16 April 2014 Harvard Logic Colloquium

Ilijas Farah
York University
"Logic and Operator Algebras"

Abstract: 'Operator algebras' are subalgebras of the algebra of bounded operators on a complex Hilbert space. They are usually in addition assumed to be self-adjoint and norm-closed (C*-algebras) or closed in weak operator topology (von Neumann algebras). Connections between logic and operator algebras in the past century were few and sparse. This has changed radically in the recent years. Several diverse tools from logic were successfully applied to solve long-standing problems in operator algebras and new, purely logical, tools had to be developed to this effect. I will survey some of the most recent developments.

Please not that 2 Arrow Street is a card access building. If you have a Harvard ID you can access the building. If you do not then please arrive just before 4 (which you should do anyway, since that's when the talk starts) -- we will have someone at the door from 3:45-4:00.
