Operator algebras

Operator algebras is a fast expanding area of mathematics with remarkable applications in differential geometry, dynamical systems, statistical mechanics and quantum field theory. It is at the center of new approaches to the Riemann hypothesis and the standard model, and it forms a foundation for quantum information theory.

About the group

The research of the group in operator algebras at the University of Oslo has focus on diverse applications in harmonic analysis, dynamical systems, numerical approximation of spectra, quantum information theory, wavelet theory and noncommutative geometry of quantum groups.


Our C*-algebra seminar will usually take place on Wednesdays from 11 to 12 in room 108, N.H. Abel's House during the fall of 2018.

Coming Event

Winter school on "Connes' embedding problem and quantum information theory", January 7-11, 2019, at UiO. The school is organized by the groups in Operator Algebras at NTNU and UiO, and is a part of the project "Pure Mathematics in Norway, 2018-2022", supported by the Bergen Research Foundation and the Tromsø Research Foundation

Recent event

Workshop "Facets of irreversibility: inverse semigroups, groupoids and operator algebras", December 4-8, 2017.  Location: UiO (details available closer to the start of the workshop). Supported by The Research Council of Norway.
