Erik Bédos will give a talk with title: On the Fourier-Stieltjes algebra of a C*-dynamical system

Abstract: When G is a discrete group, its Fourier-Stieltjes algebra B(G) may be described as the set of coefficient functions associated with unitary representations of G on Hilbert spaces. In a similar way, if Sigma=(A, G, alpha, sigma) is a unital discrete twisted C*-dynamical system, one may let the Fourier-Stieltjes algebra B(Sigma) consist of the functions from G x A into A that arise as coefficient functions of equivariant representations of Sigma on Hilbert A-modules. We will explain how B(Sigma) may be organized as an algebra with conjugation, and show that it may be represented as completely bounded multipliers on the full crossed product C*(Sigma). (This is also known to be true for the reduced crossed product). This is part of an ongoing project with Roberto Conti (Rome).

Franz Luef (NTNU) will give  a talk with title "Sigma-models solitons on noncommutative spaces"

Abstract: Results from time-frequency analysis and Gabor analysis allow the construction of new classes of sigma-model solitons over the Moyal plane and over noncommutative tori, taken as source spaces, with a target space made of two points. A natural action functional leads to self-duality equations for projections in the source algebra. Solutions, having non-trivial topological content, are constructed via suitable Morita duality bimodules. This is joint work with L. Dabrowski and G. Landi.

Bartosz K. Kwaśniewski (University of Southern Denmark, Odense) will talk on: Topological aperiodicity for product systems of C*-correspondences

Abstract:We introduce a semigroup of multivalued maps dual to a product system of $C^*$-correspondences over an Ore semigroup. Under a certain aperiodicity condition on the dual semigroup we obtain a uniqueness theorem and a simplicity criterion for the associated Cuntz-Pimsner algebra. These results generalize similar statements for crossed products by groups (R. J. Archbold, J. S. Spielberg) and Exel’s crossed products (R. Exel, A. Vershik). They also give interesting conditions for topological higher rank graphs, and apply to the new Cuntz $C^*$-algebra $\mathcal{Q}_\mathbb{N}$ arising from the `$ax+b$'-semigroup over natural numbers. (Based on joint work with Wojciech Szymański.)

Makoto Yamashita, Ochanomizu University, will give a talk with title: Drinfeld center and representation theory for monoidal categories

Abstract: Motivated by the recently found relation between central completely positive multipliers and the spherical unitary representations of the Drinfeld double for discrete quantum groups, we construct and analyze the representations of fusion algebra of rigid C*-tensor category from the unitary half-braidings. Through the correspondence of Drinfeld center and the generalized Longo-Rehren construction in subfactor theory, these representations are also related to Popa’s theory of correspondences and subfactors. This talk is based on joint work with Sergey Neshveyev.
