During the past 25 years there has been a significant activity constructing and analyzing C*-algebras and C*-algebraic dynamical systems from semigroups of number theoretic origin. Among these are the semigroup C*-algebras of the affine semigroup of the ring of algebraic integers in a number field, which are closely related to the Bost-Connes systems giving a thermodynamic interpretation of the Riemann and Dirichlet zeta-functions. The K-theory of the associated boundary quotients has been computed and also the phase transition of equilibrium states at low temperature has been exhibited via a natural parametrization. There is an intriguing, and still not understood, parallel in that the same C*-algebra lies at the heart of the solution of both problems. The goal of the master class is to introduce the participants to these and related topics lying at the intersection of several branches of mathematics.

 

The master class is a part of the project "Pure Mathematics in Norway, 2018-2022", supported by the Bergen Research Foundation and the Tromsø Research Foundation.

A winter workshop in numerical methods for PDEs on the occasion of Ragnar Winther’s 70th birthday

Connes' embedding problem is one of the long standing open problems in Operator Algebras. Since it was raised in 1976, several equivalent formulations, seemingly unrelated to it, have been found, also in other areas of mathematics. In particular, it is equivalent to the (weak) Tsirelson problem in Quantum Information Theory

The aim of the winter school is to upgrade the knowledge of all operator algebraists at NTNU and UiO, in particular master and PhD students, on these important topics and to review some of the recent developments.  

The school is a part of the project "Pure Mathematics in Norway, 2018-2022", supported by the Bergen Research Foundation and the Tromsø Research Foundation.

A conference in algebraic geometry on the occasion of Geir Ellingsrud’s 70th birthday

Time and place: Dec. 3, 2018Dec. 7, 2018, Clarion Collection Hotel Gabelshus
We are happy to invite you to the conference "Mapping problems and Complex manifolds in projective spaces" in Oslo from 3 to 7 December 2018. This conference is an opportunity for researchers in active and interacting fields of several complex variables, complex dynamics and holomorphic/algebraic curves to discuss about new achievements and current topics of interest. We concentrate in particular in topics such as foliations, embedding of curves in affine spaces and related topics in moduli spaces, Andersen - Lempert theory, Oka theory, and complex dynamics.  
 
The venue for the conference is Clarion Collection Hotel Gabelshus, at the address: Gabels gate 16, 0272 Oslo. It is a beautiful hotel in the centre of Oslo.

Noncommutative geometry aims to use geometric insight in studying phenomena that are beyond the reach of classical geometry and analysis, using functional analysis and algebra as primary rigorous tools. Over the years it has been applied to a variety of problems, from index theory for foliations, to the Novikov conjecture, quantum Hall effect, standard model, analysis on quantum groups, and many more. The goal of the one-day seminar is to use the opportunity provided by the visit of Adam Rennie from Australia to report on recent advances in the area. Another goal is to strengthen ties between the operator algebra groups in Oslo and Trondheim.

The seminar is part of the project "Pure Mathematics in Norway, 2018-2022", supported by the Bergen Research Foundation and the Tromsø Research Foundation.
