A correspondence between dynamical systems and separated graphs II

Abstract: In 1992 Herman, Putnam and Skau established (following the work of Versik) a bijective correspondence between essentially simple ordered Bratteli diagrams and essentially minimal dynamical systems. This correspondence enable the authors to study a particular subfamily of C*-crossed products (i.e. C(X) x Z given by a single homeomorphism f : X -> X; here X is the Cantor set). In these 2-session seminars I would like to present the work obtained so far in extending the above correspondence between dynamical systems (not necessarily minimal) and (a special class of) separated graph algebras. In the first session I will introduce the basic definitions, concepts and known results which will be used throughout the 2-session seminar. In the second session I will concentrate on presenting the work obtained so far, which is joint work in progress with P. Ara and M. S. Adamo.

Villadsen Algebras: Projections and Vector Bundles

Abstract:

Les àlgebres de Villadsen són un tipus de C*-àlgebres que van ser utilitzades per trobar contraexemples a la conjectura de Classificació d’Elliott. Per provar que la conjectura fallava van utilitzar que l’ordre de les projeccions sobre espais topologics s’associa a l’ordre entre els vector bundles d’aquests. Així, en les àlgebres de Villadsen s’utilitza fortament la teoria de vector bundles per tal de construir l’exemple dessitjat. En aquesta xerrada explicarem una mica la història de la classificació de C*-àlgebres, i donarem algunes pinzellades sobre com utilitzar la teoria de vector bundles i les classes de Chern al món de les C*-àlgebres.
