Commutative Algebraic Methods in Operator Theory
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.
