Commutative Algebraic Methods in Operator Theory

GAP Seminar

Meeting Details

For more information about this meeting, contact Ping Xu, Mathieu Stiénon, Nigel Higson.

Speaker: Xiang Fang, Kansas State University

Abstract: I will show how to introduce commutative algebraic methods to study problems about Hilbert space operators, especially those of a "local" nature, such as the Fredholm index. Examples include how to calculate Fredholm index using Samuel multiplicity, a fundamental local invariant of algebraic varieties. The talk is accessible to graduate students.
