Methods of Noncommutative Geometry in Analysis and Topology
Month: October 2014
Date: October 6--9
Name: Methods of Noncommutative Geometry in Analysis and Topology
Location: Leibniz University Hannover, Hannover, Germany.
The event will gather experts in the noncommutative geometry community, with Kasparov's bivariant K-theory as the unifying theme. A focal point of the workshop will be the Baum-Connes conjecture, which for three decades has been a central problem in this field, bringing together geometry, topology, and analysis. This has lead to both new fundamental ideas as well as interactions with other fields of mathematics. Notable applications encompass index theory, mathematical physics, dynamical systems and the classification of C*-algebras. There will be a poster session to promote the interaction between junior researchers and experts in the field.
