ACTIVITIES
OPERATOR ALGEBRAS AND NONCOMMUTATIVE
GEOMETRY |

NOTE: operator algebras = von Neumann algebras + K-theory + cyclic cohomology, the noncommutative versions of measure theory, topology and differential geometry.

Mode of operation : around two transverse seminars, GNCPT (Noncommutative Geometry and Theoretical Physics) and GVN (Gromov-von Neumann seminar on geometry and analysis) run jointly between the IML, the CPT and the LATP.

Researchers in operator algebras: Kasparov, Puschnigg,

Associated project : The GAP project (2003-2006), "Géométrie, Algèbres d'opérateurs, Physique", a special direct action of the

Associated seminars :

GNC/PT (noncommutative geometry, theoretical physics) organised by

GVN (Gromov-von Neumann seminar on geometry and analysis) organised by

Invitations : In addition to invitations to the two common seminars, for a number of years there have been longer term invitations to scientists of mutual interest to mathematicians and physicists.

GNC2004 : At the beginning of 2004, a month-long residential session on "Noncommutative Geometry in Mathematics and Physics" took place at CIRM, run jointly by the research groups from the IML and the CPT. The meeting was attended by almost all the international experts in the subject. |
