Workshop
Methods of Noncommutative Geometry in Analysis and Topology
Leibniz Universität Hannover, October 6 - 9, 2014

Description

This four day workshop will be held Monday 6 - Thursday 9, October, 2014 at the main building of the Leibniz Universität Hannover.

The event will gather experts in the noncommutative geometry community, with Kasparov's bivariant K-theory as the unifying theme. A focal point of the workshop will be the Baum-Connes conjecture, which for three decades has been a central problem in this field, bringing together geometry, topology and analysis. This has lead to both new fundamental ideas as well as interactions with other fields of mathematics. Notable applications encompass index theory, mathematical physics, dynamical systems and the classification of C*-algebras.

There will be a poster session to promote the interaction between junior researchers and experts in the field.

Topics include:

  • Bivariant homology theories for topological algebras and their unbounded models
  • Isomorphism conjectures for group rings and algebras
  • Index type invariants on noncompact manifolds
