drinfeld double of the q-deformation of a compact Lie group can be regarded as a quantization of the complexification of the original Lie group. Using this point of view, I will discuss irreducible unitary representations of these Drinfeld doubles.

Abstract: We discuss a way of constructing noncommutative projective manifolds as inductive and projective limits, generalizing the so-called Berezin quantization for ordinary compact Kähler manifolds. We first review the physical motivation for Berezin quantization and then discuss how the restriction to commutative manifolds limits the use of this quantization. We will also outline how our more general construction appears naturally in the study of the long-time limit of open quantum systems.
