Kyoto Operator Algebra Seminar

Organizers: Masaki IZUMI, Narutaka OZAWA, Yoshikata KIDA
Time and Location: 15:00 - 16:30 on Tuesday at RIMS 006
Seminar Description: This seminar features both research and introductory talks on topics in Operator Algebra, Noncommutative Geometry, Ergodic Theory, and Group Theory of various kinds (geometric, measure theoretic, functional analytic, etc.). The talks are informal and take between an hour and an hour and a half.
