Abhik Ghosh (Dept. of Biostatistics, UiO) will give a seminar in the lunch area, 8th floor Niels Henrik Abels hus at 14:15.

We invite you to a one-day workshop celebrating Professor Bent Natvig's 70th anniversary. Invited speakers will present recent developments in some of the areas where Bent has made significant contributions, including reliability theory and mathematical statistics.

Bent Natvig has, since 1986, been a professor of mathematical statistics at the Department of Mathematics. He is the author of a long list of important papers published in top-ranked scientific journals as well as the recent book entitled "Multistate Systems Reliability Theory with Applications" (John Wiley & Sons). At our department, Bent has taken the leading role in the area of reliability theory. On August 1 this year, he turns 70.

Abstract: In a recent work with R. Conti (La Sapienza Univ., Rome), we have introduced a notion of positive definiteness for certain functions associated to a (unital, discrete) C*-dynamical system. We will sketch the proof of a Gelfand-Raikov type theorem for such functions and use it to construct complete positive maps on the full and the reduced C*-crossed products of the system. We will also explain how a natural definition of amenability for C*-dynamical systems emerges from our work.

Abstract: The talk will be on positive linear maps of the n x n matrices into itself, a topic which has become quite popular in quantum information theory. The maps closest to physics are the completely positive ones. I´ll discuss an approximation by a completely positive map to a positive map via the trace , called the “structural physical approximation”, the SPA of the map. Much of the talk will circle around a counter example to a conjecture on the SPA.

Sofia Tirabassi (UiB), gives the Seminar in Algebra and Algebraic Geometry:

**Title: Characterization of product of theta divisors**

Abstract: This is a joint work with Z. Jiang and M. Lahoz. We give a new cohomological characterization of product of theta divisors in principally polarized abelian varieties and we completely classify n-varieities with of maximal albanese dimension and with irregularity 2n-1 and euler characteristic 1, extending lower dimensional results of Hacon--Pardini. I will do my best to keep the first hour enjoyable and entertaining also for graduate students with background in algebraic geometry (and related areas).

Abstract: In the classification program for C*-algebras some of the usual assumptions put on the algebras are that they are simple or have at most have finitely many ideals. We often also want algebras that have real rank 0. In this talk we will discuss how to classify certain graph algebras with uncountably many ideals and without real rank 0. There will be examples and applications. Joint work with S. Eilers, G. Restorff, and E. Ruiz

Abstract: There are many interesting examples of groups acting on trees, arising in various fields (e.g. combinatorial group theory, number theory, geometry). When a group acts on a tree, it necessarily also acts on the boundary of the tree, a (totally disconnected) compact Hausdorff space. The C*-algebras obtained from the crossed product construction include many fundamental examples. I will describe methods for analyzing such crossed products, developed in joint work with Nathan Brownlowe, Alex Mundey, David Pask and Anne Thomas.

Abstract: In this follow-up talk, I shall outline how the boundary quotient diagram may be useful for K-theoretic considerations. We start with the diagram within the context of integral dynamics, and then speculate about potentially promising directions of generalizations.

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.
