Free Analysis
June 19 to June 23, 2006
AIM Research Conference Center, Palo Alto, CA
Organizers:
Dimitri Shlyakhtenko and Dan Voiculescu
Workshop topics:
This workshop, sponsored by AIM and the NSF, will be devoted to the
non-commutative analysis underlying problems in areas related to
free probability theory. Typical examples of these are L2 questions
for free difference quotient derivations.
The topics of the workshop are:
* free entropy (the analog of entropy in free probability theory)
* L2 Betti numbers for von Neumann algebras;
* large deviations for random multi-matrix systems.
It is important to determine the right estimates or continuities
required by these problems. Bringing together people working in
von Neumann algebras and probability theory will offer an
opportunity to compare methods and to subject what is being tried
in one context to the test of its consequences in another one.
Application deadline:
March 19, 2006
