UK Virtual Operator Algebras Seminar: Amenability via ultraproduct embeddings for II_1 factors
Scott Atkinson (University of California, Riverside)
Thursday 30th April, 2020 16:00-16:45 Contact Mike.Whittaker@glasgow.ac.uk for Zoom info
The property of amenability is a cornerstone in the study and classification of II_1 factor von Neumann algebras. Likewise, ultraproduct analysis is an essential tool in the subject. We will discuss the history, recent results, and open questions on characterizations of amenability for separable II_1 factors in terms of embeddings into ultraproducts.
