2024/07 | 19. Special Week on Operator Algebras, 29. July to 2. August, 2024, ECNU, Shanghai, China. | Pure C*-algebras## AbstractIn his seminal investigation of Z-stability for simple, nuclear C*-algebras, Winter introduced the notion of (m,n)-pureness with m and n quantifying comparison and divisibility properties in the Cuntz semigroup, and he showed that every simple C*-algebra that has locally finite nuclear dimension and that is (m,n)-pure for some m and n is Z-stable.Combined with the result of Roerdam that every Z-stable C*-algebra is pure (that is, (0,0)-pure, which means that its Cuntz semigroup has the strongest comparison and divisibility properties), this provides a situation where (m,n)-pureness implies pureness. In a recent paper with R. Antoine, F. Perera and L. Robert, we removed the assumption of locally finite nuclear dimension and showed that every simple, (m,n)-pure C*-algebra is pure. In this work we generalize the result even further by showing that (m,n)-pureness implies pureness in general. As an application we show that every C*-algebra with the Global Glimm Property and finite nuclear dimension is pure. This is joint work with R. Antoine, F. Perera, and E. Vilalta |

2023/09 | Workshop on Operator Algebras and Applications: Symmetry and Structure, 18-22. September 2023, Fields Institute, Toronto, Canada. | Prime and semiprime ideals in C*-algebras 18. September 2023 ## AbstractNonclosed ideals of bounded operators play a prominent role in the theory of singular traces as developed by Dixmier, Connes and many others, and the Calkin correspondence is a powerful tool that can be used to answer many questions about nonclosed ideals in this context. For general C*-algebras, a systematic study of nonclosed ideals was initiated by Pedersen in the late 1960s, but much less is known in this broader setting.We show that a not necessarily closed ideal in a C*-algebra is semiprime (that is, an intersection of prime ideals) if and only if it is closed under roots of positive elements. Quite unexpectedly, it follows that prime and semiprime ideals in C*-algebras are automatically self-adjoint. This can be viewed as a generalization of the well-known result that closed ideals in C*-algebras are semiprime and self-adjoint. This is joint work with Eusebio Gardella and Kan Kitamura. |

2023/09 | Set Theory Seminar, Fields Institute, Toronto, Canada. | Domains and C*-algebras 15. September 2023 ## AbstractA domain is a partially ordered set that is order-theoretically complete (every increasing net has a supremum) and with a good notion of approximation. A C*-algebra is a self-adjoint, closed subalgebra of bounded, linear operators on a Hilbert space.In 1978, Cuntz showed that there is a connection between these concepts: The comparison theory of positive elements in a C*-algebra can be encoded in a partially ordered semigroup -- nowadays called the Cuntz semigroup of a C*-algebra. In 2008, Coward-Elliott-Ivanescu showed that the Cuntz semigroup is a domain. In this talk, I will give an introduction to domains and Cuntz semigroups and then discuss the available categorical notion of ultraproducts, an ad-hoc concept of the Löwenheim-Skolem condition and the search for an underlying model theory. |

2022/11 | Oberseminar Analysis, Kiel 15. October 2022 | Das Erzeugerproblem für C*-Algebren |

2022/10 | North British Functional Analysis Seminars 28-29 October 2022, Belfast, UK | The generator problem of C*-algebras ## AbstractThe generator problem asks to determine, for a given C*-algebra, its minimal number of generators. In particular, one wants to know if every separable, simple C*-algebra is generated by a single element. The generator problem was originally asked for von Neumann algebras, and Kadison included it as no. 14 of his famous list of 20 "Problems on von Neumann algebras". The problem remains open, most notably for the reduced free group C*-algebras and the free group factors.I will first give an overview on the generator problem and then present some recent new results. Most interestingly, we will see a strong solution to the generator problem for separable, simple, classifiable C*-algebras: They are not merely singly generated but they contain a dense set of generators. The zero-product structure of C*-algebras ## AbstractIt is well known that every C*-algebra is determined by its linear and multiplicative structure: Two C*-algebras are *-isomorphic if and only if they admit a multiplicative, linear bijection.We study if, instead of the whole multiplicative structure, it suffices to record when two elements have zero product. While it is not clear if every C*-algebra is determined this way, we obtain many positive results. In particular, two unital, simple C*-algebras are *-isomorphic if and only if they admit a linear bijection that preserves zero products. This is joint work with Eusebio Gardella. |

2022/06 | Canadian Abstract Harmonic Analysis Symposium (CAHAS), Banff (online talk) | Rigidity results for Lp-operator algebras ## AbstractAn Lp-operator algebra is a Banach algebra that admits an isometric representation on some Lp-space (p not 2). Given such an algebra A, we show that it contains a unique maximal sub-C*-algebra, which we call its C*-core. The C*-core is automatically abelian, and its spectrum is naturally equipped with an inverse semigroup of partial homeomorphisms. We call the associated groupoid of germs the Weyl groupoid of A.The Weyl groupoid contains information about the internal dynamics of the algebra A, and in some some cases it is a complete invariant. For example, given a topologically free action on a compact space, the Weyl groupoid of the reduced Lp-crossed product is simply the transformation groupoid of the action. This leads to strong rigidity results for reduced groupoid algebras and reduced crossed products. We use our results to answer a question of Phillips: The Lp-analog of the Cuntz algebra is not isomorphic to its tensor square. (Joint work with Yemon Choi and Eusebio Gardella.) |

2022/06 | Hanseatic Dynamical Systems Days (HANDSDays), Kiel | Dynamical systems and operator algebras ## AbstractThe crossed product construction associates to each topological dynamical system an interesting C*-algebra. The fundamental goal is to determine which properties of the dynamical system are encoded in the C*-algebra, and how.I will give an overview of the crossed product construction and then highlight some of the properties of a dynamical system that can be recognized in the crossed product, including some recent breakthroughs results concerning simplicity of group C*-algebras and crossed products. |

2022/06 | Wales MPPM Zoom Seminar (online talk) | Are C*-algebras determined by their linear and orthogonality structure? ## AbstractIt is well-known that every C*-algebra is determined by its linear and multiplicative structure: Two C*-algebras are *-isomorphic if and only if they admit a multiplicative, linear bijection. We study if instead of the whole multiplicative structure it suffices to record when two elements have zero product. While it is not clear if every C*-algebra is determined this way, we obtain many positive results. In particular, two unital, simple C*-algebras are *-isomorphic if and only if they admit a linear bijection that preserves zero products.(Joint work with Eusebio Gardella.) |

2022/05 | Oberseminar Analysis, Kiel | Sind C*-Algebren durch ihre lineare und orthogonale Struktur festgelegt? ## AbstractEs ist wohlbekannt, dass jede C*-Algebra durch ihre lineare und multiplikative Struktur festgelegt ist: Zwei C*-Algebren sind genau dann *-isomorph wenn sie eine multiplikative, lineare Bijektion zulassen.Wir studieren, ob es genügt anstelle der gesamten multiplikativen Struktur festzuhalten wann zwei Elemente Nullprodukt haben. Während es unklar bleibt, ob dies im allgemeinen ausreicht, zeigen wir mehrere positive Resultate. Insbesondere sind zwei unitale, einfache C*-Algebren genau dann *-isomorph wenn sie eine lineare, Nullprodukt erhaltende Bijektion zulassen. Dies ist eine gemeinsame Arbeit mit Eusebio Gardella. |

2022/02 | Analysis and Probability Seminar, Gothenburg | The generator problem for C*-algebras ## AbstractThe generator problem asks to determine for a given C*-algebra its minimal number of generators. In particular, one wants to know if every separable, simple C*-algebra is generated by a single element. The generator problem was originally asked for von Neumann algebras, and Kadison included it as Nr. 14 of his famous list of 20 "Problems on von Neumann algebras". The problem remains open, most notably for the reduced free group C*-algebras and the free group factors.To tackle the generator problem, I introduced the generator rank as a stable quantification of the generator problem. Instead of asking if a C*-algebra is generated by k elements, the generator rank records whether the generating k-tuples are dense. It turns out that this invariant has good permanence properties and it can be computed in a number of interesting cases. In this talk, I will first give an overview on the generator problem and then present some recent results on computations of the generator rank. Most interestingly, we will see a strong solution to the generator problem for separable, simple, classifiable C*-algebras: They are not merely singly generated but they contain a dense set of generators. |

2021/11 | Oberseminar Analysis, Kiel | Rigidität von Gruppenalgebren ## AbstractZu einer diskrete Gruppe G werden verschiedene Gruppenalgebren assoziiert. Die Rigidität beschreibt, wie viele Eigenschaften von G aus der Gruppenalgebra abgelesen werden können. Die größtmögliche Rigidität bedeutet, dass die komplette Struktur von G durch die Gruppenalgebra festgelegt ist.Für eine reelle Zahl p größer 1 betrachten wir die linksreguläre Darstellung von G auf dem Lp-Raum von G. Die erzeugte Banachalgebra heißt die reduzierte Lp-Gruppenalgebra von G. Für p=2 erhalten wir die reduzierte Gruppen-C*-Algebra. Es seien nun G und H diskrete Gruppen, sodass die reduzierten Lp-Gruppenalgebren von G und H isomorph sind. Können wir schlussfolgern, dass G und H isomorph sind? Für p ungleich 2 ist die Antwort überraschenderweise "Ja". In diesem Fall haben wir maximale Rigidität und eine Gruppe kann aus ihrer reduzierten Lp-Gruppenalgebra abgelesen werden. Der Fall p=1 wurde 1951 von Wendel gezeigt. Für p=2 ändert sich die Situation drastisch. Es gibt einfache Beispiele von nicht-isomorphen Gruppen mit isomorphen reduzierten Gruppen-C*-Algebren. Dennoch kann man viele Eigenschaften einer Gruppe aus ihrer Gruppen-C*-Algebra ablesen. In einigen Fällen kann man sogar maximale Rigidität zeigen: Bestimmte Bieberbachgruppen sind durch ihre Gruppen-C*-Algebra eindeutig festgelegt. Dieser Vortrag basiert auf einer Zusammenarbeit mit E. Gardella, und einer Zusammenarbeit mit S. Knudby, S. Raum und S. White. |

2021/08 | IWOTA, Session 2 (Operator algebras) (online talk) | The rank problem for C*-algebras Download Slides ## AbstractThe rank problem for a given C*-algebra is to describe the functions on its trace space that arise as the rank of an operator. This is a deep problem about the internal structure of C*-algebras, and a solution will have important consequences, in particular for the Toms-Winter regularity conjecture and the classification of simple, amenable C*-algebras.I will explain how the geometry of the trace space creates difficulties in a solution of the rank problem, and how these difficulties were overcome in the recent solution of the rank problem for C*-algebras of stable rank one. |

2020/11 | Oberseminar Free Probability, Saarland University, Saarbrücken, 11. November 2020 (online talk) | Diffuse traces and Haar unitaries Download Slides ## AbstractA Haar unitary (with respect to a given tracial state) is a unitary such that every nonzero power of the unitary and its adjoint has vanishing trace. We show that a tracial state admits a Haar unitary if and only if it is diffuse (the unique extension to a normal tracial state on the enveloping von Neumann algebra vanishes on every minimal projection), if and only if it does not dominate a tracial functional that factors through a finite-dimensional quotient.It follows that a unital C*-algebra has no finite-dimensional representations if and only if each of its tracial states admits a Haar unitary. In particular, every tracial state on an infinite-dimensional, simple C*-algebra admits a Haar unitary. I will sketch a proof of this result and present some applications to group C*-algebras and reduced free products. |
