Fourteenth International Workshop
The statistics groups at the University of Oslo and the Norwegian University of Life Sciences invite all PhD-students and postdocs within statistics in the Oslo-region as well as their teachers and supervisors to a 2-days workshop.
Please note that participation is by invitation only. Note also that there is an official homepage of the Abel Symposium 2015.
The conference is part of a joint French-Norwegian conference series on curves and surfaces. In Norway previous meetings were held in Oslo 1988, Biri 1991, Ulvik 1994, Lillehammer 1997, Oslo 2000, Tromsø 2004, Tønsberg 2008, and Oslo 2012. In France the last meeting was in Paris 2014.

"On relating strong type theories and set theories"
Roberto Conti (La Sapienza, Rome) will give a talk with title "C*-algebras and Fourier theory"
Robert Yuncken (Univ. Clermont-Ferrand II, France) will give a talk with title: A groupoid approach to pseudodifferential operators
Abstract: Connes introduced the "tangent groupoid" of a manifold as a geometric device for linking a classical pseudodifferential operator to its symbol, yielding a novel proof of the Atiyah-Singer index theorem. Since then, numerous variations on the tangent groupoid have been produced, each adapted to a different class of pseudodifferential operators. In this talk we will consider the reverse problem: associating to a given tangent groupoid a pseudodifferential calculus. We shall show that the kernels of classical pseudodifferential operators are precisely the essentially homogeneous fibrewise distributions on Connes' tangent groupoid. This leads to a natural pseudodifferential calculus of subelliptic type on a manifold with a filtration on its Lie algebra of vector fields.

A Severi type theorem on surfaces in P^6
Welcome to the SECOND conference on Stochastics of Environmental and Financial Economics. The conference will bring together leading researchers in the fields of stochastic analysis and finance to discuss recent developments and challenges with an edge towards energy, environmental and financial markets.
The conference is also a celebration of professor Bernt Øksendal's 70th anniversary. On Thursday April 23 the program of the conference will mark this big event with a selected list of speakers.

Réamonn Ó Buachalla (IMPAN) will give a talk with title: Noncommutative Kähler structures on quantum homogeneous spaces
Building on the definition of a noncommutative complex structure for a general algebra A, I will introduce the notion of a noncommutative Kähler structure for A. In the special case where A is a quantum homogeneous space, I show that many of the fundamental results of classical Kähler geometry follow from the existence of such a structure: Hodge decomposition, Serre duality, the Hard Lefschetz theorem, the Kähler identities, and collapse of the Frölicher spectral sequence at the first page. We then apply these results to Heckenberger and Kolb's differential calculus for quantum projective space, and show that they have cohomology groups of at least classical dimension. Time permitting, I will also discuss the relationship of this work to Connes proposal to study positive Hochschild cocycles as a starting point for noncommutative complex geometry, and Fröchlich, Grandjean, and Recknagel's definition of a Kähler spectral tuple.
Eduard Ortega, NTNU, will give a talk with title: Cuntz-Krieger uniqueness theorems
Abstract: I will make a little survey about Cuntz-Krieger uniqueness theorems and how they help to the study of the ideal structure of the rings to which one can apply them. In certain classes of (C*-)algebras this is described as topologically freeness or condition (L). However they are important classes of rings for which are not known Cuntz-Krieger type theorems. I will present a class of rings, that generalize Leavitt path algebras and Passman crossed products, for which I can totally characterize the Cuntz-Krieger uniqueness theorem.

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).
