Noncommutative Analysis

Talk: CP-semigroups and dilations, subproduct systems and superproduct systems

Last Friday I gave a talk at the Athens Functional Analysis Seminar on my joint paper with Michael Skeide, which is to appear in Dissertationes Mathematicae. This time I tried to emphasize the appearance of Morita equivalence in our work.

Workshop in honour of Paul Muhly: Noncommutative Analysis at the Technion, June 2022

Registration form for online participation is now available on the workshop website. Please note: invited in-person participants need to feel out the form that they received via email (because that form has places to fill in important in-person information like date of arrival and dietary restrictions).

Noncommutative Analysis

The conference Noncommutative Analysis at the Technion, NCAT 2022, will be held in June 26-July 1, 2022, in honour of Paul Muhly for his research contributions and his leadership. The list of speakers is by invitation only, but it is likely that this workshop will be hybrid, so stay tuned!

A First Course in Functional Analysis – a second, corrected printing is now available

And now, a word from our sponsor (me):

My textbook for undergraduate functional analysis – A First Course in Functional Analysis – is now available in a second, corrected printing. There were several annoying mistakes or typos that I found about during the five years since it appeared (here is a list of the most substantial corrections). If I understand correctly how this works: people who have access to the e-book through their library will get to the corrected version. If your library does not yet have hard copies, then now would be a great time to order them. Hard copies – I mean real books – are the best! Just take a look at it. If you are teaching a course in functional analysis you can ask the publisher for an inspection copy. Here is the preface of the book if you want to get a feeling of what kind of book it.

Great new set of lecture notes on the Drury-Arveson space

A few days ago Michael Hartz uploaded a very nice set of lectures notes on the Drury-Arveson space, called “An Invitation to the Drury-Arveson Space“. These notes are an expanded written version of the mini-course that he gave in the Focus Program on Analytic Function Spaces, which I blogged about a few months ago. I highly recommend these notes, they seem to me the best introduction to the subject (yes, even better than my own survey which is almost eight years old, and definitely better than my old series of blog posts, which I won’t even link to). If somebody wants to start working in the Drury-Arveson today, this seems like the right place to start.
