DESCRIPTION:Abstract: Let G be a second countable\, locally compact\, Hausdorff group and let δ be a strongly self-absorbing action of G on a separable\, unital C*-algebra D. In this talk\, I will discuss (D\, δ)-stability of a G-C(X)-algebra when all of its fibers are (D\, δ)-stable.

SUMMARY:Analysis Seminar: UK Virtual Operator Algebras Seminar: Amenability via ultraproduct embeddings for II_1 factors - Scott Atkinson (University of California\, Riverside)
DESCRIPTION:Abstract: The property of amenability is a cornerstone in the study and classification of II_1 factor von Neumann algebras. Likewise\, ultraproduct analysis is an essential tool in the subject. We will discuss the history\, recent results\, and open questions on characterizations of amenability for separable II_1 factors in terms of embeddings...\N\NMore information: http://www.gla.ac.uk/schools/mathematicsstatistics/events/details/?id=10531

SUMMARY:Analysis Seminar: UK Virtual Operator Algebras Seminar: Extensions of C*-algebras - Christian Bönicke (University of Glasgow)
DESCRIPTION:Abstract: Having its roots in classical operator theoretic questions\, the theory of extensions of C*-algebras is now a powerful tool with applications in geometry and topology and of course within the theory of C*-algebras itself. In this talk I will give a gentle introduction to the topic highlighting some classical results...\N\NMore information: http://www.gla.ac.uk/schools/mathematicsstatistics/events/details/?id=10532

SUMMARY:Analysis Seminar: UK Virtual Operator Algebras Seminar: An introduction to Cuntz--Pimsner algebras - Francesca Arici (Universiteit Leiden)
DESCRIPTION:Abstract: In 1997 Pimsner described how to construct two universal C*-algebras associated with an injective C*-correspondence\, now known as the Toeplitz--Pimsner and Cuntz--Pimsner algebras. In this talk I will recall their construction\, focusing for simplicity on the case of a finitely generated projective correspondence. I will describe the associated six-term exact...\N\NMore information: http://www.gla.ac.uk/schools/mathematicsstatistics/events/details/?id=10544

SUMMARY:Analysis Seminar: UK Virtual Operator Algebras Seminar: Approximating traces: what\, why and how. - Christopher Schafhauser (University of Nebraska\, Lincoln)
DESCRIPTION:Abstract: Traces have played a fundamental role in operator algebras every since the beginning of the subject starting with Murray and von Neumann’s study of finite von Neumann algebras and the classification of projections in such algebras via the centre-valued trace. In Connes’s study of injective II_1-factors\, he considered a certain...\N\NMore information: http://www.gla.ac.uk/schools/mathematicsstatistics/events/details/?id=10545
