DESCRIPTION:Title:
Quantum metrics on the tensor product of a commutative C*-algebra and an A
F C*-algebra.\nby Konrad Aguilar (University of Southern Denmark) as p
art of Noncommutative Geometry in NYC\n\n\nAbstract\nGiven a compact metri
c space X and a unital AF algebra A equipped with a faithful tracial state
\, we place quantum\nmetrics on the tensor product of C(X) and A given est
ablished quantum metrics on C(X) and A from work with Bice\nand Latremolie
re. We prove the inductive limit of C(X) tensor A given by A is a metric l
imit in the Gromov-Hausdorff\npropinquity. We show that our quantum metric
is compatible with the tensor product by producing a Leibniz rule on\nele
mentary tensors and showing the diameter of our quantum metric on the tens
or product is bounded above the diameter\nof the Cartesian product of the
quantum metric spaces. We provide continuous families of C(X) tensor A whi
ch extends\nour previous results with Latremoliere on UHF algebras.\n

Orbit correspondence and groupoid C*-algebras\nby Nicola Ciccoli (Univ

t\nIn those NC C*-algebras arising as quantization of a Poisson manifold o
ne can try to establish a relation between the symplectic foliation of the
manifold and the unitary dual of its quantization. This relation is what
goes under the name of orbit correspondence. In the best behaved cases thi
s correspondence is an homeomorphism. We will review some results on speci
fic examples\, stressing the use of "groupoid quantization" as a tool to
better understand features of this correspondence.\n

KK-theory with real coefficients\, traces\, and discrete group actions

show that in equivariant KK-theory with coefficients one can "localize at

DESCRIPTION:Title: The Novikov conjecture\, groups of diffeomorphisms\, and infinite dimensi
onal nonpositively curved spaces\nby Jianchao Wu (Texas A & M) as part
of Noncommutative Geometry in NYC\n\n\nAbstract\nThe rational strong Novi
kov conjecture is a prominent problem in noncommutative geometry. It impli
es deep conjectures in topology and differential geometry such as the (cla
ssical) Novikov conjecture on higher signatures and the Gromov-Lawson conj
ecture on positive scalar curvature. Using C*-algebraic and K-theoretic to
ols\, we prove that the rational strong Novikov conjecture holds for geome
trically discrete subgroups of the group of volume preserving diffeomorphi
sms of any closed smooth manifold. The crucial geometric property of these
groups that we exploit is the fact that they admit isometric and proper a
ctions on a type of infinite-dimensional symmetric space of nonpositive cu
rvature called the space of $L^2$-Riemannian metrics. In fact\, our result
holds for any discrete group admitting an isometric and proper action on
a (possibly infinite-dimensional) nonpositively curved space that we call
an admissible Hilbert-Hadamard space\; thus our result partially extends e
arlier ones of Kasparov and Higson-Kasparov. This is joint work with Sherr
y Gong and Guoliang Yu.\n

nAbstract\nI will give an overview of recent results for semigroup C*-alge
bras associated with number fields. These results are already interesting
in the case where the field is the rational numbers\, and I will focus mos
tly on this case to make everything more explicit and accessible.\nC*-alge
bras of full ax+b-semigroups over rings of algebraic integers were first s
tudied by Cuntz\, Deninger\, and Laca\; their construction has since been
generalized by considering actions of congruence monoids. Semigroup C*-alg
ebras obtained this way provide an example class of unital\, separable\, n
uclear\, strongly purely infinite C*-algebras which\, in many cases\, comp
letely characterize the initial number-theoretic data. They also carry can
onical time evolutions\, and the associated C*-dynamical systems exhibit i
ntriguing phenomena. For instance\, the striking similarity between the K-
theory formula and the parameterization space for the low temperature KMS
states\, observed by Cuntz in the case of the full ax+b-semigroup\, persis
ts in the more general setting.\nPart of this work is joint with Xin Li\,

DESCRIPTION:Title: Baum-Connes\, coactions\, and the Tilde Problem\nby John Quigg (Arizo
na State University) as part of Noncommutative Geometry in NYC\n\n\nAbstra
ct\nTrouble with the Baum-Connes Conjecture (with coefficients) can in som
e way be blamed upon the existence of groups for which the reduced-crossed
-product functor is not exact. The full crossed product is exact but doesn
't fix the conjecture. Efforts to fix the conjecture have focused upon the
``minimal exact crossed product''\, whose existence is known through abst
ract nonsense\, but a construction remains elusive. Baum\, Guentner\, and
Willett propose a candidate formed in part by tensoring with a fixed actio
n. Our contribution to the [BGW] ``exotic crossed product'' program involv
es composing the full crossed product with coaction functors\, hoping that
the shift to coactions will add new insights. In particular\, we replace
the [BGW] candidate by tensoring with a fixed coaction. For a long time we
had a hard time proving that our functor is exact. The ``natural'' approa
ch involves embedding into ``tilde multiplier algebras'' (which I'll defin
e in the talk). But we can't see how to prove that this gives an exact fun
ctor\, and we call this the Tilde Problem. To get around this\, we initial
ly proved exactness of our coaction functor another --- extremely unsatisf
ying --- way: a long odyssey through equivariant C*-correspondences\, ``na
tural'' Morita equivalence\, crossed-product duality\, and --- the final h
umiliation --- appealing to exactness of the [BGW] crossed-product functor
itself\, completely thwarting our goal of doing everything within the rea
lm of coactions. Fortunately\, we recently saw how to use our incomplete k
nowledge of the tilde functor to prove exactness of our coaction functor.\

DESCRIPTION:Title: Fourier algebras of the group of $\\mathbb{R}$-affine transformations and
a dual convolution\nby Mahya Ghandehari (University of Delaware) as p
art of Noncommutative Geometry in NYC\n\n\nAbstract\nA major trend in Non-
commutative Harmonic Analysis is to investigate function spaces related to
Fourier analysis (and representation theory) of non-abelian groups.\n\nTh
e Fourier algebra\, which is associated with the left regular representati
on of the ambient group\, is an important example of such function spaces.
This function algebra encodes the properties of the group in various ways
\; for instance the existence of derivations on this algebra translates in
to information about the commutativity of the group itself. \n\n\n\nIn thi
s talk\, we investigate the Fourier algebra of the group of $\\mathbb{R}$-
affine transformations. In particular\, we discuss the non-commutative Fo
urier transform for this group\, and provide an explicit formula for the
convolution product on the ``dual side'' of this transform. As an applicat

DESCRIPTION:Title: Spectral Flow of Toeplitz operators and bulk-edge correspondence\nby
Maxim Braverman (Northeastern University) as part of Noncommutative Geomet
ry in NYC\n\n\nAbstract\nWe show that the (graded) spectral flow of a fami
ly of Toeplitz operators on a complete Riemannian manifold is equal to the
index of a certain Callias-type operator. When the dimension of the manif
old is even this leads to a cohomological formula for the spectral flow. A
s an application\, we compute the spectral flow of a family of Toeplitz op
erators on a strongly pseudoconvex domain in $\\mathbb{C}^n$. This result
is similar to the Boutet de Monvel's computation of the index of a single
Toeplitz operator on a strongly pseudoconvex domain. Finally\, we show tha
t the bulk-boundary correspondence in a tight-binding model of topological
insulators is a special case of our results. At the end I will explain KK
-theoretical extension of the main theaorem to families of Toeplitz operat
ors parametrized by an arbitrary compact manifold\, obtained by Koen van d

DESCRIPTION:Title: The universal von Neumann algebra of smooth 4-manifolds with an applicati
on to gravity\nby Gabor Etesi (Budapest University of Technology and E
conomics) as part of Noncommutative Geometry in NYC\n\n\nAbstract\nMaking
use of its smooth structure only\, out of a connected\noriented smooth $4$
-manifold a von Neumann algebra is constructed. As a\nspecial four dimensi
onal phenomenon this von Neumann algebra is\napproximated by algebraic (i.
e.\, formal) curvature tensors of the\nunderlying $4$-manifold and the von
Neumann algebra itself is a\nhyperfinite factor of ${\\rm II}_1$ type hen
ce is unique up to abstract\nisomorphisms of von Neumann algebras. Neverth
eless over a fixed\n$4$-manifold this von Neumann algebra admits a represe
ntation on a Hilbert\nspace such that its unitary equivalence class is pre
served by\norientation-preserving diffeomorphisms. Consequently the Murray
--von\nNeumann coupling constant of this representation is well-defined an
d gives\nrise to a new and computable real-valued smooth $4$-manifold inva
riant: In\nan appropriate sense this invariant along all simply connected
closed\n$4$-manifolds is generated by its surely non-trivial value on\n${\
\mathbb C}P^2$ (with its standard smooth structure) alone.\n\nIn the secon
d half of the seminar (i.e. if time remains) some consequences\nof this co
nstruction for quantum gravity are also discussed. Namely\nreversing the c
onstruction by starting not with a particular smooth\n$4$-manifold but wit
h the unique hyperfinite ${\\rm II}_1$ factor\, a\nconceptually simple but
manifestly four dimensional\, covariant\,\nnon-perturbative and genuinely
quantum theory is introduced whose\nclassical limit is general relativity
in an appropriate sense. Therefore\nit is reasonable to consider it as a
sort of quantum theory of gravity. In\nthis model\, among other interestin

tant acquires a natural explanation.\n\nReference\n\n1. G. Etesi: The univ

\, so we can study the crossed product $\\mathcal{O}_E\\rtimes G$.\n\nIf t

DESCRIPTION:Title: Gabor frames and Wannier bases from groupoid Morita equivalences\nby
Bram Mesland (Leiden University) as part of Noncommutative Geometry in NYC
\n\n\nAbstract\nA key question in Gabor analysis is the reconstruction of
elements in a Hilbert space \nvia a Gabor frame. Gabor frames arise from a
finite set of vectors acted upon by a canonically defined \nset of operat
ors (typically translation and modulation). \nThis data is often convenien
tly encoded in the algebraic structure of a groupoid. In this talk we will
discuss how the natural notion of Morita equivalence of groupoids gives r
ise to Gabor frames for the Hilbert space localisation of \nthe Morita equ
ivalence bimodule of the reduced groupoid $C^*$-algebras. For finitely gen
erated and projective submodules\, we show these Gabor frames are orthonor
mal \nbases if and only if the module is free. \nIf time allows\, we will
discuss an application of this result to spectral subspaces of Schroedinge
r operators with atomic potentials supported on (aperiodic) Delone sets.\

DESCRIPTION:Title: Non-commutative transport of measure\nby David Jekel (UC San Diego) a
s part of Noncommutative Geometry in NYC\n\n\nAbstract\nGiven self-adjoint
operators $X_1\, \\dots\, X_d$ and $Y_1\, \\dots\, Y_d$\, it is difficult
to tell when the von Neumann algebra generated by the $X_j$'s and $Y_j$'s
are isomorphic. Viewing the operators as non-commutative random variable
s\, the isomorphism of von Neumann algebras is equivalent to the existence
of a non-commutative function that will push forward the non-commutative
probability distribution of $X = (X_1\,\\dots\,X_d)$ to that of $Y =(Y_1\,
\\dots\,Y_d)$. It was proved by Guionnet\, Shlyakhtenko\, and Dabrowski t
hat certain nice non-commutative probability distributions known as free G
ibbs laws can be transported to the non-commutative Gaussian distribution\
, and thus the associated von Neumann algebras are all isomorphic. More r
ecently\, we have shown that this transport can be done in a lower triangu
lar manner\, so that the von Neumann algebra generated by $X_1\, \\dots\,
X_k$ is mapped to the von Neumann algebra generated by $Y_1\, \\dots\, Y_k
$ for $k = 1\, \\dots\, d$. Furthermore\, this transport arises in a natu
ral way as the large-$n$ limit of classical transport of measure for rando
m variables in the space of $d$-tuples $n \\times n$ matrices that approxi
mate $(X_1\,\\dots\,X_d)$ as $n \\to \\infty$.\n

metry in NYC\n\n\nAbstract\nThe space of harmonic functions on a locally c
ompact group $G$ is the fixed point space of a\ncertain Markov operator. I
ts `quantization'\, the corresponding fixed point space of operators on $L
^2(G)$\, coincides with the weak-* closed bimodule over the group von Neum
ann algebra generated by this space. We examine the analogous spaces of jo
intly harmonic functions\nand their quantized operator bimodules. This lea
ds to two different notions of crossed product of operator spaces by actio
ns of $G$\, which coincide when $G$ satisfies a certain approximation prop
erty. The corresponding (dual) notions of crossed products of (co-) action
s by the von Neumann algebra of $G$ always coincide. This gives a new appr
oach to the correspondence between spectral synthesis and operator synthes
is.\n\n\nThe talk is a survey of joint work with M. Anoussis and I.G. Todo
rov\, and of recent work by D. Andreou.\n

rnlind (Linköping University) as part of Noncommutative Geometry in NYC\n
\n\nAbstract\nThe theory of minimal surfaces is an old and still quite act
ive field\nof research\, and it is natural to ask if there exists a corres
ponding\ntheory in noncommutative geometry? In particular\, analogues of m
inimal\nsubmanifolds appear in physical theories related to quantum gravit
y\n(string/membrane theory). I will present an approach to noncommutative\
nminimal surfaces taking an equational point of view (rather than a\nvaria
tional one). After providing some background material leading to\nour defi
nition of noncommutative minimal surfaces\, I will discuss a\nframework fo
r constructing Levi-Civita connections and curvature of\nsuch surfaces. Th
ese considerations naturally lead to a general\ndiscussion of metric conne
ctions on hermitian modules.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: The Mackey bijection for reductive groups and continuous fields of reduce
d group C*-algebras\nby Angel Roman (William & Mary) as part of Noncom
mutative Geometry in NYC\n\n\nAbstract\nIn the 1970's\, George Mackey prop
osed that there should be some kind of analogy between unitary representat
ions of semisimple groups $G$ and unitary representations of its Cartan m
otion group $G_0=K\\ltimes \\mathfrak{g}/\\mathfrak{k}$\, where $K$ is a m
aximal compact subgroup of $G$. Eventually a precise bijection was constru
cted between the irreducible tempered unitary representations of $G$ and t
he irreducible unitary representations of $G_0$. In a joint work with Nige
l Higson we characterized the Mackey bijection using continuous fields of
reduced group $C^*$-algebra of complex reductive group. We constructed an
embedding between the reduced $C^*$-algebras of $G_0$ and $G$. Time permit
ting\, I will discuss ongoing work (with Nigel Higson and Pierre Clare) to
ward a generalization to a wider class of groups.\n

Copenhagen) as part of Noncommutative Geometry in NYC\n\n\nAbstract\nWe s
tart with an abstract definition of C*-correspondences comparing them to F
ell bundles.\nAfter a first few basic results\, we then swiftly move on to
their representations.\nWe introduce here the concept of covariances and
relative Cuntz-Pimsner algebras.\n\nFrom here we go into a detailed analys
is of covariances within the category of C*-correpondences.\nWe obtain her
e a systematic reduction leading us to a parametrisation of relative Cuntz
-Pimsner algebras.\n\nWith this at hand we arrive at the gauge-invariant u
niqueness theorem\, for all (arbitrary) gauge-equivariant representations
at once.\n\nFrom here we move on to the analysis part of the program.\nWe
study the covariances in the case of the Fock representation and its quoti
ents.\nAs a result we derive that the parametrisation of relative Cuntz-Pi
msner algebras is classifying.\nIn other words\, we obtain a complete and
intrinsic picture of the lattice of quotients\, and equivalently of gauge-
invariant ideals.\n\nIf time permits\, we finish off with the next chapter
on their induced Fell bundles\, as already investigated by Schweizer.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: The tempered dual of real or p-adic reductive groups\, and its noncommuta

tidis (CNRS\, l’Institut Élie Cartan de Lorraine) as part of Noncommuta
tive Geometry in NYC\n\n\nAbstract\nSuppose G is a real or p-adic reductiv
e group. The space of irreducible tempered representations of G comes equi
pped with the Fell topology\, which encodes important phenomena in represe
ntation theory. The topology is usefully studied by noncommutative-geomet
ric methods: the tempered dual naturally identifies with the spectrum of t
he C*-algebra of G\, and its connected components identify with the spectr
a of certain `blocks’ in the C*-algebra. \n\nFor real reductive groups\,
A. Wassermann proved in 1987 that each `block’ has\, up to Morita equiv
alence\, a beautiful and simple structure. This was a crucial step in his
proof of the Baum-Connes-Kasparov conjecture for G. For p-adic groups\, it
is not obvious at all that such a structure can exist\, but important exa
mples were given by R. Plymen and his students. \n\nIn my talk\, I will re
port on joint work with Anne-Marie Aubert which (1) for arbitrary G\, give
s a geometric condition for the existence of a Wassermann-type structure o
n a given block\, and (2) when G is a quasi-split symplectic\, orthogonal
or unitary group\, explicitly determines the connected components of the t
empered dual for which the geometric assumption is satisfied.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Exterior products of compact quantum metric spaces\nby Jens Kaad (Uni
versity of Southern Denmark) as part of Noncommutative Geometry in NYC\n\n
\nAbstract\nThe theory of compact quantum metric spaces was initiated by R
ieffel in the late nineties. Important inspiration came from the fundament
al observation of Connes saying that the metric on a compact spin manifold
can be recovered from the Dirac operator. A compact quantum metric space
is an operator system (e.g. a unital C*-algebra) equipped with a seminorm
which metrizes the weak-*-topology on the state space via the associated M
onge-Kantorovich metric. In this talk we study tensor products of compact
quantum metric spaces with specific focus on seminorms arising from the ex
terior product of spectral triples. On our way we obtain a novel character
ization of compact quantum metric spaces using finite dimensional approxim
ations and we apply this characterization to propose a completely bounded
version of the theory.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Classification of unitary elements of a C*-algebra\nby Laurent Cantie
r (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona) as part of Noncommutative Geometry
in NYC\n\n\nAbstract\nThe Cuntz semigroup has emerged as an essential tool
for the classification of (non-simple) C*-algebras. For instance\, it has
been shown that the functor Cu classifies positive elements of any C*-alg
ebra of stable rank 1 (up to approximately unitarily equivalence). An imme
diate corollary is that the Cuntz semigroup is a complete invariant for AI
algebras. In this talk\, I will raise the question of classification of u
nitary elements of a C*-algebra (of stable rank 1). It is unlikely that th
e Cuntz semigroup alone is sufficient to classify these elements and one c
an speculate that an ingredient with $K_1$ flavor has to be added. Neverth
eless\, I will prove that this remains true when restricting to AF algebra
s and I will discuss how one could to extend this classification result to
a larger class of C*-algebra.\n\nEven though I will recall definitions of
the Cuntz semigroup and classifying functor\, it might good to point out
that knowledge about C*-algebras are needed.\n

n\nAbstract\nOne can encode various properties of locally compact groups f
rom properties of Banach algebras associated to the groups and vice versa.
In this talk I will explain how Herz-Schur multipliers have been used to
study some of those properties. Then I will talk about generalization of s
uch multipliers to the setting of dynamical systems and explain how the te
chnique of Herz-Schur multipliers can be extended to study approximation p
roperties of crossed product C*-algebras. I shall also discuss compact and
completely compact multipliers.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Factor systems as a computational framework for noncommutative principal
bundles - with an application to Atiyah’s famous Lie algebra sequence\nby Stefan Wagner (Blekinge Institute of Technology) as part of Noncommu
tative Geometry in NYC\n\n\nAbstract\nFree C*-dynamical systems\, in the s
ense of Ellwood\, provide a natural framework for noncommutative principal
bundles\, which are becoming increasingly prevalent in various applicatio
ns to noncommutative geometry and mathematical physics. \nOne of the key f
eatures of free C*-dynamical systems are their associated factor systems\,
which make them accessible to classification\, K-theoretic considerations
\, and computations in general. \nIn this talk we present the recent theor
y of factor systems for free C*-dynamical systems and apply it to give a d
erivation-based Atiyah sequence for noncommutative principal bundles.\n

tract\nInverse semigroups are a generalization of groups\, where elements
in an inverse semigroup can be thought of as partial symmetries of a space

lgebra is nuclear by means of an intrinsic metric in the semigroup\, and p

. Moreover\, one can also study amenability notions in this case\, and rel

DESCRIPTION:Title: Frobenius C*-algebras and local adjunctions of C*-correspondences\nby
Tyrone Crisp (University of Maine) as part of Noncommutative Geometry in
NYC\n\n\nAbstract\nMany interesting and important C*-algebras do not have
multiplicative identities\, and C*-algebraists have long known how to deal
with this fact by using approximate identities\, multiplier algebras\, et
c. A similar situation arises when one attempts to use methods of category
theory to study modules over C*-algebras: objects like "the category of c
ompact operators on Hilbert spaces" don't fit neatly into the standard the
ory of categories\, because they lack identity morphisms\; but they do fit
nicely into a theory of non-unital C*-categories and their multiplier cat
egories\, as developed by Kandelaki\, Mitchener\, Vasselli\, Antoun-Voigt\
, and others. This talk concerns an adaptation of the important categorica
l notion of adjoint functors to this non-unital-category point of view. I
will present a definition (taken from joint work with Pierre Clare and Nig
el Higson) of adjoint functors between categories of compact operators on
Hilbert C*-modules\, and I will explain how this definition corresponds to
a natural notion of Frobenius C*-algebra\, mirroring a correspondence bet
ween two-sided adjunctions and Frobenius algebras in classical category th
eory.\n

rong (Universität Münster) as part of Noncommutative Geometry in NYC\n\n
\nAbstract\nTwisted groupoid C*-algebras were introduced by Renault in 198
0 and are a generalisation of twisted group C*-algebras\, which are the C*
-algebraic analogue of twisted group rings. Through the work of Renault an
d more recently of Li\, it has emerged that every simple classifiable C*-a
lgebra can be realised as a twisted groupoid C*-algebra\, a result that ha
s led to increased interest in the structure of these C*-algebras. In this
talk I will describe the construction of reduced twisted C*-algebras of H
ausdorff étale groupoids. I will then discuss my recent preprint in which
I prove a uniqueness theorem for these algebras and use this to character
ise simplicity in the case where the groupoid is effective.\n

C*-algebras by Villadsen (algebras with perforation in their ordered K-th

Toms (algebras that cannot be distinguished by ordered K-theory and traces
). I will describe two regularity properties: finite nuclear dimension and
Z-stability (aka Jiang-Su-stability). In joint work with Castillejos\, Ev

simple separable nuclear unital C*-algebras\, verifying a conjecture of T

ss\, which is a new finite-dimensional approximation property. I will expl
ain how these notions related to almost finiteness defined by Matui and re
fined by Kerr and show our almost elementariness implying tracial Z-stabil

Matui's almost finiteness in the groupoid setting also implies Z-stability
when the groupoid is minimal 2nd countable and topological amenable. This
was open in general before. I will also present more applications if time

DESCRIPTION:Title: Quantum Root Vectors and a Dolbeault Double Complex for the A-Series Quan
tum Flag Manifolds\nby Réamonn Ó Buachalla (Charles University\, Pra
gue) as part of Noncommutative Geometry in NYC\n\n\nAbstract\nIn the 2000s
a series of seminal papers by Heckenberger and Kolb introduced an essenti
ally unique covariant $q$-deformed de Rham complex for the irreducible qua
ntum flag manifolds. In the years since\, it has become increasingly clear
that these differential graded algebras have a central role to play in th
e noncommutative geometry of Drinfeld–Jimbo quantum groups. Until now\,
however\, the question of how to extend Heckenberger and Kolb’s construc
tion beyond the irreducible case has not been examined. Here we address th
is question for the A-series Drinfeld–Jimbo quantum groups $U_q(\\mathfr
ak{sl}_{n+1})$\, and show that for precisely two reduced decompositions of
the longest element of the Weyl group\, Lusztig’s associated space of q
uantum root vectors gives a quantum tangent space for the full quantum fla
g manifold $\\mathcal{O}_q(F_{n+1})$ with associated differential graded a
lgebra of classical dimension. Moreover\, its restriction to the quantum G
rassmannians recovers the $q$-deformed complex of Heckenberger and Kolb\,
giving a conceptual explanation for their origin. Time permitting\, we wil
l discuss the noncommutative Kähler geometry of these spaces and the prop
osed extension of the root space construction to the other series. (Joint
work with P. Somberg.)\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Bundles of C*-algebras - An Introduction to Dixmier-Douady theory\nby
Ulrich Pennig (Cardiff University) as part of Noncommutative Geometry in
NYC\n\n\nAbstract\nA bundle of C*-algebras is a collection of algebras con
tinuously parametrised by a topological space. There are (at least) two di
fferent definitions in operator algebras that make this intuition precise:
Continuous C(X)-algebras provide a flexible analytic point of view\, whil
e locally trivial C*-algebra bundles allow a classification via homotopy t
heory. The section algebra of a bundle in the topological sense is a C(X)-
algebra\, but the converse is not true. In this talk I will compare these
two notions using the classical work of Dixmier and Douady on bundles with
fibres isomorphic to the compacts as a guideline. I will then explain joi
nt work with Marius Dadarlat\, in which we showed that the theorems of Dix
mier and Douady can be generalized to bundles with fibers isomorphic to st
abilized strongly self-absorbing C*-algebras. An important feature of the
theory is the appearance of higher analogues of the Dixmier-Douady class.\

DESCRIPTION:Title: Homology and K-theory of dynamical systems\nby Makoto Yamashita (Univ

theory of homology for étale groupoids was developed by Crainic and Moer
dijk based on simplicial structure of nerves of groupoids\, as a companion
to Haeflier's theory of cohomology for groupoids. We relate this to anoth
er (co)homology of groupoids\, namely the operator K-groups of the associa
ted convolution algebra\, when the base is totally disconnected. Such a co
nnection was conjectured by Matui through his study of Cantor dynamical sy
stems. Our proof is based on the triangulated categorical structure of gro
upoid equivariant KK-theory\, following the categorical approach to the Ba
um-Connes conjecture by Meyer and Nest. Along the way we uncover the close
connection to Putnam's homology theory for hyperbolic dynamical systems (
Smale spaces). Based on joint works with Valerio Proietti.\n

tempt to provide a set of equations which unify the four elementary intera
ctions in nature (the grand-unification) and in another\, perhaps connecte
d\, direction in proving the long-standing\, still unsolved\, Riemann conj
ecture about the zeroes of the $\\zeta$-function\, Connes’ non- commutat
ive geometry grew up rapidly in the last decades.\n\nAmong the main object
s introduced (by A. Connes) for handling noncommutative geometry there are
the so called spectral triples\, encoding most of the properties enjoyed
by the (quantum) ”manifold” into consideration\, and the associated Fr
edholm modules.\n\nOn the other hand\, the so-called Tomita modular theory
is nowadays assuming an increasingly relevant role for several applicatio
ns in mathematics and in physics. Such a scenario suggests the necessary n
eed to take the modular data into account in the investigation of quantum
manifolds. In such a situation\, the involved Dirac operators should be su
itably deformed (by the use of the modular operator)\, and should come fro
m non-type $II_1$ representations.\n\nTaking into account such comments\,
we discuss the preliminary necessary step consisting in the explicit const
ruction of examples of non type $II_1$ representations and relative spectr
al triples\, called modular. This is done for the noncommutative 2-torus $
A_{\\alpha}$\, provided α is a (special kind of) Liouville number\, where
the nontrivial modular structure plays a crucial role.\n\nFor such repres
entations\, we briefly discuss the appropriate Fourier analysis\, by provi
ng the analogous of many of the classical known theorems in harmonic analy
sis such as the Riemann-Lebesgue lemma\, the Hausdorff-Young theorem\, and
the $L_p$-convergence results associated to the Cesaro means (i.e. the Fe

f the Dirac operators associated to the previous mentioned spectral triple
s.\n\nFinally\, we provide a definition of a deformed generalisation of
”Fredholm module”\, i.e. a suitably deformed commutator of the ”phas
e” of the involved Dirac operator with elements of a subset (the so-call
ed Lipschitz $\\star$-algebra or Lipschitz operator system) which\, depend
ing on the cases under consideration\, is either a dense $\\star$-algebra
or an essential operator system. We also show that all models of modular
spectral triples for the noncommutative 2-torus mentioned above enjoy the
property to being also a deformed Fredholm module. This definition of defo
rmed Fredholm module is new even in the usual cases associated to a trace\
, and could provide other\, hopefully interesting\, applications.\n\nThe p

DESCRIPTION:Title: Spectral actions for q-particles and their asymptotic (Part II)\nby F
rancesco Fidaleo (Università di Roma "Tor Vergata") as part of Noncommuta
tive Geometry in NYC\n\n\nAbstract\nFor spectral actions made of the avera
ge number of particles and arising from open systems made of general free
$q$-particles (including Bose\, Fermi and classical ones corresponding to
$q=\\pm1$ and $0$\, respectively) in thermal equilibrium\, we compute the
asymptotic expansion with respect to the natural cut-off. We treat both re
levant situations relative to massless and massive particles\, where the n
atural cut-off is $1/\\beta=k_{\\rm B}T$ and $1/\\sqrt{\\beta}$\, respecti
vely. \nWe show that the massless situation enjoys less regularity proper
ties than the massive one. We also consider the passage to the continuum d
escribing infinitely extended open systems in thermal equilibrium. We brie
fly discuss the appearance of condensation phenomena occurring for Bose-li
ke $q$-particles\, for which $q\\in(0\,1]$\, after passing to the continuu
m. We also compare the arising results for the finite volume situation (di
screte spectrum) with the corresponding infinite volume one (continuous sp
ectrum).\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Dixmier trace formulas and negative eigenvalues of Schroedinger operators
on noncommutative tori\nby Raphael Ponge (Sichuan University) as part
of Noncommutative Geometry in NYC\n\n\nAbstract\nIn this talk\, we shall
first address a question raised by Alain Connes during a conference at Fud
an University in Shanghai in 2017. We will also explain a link that has co
me to light only recently between noncommutative geometry and the work of
Birman-Solomyak on semiclassical analysis of Schroedinger operators in the
70s. We will then present results obtained jointly with Ed McDonald (UNSW
-Sydney) on Cwikel-type estimates on NC tori. As an application we obtain
a version of Connes' integration formulas under very weak assumptions. Fu
rther applications include versions of the Cwikel-Lieb-Rozenblum and Lieb-
Thirring inequalities for negative eigenvalues of Schroedinger operators o
n noncommutative tori. Ultimately\, we get a seminclassical Weyl law for c
urved noncommutative tori\, i.e.\, NC tori endowed with arbitrary Riemanni
an metrics.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Complex analytic quantum groups\nby Oleg Yu. Aristov (Moscow State Un
iversity) as part of Noncommutative Geometry in NYC\n\n\nAbstract\nWe disc
uss a missing link in quantum group theory - quantum analogues of complex
Lie groups. As such analogues\, I propose to take topological Hopf algebra
s with a finiteness condition (holomorphically ﬁnitely generated or HFG
for short). This approach is not directly related to C*-algebraic quantum
groups (at least for now) but is an alternative view. Nevertheless\, the
topic seems to offer a wide range of research opportunities.\n\nOur focus
is on examples\, such as analytic forms of some classical quantum groups (
a deformation of a solvable Lie group and Drinfeld-Jimbo algebras). I al
so present some general results: 1) the category of Stein groups is anti-e
quivalent to the category of commutative Hopf HFG algebras\; 2) If $G$ is
a compactly generated Lie group\, the cocommutative topological Hopf alg
ebra $\\widehat{A(G)}$ (naturally associated with $G$) is HFG. When in
addition\, $G$ is connected linear\, the structure of $\\widehat{A(G)}$ c
an be described explicitly.\n\nI also plan to discuss briefly holomorphic
duality in the sense of Akbarov (which is parallel to Pontryagin duality).

DESCRIPTION:Title: Noncommutative numerable principal bundles from group actions on C*-algeb
ras\nby Mariusz Tobolski (University of Wrocław) as part of Noncommut
ative Geometry in NYC\n\n\nAbstract\nThe notion of a compact noncommutativ
e (or quantum) principal bundle\, which generalizes the Cartan compact pri
ncipal bundle from topology (local triviality not assumed)\, emerged in th
e literature almost 30 years ago. Recently\, the difficulty of introducing
the local-triviality condition to the noncommutative realm was overcome u
sing the notion of the local-triviality dimension of an action of a compac
t quantum group on a unital C*-algebra. In this talk\, I will propose a de
finition of a locally trivial noncommutative principal bundle in the setti
ng of actions of locally compact Hausdorff groups on (possibly non-unital)
C*-algebras. I will discuss various motivations and technical difficultie
s that appear in the non-compact case. I will also provide some basic resu
lts and examples. The key difference is that\, although the problem itself
can be described in the language of C*-algebra\, one is quickly led beyon
d the Gelfand-Naimark duality and to the theory of multipliers of the Pede
rsen ideal.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Smooth subalgebras in noncommutative geometry\nby Slawomir Klimek (I
ndiana University–Purdue University Indianapolis) as part of Noncommutat
ive Geometry in NYC\n\n\nAbstract\nIn noncommutative geometry it is often
natural to consider dense *-subalgebras of C*-algebras in particular in co
nnection with cyclic cohomology or with the study of unbounded derivations
on C*-algebras.\nIf C*-algebras are thought of as generalizations of topo
logical spaces\, then dense subalgebras may be regarded as specifying addi
tional structures on the underlying space\, like a smooth structure.\nAt p
resent there is no universally accepted general theory of such smooth suba
lgebras\, however there is a number of "standard" examples defined and stu
died in the literature.\nIn analogy with the algebras of smooth functions
on a compact manifold\, such a smooth subalgebra should have the following
properties:\n(1) It should be closed under holomorphic functional calculu
s of all elements and under smooth-functional calculus of self-adjoint ele
ments\n(2) It should be complete with respect to a locally convex algebra
topology\nThe purpose of the talk is to discuss those concepts on examples
\, including some more recent constructions.\n

y Kuzmin (University of Gothenburg) as part of Noncommutative Geometry in

Carnot manifolds -- manifolds whose Lie algebra of vector fields is equipp
ed with a filtration induced from sub-bundles of the tangent bundle. A Hei
senberg pseudodifferential operator\, elliptic in the calculus of van Erp-
Yuncken\, is hypoelliptic and Fredholm. Under some geometric conditions\,
we compute its Fredholm index by means of operator K-theory. These results
extend the work of Baum-van Erp (Acta Mathematica '2014) for co-oriented
contact manifolds to a methodology for solving this index problem geometri
cally on Carnot manifolds. Under the assumption that the Carnot manifold i
s regular\, i.e. has isomorphic osculating Lie algebras in all fibres\, an
d admits a flat coadjoint orbit\, the methodology derived from Baum-van Er
p's work is developed in full detail. In this case\, we develop K-theoreti
cal dualities computing the Fredholm index by means of geometric K-homolog
y a la Baum-Douglas. The duality involves a Hilbert space bundle of flat o
rbit representations. Explicit solutions to the index problem for Toeplitz
operators and operators of the form "ΔH+γT" are computed in geometric K
-homology\, extending results of Boutet de Monvel and Baum-van Erp\, respe
ctively\, from co-oriented contact manifolds to regular polycontact manifo

of the bundle is a bordered Riemann surface with finitely many smooth bou

each such $n$-homogeneous $C^*$-algebra\, one can define a holomorphic su
balgebra. In this talk\, we will describe some progress made towards class
ifying these subalgebras up to complete isometric isomorphism based on the

\nby Gabor Etesi (Budapest University of Technology and Economics) as part
of Noncommutative Geometry in NYC\n\n\nAbstract\nMaking use of its smooth
structure only\, out of a connected\noriented smooth $4$-manifold a von N
eumann algebra is constructed. As a\nspecial four dimensional phenomenon t
his von Neumann algebra contains\nalgebraic (i.e.\, formal or coming from
a metric) curvature tensors of the\nunderlying $4$-manifold and the von Ne
umann algebra itself is a\nhyperfinite factor of ${\\rm II}_1$-type hence
is unique up to abstract\nisomorphisms of von Neumann algebras. Over a fix
ed $4$-manifold this\nuniversal von Neumann algebra admits a particular re
presentation on a\nHilbert space such that its unitary equivalence class i
s preserved by\norientation-preserving diffeomorphisms consequently the Mu
rray--von\nNeumann coupling constant of this representation is well-define
d and gives\nrise to a new and computable real-valued smooth $4$-manifold
invariant.\nIts link with Jones' subfactor theory is noticed as well as co
mputations\nin the simply connected closed case are carried out.\n\nApplic
ation to the cosmological constant problem is also discussed.\nNamely\, th
e aforementioned mathematical construction allows to reformulate\nthe clas
sical vacuum Einstein equation with cosmological constant over a\n$4$-mani
fold as an operator equation over its tracial universal von\nNeumann algeb
ra such that the trace of a solution is naturally identified\nwith the cos
mological constant. This framework permits to use the observed\nmagnitude
of the cosmological constant to estimate by topological means\nthe number
of primordial black holes about the Planck era. This number\nturns out to
be negligable which is in agreement with known density\nestimates based on
the Press--Schechter mechanism.\n

part of Noncommutative Geometry in NYC\n\n\nAbstract\nWe give a very simpl
e proof of Connes implies Tsirelson\,\nand further advertise a hot topic i
n quantum information: optimal states and robust self-testing. We showcase
here how operator algebraic techniques can be quite fruitful.\n\nFor this
we begin with by recalling quantum strategies in the context of non-local
games\, and their description in terms of the state space on the full gro
up algebra of certain free groups.\n\nWith this description at hand\, we t
hen directly obtain the main result via an elementary lifting result by Ki
m\, Paulsen and Schafhauser:\nthe Connes embedding problem implies the syn
chronous Tsirelson conjecture.\n\nAs such the entire proof is elementary\,
\nand bypasses all versions of Kirchberg's QWEP conjecture and the like\,\
nas well as any reformulation such as in terms of the micro state conjectu
re.\n\nMoreover\, it should be (likely) easier to construct minimal nonloc
al games as counterexamples for the synchronous Tsirelson conjecture (whic
h is equivalent to the full Tsirelson conjecture but in a non-trivial way)
and so also nonamenable traces for above groups\, in other words non-Conn
es embeddable operator algebras.\n\n\n\nAfter this we continue (as much as
time permits) with an advertisement for one of the hottest topics in quan
tum information:\ndevice-independent certification of quantum states\, or
in short ROBUST SELF-TESTING\,\nwhich has tremendous importance for the co
ming era of practical quantum computing.\nand we showcase how operator alg
ebraic techniques can be quite fruitful here.\n\nMore precisely\, we illus
trate these techniques on the following two prominent classes of nonlocal
games:\n\n1) The tilted CHSH game.\nWe showcase here how to compute the qu
antum value using operator algebraic techniques\, and how to use the same
to derive uniqueness for entire optimal states\, including all higher mome
nts as opposed to correlations defined on two-moments only\, where the lat
ter compares to traditional self-testing.\nMoreover\, we report in this ex
ample on previously unknown phase transitions on the uniqueness of optimal
states when varying the parameters for the tilted CHSH game.\n\n2) The Me
rmin--Peres magic square and magic pentagram game.\nAs before\, we also no
te here uniqueness of optimal states\, which in these two examples is a ba
sically familiar result.\n\nThe first part is based on preprint: https://a
rxiv.org/abs/2209.07940\nThe second part on self-testing (and further robu
st self-testing) is based on joint work with Azin Shahiri.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: On the isomorphism class of q-Gaussian C*-algebras\nby Mario Klisse
(TU Delft) as part of Noncommutative Geometry in NYC\n\n\nAbstract\nIn 199
1 Bozejko and Speicher introduced a non-commutative version of Brownian mo
tion by defining a family of algebras depending on a parameter −1 ≤ q
≤ 1 that are nowadays commonly known as the q-Gaussian algebras. These a
lgebras interpolate between the extreme Bosonic case q = 1 and the Fermion
ic case q = −1. For q = 0 they coincide with Voiculescu’s free Gaussia
ns. The q-Gaussians can be studied on the level of *-algebras\, on the lev
el of C*-algebras\, and on the level of von Neumann algebras. Whereas it i
s easily seen that in the *-algebraic setting the q-Gaussians all coincide
\, as soon as one passes to the operator algebraic level the question for
the dependence on the parameter q becomes notoriously difficult.\n\nAfter
introducing the necessary background on q-Gaussians\, by considering the s
o-called Akemann-Ostrand property of the canonical inclusion we will discu
ss the dependence of the isomorphism class of q-Gaussian C*-algebras on th
e parameter q. This partially answers a question by Nelson and Zeng.\n\nTh
e talk is baised on joint work with Matthijs Borst\, Martijn Caspers and M
ateusz Wasilewski.\n

\nAbstract\nIn the talk\, I discuss measures on the path space of\ngeneral

S measures) on the path space of discrete and measurable Bratteli\ndiagram
s. In the literature\, similarity may be defined by systems of\naffine map
s (Sierpinski) or systems of conformal maps (Julia). We study\nnew classes
of iterated function systems associated to stationary generalized\nBratte

identify the measures which are also shift-invariant.\nThe talk is based

maps on operator algebras has gained increased importance as it has been

present an overview of the basic topics of this theory\, in particular th
e characterization of extreme positive maps or the problem of decomposabil

DESCRIPTION:Title: CW structures in noncommutative geometry\nby Francesco D'Andrea (Uni
versità di Napoli Federico II) as part of Noncommutative Geometry in NYC\
n\n\nAbstract\nI will illustrate some examples and ideas for a theory of C
W complexes in noncommutative geometry. In order to accommodate some impor
tant examples\, instead of diagrams in the category of quantum spaces (dua
l to C*-algebras) one is forced to work with a suitable homotopy category.
In this category\, K-theory computations are made possible through the us
e of a Mayer-Vietoris sequence. The K-theory of a quantum space can be pro
moted from a plain abelian group to an augmented ring (in the sense of Car
tan-Eilenberg)\, giving a finer topological invariant. The construction of
this invariant suggests a notion of "topology" and "continuity" in the qu
antum setting (a kind of Grothendieck topology). This is a work in progres
s in collaboration with P.M. Hajac\, T. Maszczyk\, A. Sheu\, and B. Zielin

DESCRIPTION:Title: Index theory of unbounded Fredholm operators\nby Marina Prokhorova (
Technion) as part of Noncommutative Geometry in NYC\n\n\nAbstract\nIndex t
heory for norm continuous families of bounded Fredholm operators was devel
oped in the classical work of Atiyah\; its analog for self-adjoint operato
rs was developed in the work of Atiyah and Singer. The index theory of ell
iptic differential operators on closed manifolds is based on these classic
al results: one can pass from operators of positive order to operators of
zeroth order\, and such a transformation is continuous.\n\nHowever\, in ot
her situations one needs to deal with weaker topologies on the space of un
bounded operators. For example\, for elliptic boundary value problems on c
ompact manifolds with boundary\, the graphs of corresponding unbounded ope
rators depend continuously on parameter. The topology determined by passin
g from a closed operator to its graph is called the graph topology. The ho
motopy type of relevant spaces of unbounded Fredholm operators was determi
ned by M. Joachim in 2003.\n\nMy talk is devoted to an index theory of gra
ph continuous families of unbounded Fredholm operators in a Hilbert space.
I will show how this theory is related to the classical index theory of b
ounded Fredholm operators. The talk is based on my recent preprints arXiv:
2110.14359 and arXiv:2202.03337.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Nonformal deformations of algebras of holomorphic functions\nby Alex
ei Yu. Pirkovskii (HSE Moscow) as part of Noncommutative Geometry in NYC\n
\n\nAbstract\nFormal deformations of associative algebras are by now class
ical and relatively well-studied objects. They were introduced by Gerstenh
aber in 1964\, and they are interesting especially because of their relati
on to deformation quantization. By contrast\, the theory of nonformal defo
rmations is now at a much earlier stage of development. Roughly\, a gener
al feature of all existing approaches to nonformal deformations\, which di
stinguishes them from formal deformations\, is that the role of the "base"
ring is now played by a certain algebra of functions (continuous\, or smo
oth\, or holomorphic...) rather than by the algebra of formal power series
. This makes nonformal deformations quite attractive from the physical poi
nt of view\, because they allow evaluating the deformed star product at co
ncrete nonzero values of the deformation parameter (Planck's constant). In
this talk\, our main objects will be nonformal (or\, more exactly\, holom
orphic) deformations of the algebras of holomorphic functions on the polyd
isc and on the ball in $\\mathbb{C}^n$. We will discuss some properties of
such deformations and their relation to formal deformations. If time perm
its\, we will compare our approach to holomorphic deformations with S. Wal
dmann's approach\, which is better adapted to deformation quantization\, b
ut which applies only to some proper subalgebras of the algebras of holomo
rphic functions.\n

elating\nto work of Arveson from the sixties\, and extends related work of
Kakariadis and\nKatsoulis.\n\nWe also address stable isomorphism of opera
tor algebras\, in connection with a\nrecent work of Dor-On\, Eilers and Ge
ffen. Among others we show that if $\\mathcal{A}$\n and $\\mathcal{B}$ are
operator algebras with diagonals isomorphic to $c_0$ and \n$\\mathcal{K}$

DESCRIPTION:Title: $L_p$-bounds for pseudodifferential operators on curved noncommutative t
ori\nby Gihyun Lee (Ghent University) as part of Noncommutative Geomet
ry in NYC\n\n\nAbstract\nIn the theory of pseudodifferential operators\, o
ne of the most essential topics is the study of mapping properties of pseu
dodifferential operators between various kinds of function spaces. The inv
estigation of $L_p$-boundedness of pseudodifferential operators is particu
larly important\, considering its consequences for the regularity and exis
tence of solutions of PDEs.\n\nThe purpose of this talk is to discuss the
counterpart of this problem on noncommutative tori. Noncommutative tori ar
e the most intensively studied noncommutative spaces in noncommutative geo
metry and arise in various parts of mathematics and mathematical physics.
Pseudodifferential calculus on noncommutative tori was introduced in early
1980s by A. Connes\, and it has emerged as an indispensable tool in the r
ecent study of differential geometry of noncommutative tori. Meanwhile\, J
. Rosenberg introduced the notion of Riemannian metric on noncommutative t
ori a decade ago. In this talk\, I will first recall the notion of a curve
d noncommutative torus\, i.e.\, a noncommutative torus endowed with a Riem
annian metric in the sense of J. Rosenberg. I will then show the boundedne
ss of pseudodifferential operators on noncommutative $L_p$-spaces associat
ed with the volume form induced by a Riemannian metric. Based on joint wor
k with V. Kumar.\n

lgebras of surfaces describe a multiplication for curves on surfaces\, whi
ch remembers the poisson structure on the ring of regular functions of the

ahon and Wong\, show how skein algebras of punctured surfaces can be embed

rbolic geometry seen in Roger-Yang skein algebras and the quantum group co
module structure seen in stated skein algebras. This generalization is a
key tool in building a quantum trace map for degenerations (coming from fi

DESCRIPTION:Title: The radius of comparison of C (X) is about half the covering dimension o
f X\nby N. Christopher Phillips (University of Oregon and Fields Insti
tute for Research in Mathematical Sciences) as part of Noncommutative Geom
etry in NYC\n\n\nAbstract\nRecall that a C*-algebra $A$ has strict compari
son of projections\nif whenever $p$ and $q$ are projections in matrix alge
bras over $A$\,\nand $\\tau (p) < \\tau (q)$ for all tracial states $\\tau
$ on $A$\,\nthen $p$ is Murray-von Neumann subequivalent to $q$.\nIn conne
ction with the Elliott\nclassification program\, and because many simple C
*-algebras have\nvery few projections\, this has been extended to comparis
on of\ngeneral positive elements.\n(This will be explained in the talk.)\n
Strict comparison holds\nfor unital stably finite classifiable simple C*-a
lgebras.\nThe radius of comparison ${\\mathrm{rc}} (A)$ of a C*-algebra $A
$\nis a numerical measure of the failure of strict comparison.\nIt is zero
if strict comparison holds\,\nand in general is a not so well understood
kind of topological dimension.\n\nLet $X$ be a compact metric space.\nIt h
as been known for some time that ${\\mathrm{rc}} (C (X))$\nis at most abou
t half the covering dimension of $X$.\nIn 2013\, Elliott and Niu proved th
at ${\\mathrm{rc}} (C (X))$ is\,\nup to an additive constant\,\nat least h
alf the rational cohomological dimension of $X$.\nRecently\, we proved tha
t\, up to a slightly worse additive constant\,\n${\\mathrm{rc}} (C (X))$ i
s at least half the covering dimension of $X$\,\nwhich is sometimes much l
arger.\nThis shows that ${\\mathrm{rc}} (A)$\, like stable rank\, roughly\
ncorresponds to covering dimension\, not to rational or integral\ncohomolo
gical dimension\, and not to some previously unknown dimension.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: When amenable groups have real rank zero $C^*$-algebras?\nby Iason M
outzouris (Purdue University) as part of Noncommutative Geometry in NYC\n\
n\nAbstract\nFor every torsion free\, discrete and amenable group $G$\, th
e Kadison-Kaplansky conjecture has been verified\, so $C^*(G)$ has no nont
rivial projections. On the other hand\, every torsion element $g\\in G$\,
of order $n$\, gives rise to a projection $\\frac{1+g+...+g^{n-1}}{n}\\in
C^*(G)$. Actually\, if $G$ is locally finite\, then $C^*(G)$ is an AF-alge
bra\, so it has an abundance of projections. So\, it is natural to ask wh
at happens when the group has both torsion and\nnon-torsion elements. A re
sult on this direction came from Scarparo\, who showed that for every disc
rete\, infinite\, finitely generated elementary amenable group\, $C^*(G)$
cannot have real rank zero. In this talk\, we will explain why if $G$ is
discrete\, amenable and $C^*(G)$ has real rank zero\, then all elementary
amenable normal subgroups with finite Hirsch length must be locally finite

DESCRIPTION:Title: Partial Isometries Between Hilbert Modules\nby Michael Skeide (Unive
rsità degli Studi del Molise) as part of Noncommutative Geometry in NYC\n
\n\nAbstract\nHilbert modules are Banach spaces and share\, of course\, al
l their good properties. But geometrically they behave - as opposed with t
he very well-behaved Hilbert spaces - very much like pre-Hilbert spaces.\n
\nAs a common root of most problems - if not all - one may highlight the
fact that Hilbert modules need not be self-dual\; one of the most striking
consequences of missing self-duality is the fact that not all bounded mod
ules maps need to possess an adjoint. (Intimately related: not all closed
submodules are the range of a projection.) This raises the question how to
define isometries\, cosisometries\, and partial isometries between Hilber
t modules\, without requiring explicitly in the definition that these maps
are adjointable.\n\nWhile the definition of isometries (as inner product
preserving maps) is rather natural and well-known since long (they need no
t be adjointable)\, our definitions (proposed with Orr Shalit) of coisomet
ries (they turn out to be adjointable) and partial isometries (they need n
ot be adjointable) are rather recent.\n\nAs a specific problem\, we will a
ddress the question how to find a (reasonable) composition law among parti
al isometries (making them the morphisms of a category). It turns out that
for Hilbert spaces the problem can be solved\, while for Hilbert modules
we have to pass to the *partially defined* isometries. The proofs of some
of the intermediate statements explore typical features of proofs in Hilbe
rt module theory: Some are like those for Hilbert spaces\; some reduce the
proof (by means of a well-known technical tool) to that for Hilbert space
s\; and some are simply ``different''. (Of course\, the latter also for wo
rk Hilbert spaces\; but they are ``different'' from what you would write d
own with all you arsenal of Hilbert space methods at your disposal.)\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Metrics on doubles as an inverse semigroup\nby Vladimir Manuilov (Mo
scow State University) as part of Noncommutative Geometry in NYC\n\n\nAbst
ract\nUsually metrics do not form an algebraic structure. I was interested
in various metrics on two copies (double) of a metric space $(X\,d)$ such
that the metric on each copy is $d$\, and only distances between points o
n different copies of $X$ may vary. To my surprise\, if one passes from me
trics to their equivalence classes (either quasi-equivalence or coarse equ
ivalence) then the metrics on the double of $X$ form an inverse semigroup.
Inverse semigroups are similar to sets of partial isometries on a Hilbert
space\, and one may define a C*-algebra of an inverse semigroup along the
same guidelines as group C*-algebras. I shall speak about some results on
these inverse semigroups\, e.g. when they are commutative\, and when they
have a kind of finiteness property\, i.e. when the unit is Murray-von Neu
mann equivalent to a proper projection.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Cross-sectional C*-algebras of Fell bundles\nby Damián Ferraro (Dep
artamento de Matemática y Estadística del Litoral\, Uruguay) as part of
Noncommutative Geometry in NYC\n\n\nAbstract\nA Fell bundle (or C*-algebra
ic bundle) $B=\\{B_t\\}_{t\\in G}$ may be thought of as a kind of action o
f the base group $G$ on the C*-algebra $B_e$\, $e$ being the unit of $G.$
When doing so\, the full and reduced cross-sectional C*-algebras of $B$\,
$C^*(B)$ and $C^*_r(B)$ respectively\, become the full and reduced crossed
products of the action.\n\nIt is implicit in Exel-Ng's construction/chara
cterization of $C^*_r(B)$ that the induction of representations from $H:=\
\{e\\}$ to $G\,$ $U\\mapsto Ind_{H\\uparrow G}(U)\,$ and from $B_e$ to $B\
,$ $T\\mapsto Ind_{B_e\\uparrow B}(T)\,$ are intimately related and that b
oth can be used to define/describe $C^*_r(B).$ If $B$ is saturated\, the e
quivalence of the definitions is a straightforward consequence of Fell's a

losed subgroups $H$ of $G$ other than $\\{e\\}$ (even if $B$ is saturated)
.\nThe reduction of $B$ to $H\,$ $B_H:=\\{B_t\\}_{t\\in H}\,$ is a Fell bu

two candidates for the "reduced $H$-cross-sectional C*-algebra of $B$". W

DESCRIPTION:Title: From spectral triples in NCG to Grothendieck's inequalities in the theor
y of finite rank matrices\nby Erik Christensen (University of Copenhag
en) as part of Noncommutative Geometry in NYC\n\n\nAbstract\nWhile studyin
g properties of a spectral triple\, I realized that the Schur product - or
entry wise product of infinite matrices -- has a nice Stinespring repre
sentation as a completely bounded bilinear operator. On the other hand it
is well known that Grothendieck's inequality on bilinear forms has a dual
counterpart\, which describes certain properties of Schur multipliers. It
turned out that the theory of operator spaces and completely bounded multi
linear maps form a nice background to present some classical and some new
results on both the Schur product and on Grothendieck's inequalities. Part
of this will be extended to the non commutative Grothendieck inequality t
oo.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Approximation properties of discrete quantum groups\nby Jacek Krajcz
ok (Vrije Universiteit Brussel) as part of Noncommutative Geometry in NYC\
n\n\nAbstract\nIt is a classical result in abstract harmonic analysis\, th
at discrete group G is amenable if and only if its group von Neumann algeb
ra vN(G) has weak* CPAP (completely positive approximation property). Ther
e is also a variant of this result for weak amenability: G is weakly amena
ble if and only if vN(G) has weak* CBAP (completely bounded approximation
property). These equivalences remain true also for unimodular discrete qua
ntum groups\, which form a class of objects strictly containing discrete g
roups. It is however an open question\, whether approximation properties o
f vN(G) imply analogous one for G\, if G is a non-unimodular quantum group
. During the talk I will discuss how one can obtain positive results by co
nsidering vN(G) not just as a von Neumann algebra\, but as an operator mod
ule over $L^1(\\hat{G})$. If time permits\, I will also discuss a recent r
esult about multiplicativity of Cowling-Haagerup (weak amenability) consta
nt.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: A trace formula for foliated flows\nby Jesús A. Álvarez López (Un
iversity of Santiago de Compostela) as part of Noncommutative Geometry in
NYC\n\n\nAbstract\nIn the lecture\, I will try to explain the ideas of a r
ecent paper on the trace formula for foliated flows\, written in collabora
tion with Yuri Kordyukov and Eric Leichtnam. Let $\\mathcal{F}$ be a trans
versely oriented foliation of codimension one on a closed manifold $M$\, a
nd let $\\phi=\\{\\phi^t\\}$ be a foliated flow on $(M\,\\mathcal{F})$ (it
maps leaves to leaves). Assume the closed orbits of $\\phi$ are simple an
d its preserved leaves are transversely simple. In this case\, there are f
initely many preserved leaves\, which are compact. Let $M^0$ denote their
union\, $M^1=M\\setminus M^0$ and $\\mathcal{F}^1=\\mathcal{F}|_{M^1}$. We
consider two locally convex Hausdorff spaces\, $I(\\mathcal{F})$ and $I'(
\\mathcal{F})$\, consisting of the leafwise currents on $M$ that are conor
mal and dual-conormal to $M^0$\, respectively. They become topological com
plexes with the differential operator $d_{\\mathcal{F}}$ induced by the de
~Rham derivative on the leaves\, and they have an $\\mathbb{R}$-action $\\
phi^*=\\{\\phi^{t\\\,*}\\}$ induced by $\\phi$. Let $\\bar H^\\bullet I(\\
mathcal{F})$ and $\\bar H^\\bullet I'(\\mathcal{F})$ denote the correspond
ing leafwise reduced cohomologies\, with the induced $\\mathbb{R}$-action
$\\phi^*=\\{\\phi^{t\\\,*}\\}$. $\\bar H^\\bullet I(\\mathcal{F})$ and $\\
bar H^\\bullet I'(\\mathcal{F})$ are shown to be the central terms of shor
t exact sequences in the category of continuous linear maps between locall
y convex spaces\, where the other terms are described using Witten's pertu
rbations of the de~Rham complex on $M^0$ and leafwise Witten's perturbatio
ns for $\\mathcal{F}^1$. This is used to define some kind of Lefschetz dis
tribution $L_{\\rm dis}(\\phi)$ of the actions $\\phi^*$ on both $\\bar H^
\\bullet I(\\mathcal{F})$ and $\\bar H^\\bullet I'(\\mathcal{F})$\, whose
value is a distribution on $\\mathbb{R}$. Its definition involves several
renormalization procedures\, the main one is the b-trace of some smoothing
b-pseudodifferential operator on the compact manifold with boundary obtai
ned by cutting $M$ along $M^0$. We also prove a trace formula describing $
L_{\\rm dis}(\\phi)$ in terms of infinitesimal data from the closed orbits
and preserved leaves. Some term of the formula is related with Connes' No
n-Commutative Geometry of foliations with a transverse measure. This solve
s a conjecture of C. Deninger involving two leafwise reduced cohomologies
instead of a single one.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: The equivariant Fried conjecture for suspension flow\nby Peter Hochs
(Radboud University) as part of Noncommutative Geometry in NYC\n\n\nAbstr
act\nRay-Singer analytic torsion is a topological invariant of compact man
ifolds\, which can be used to distinguish between homotopy equivalent mani
folds that are not homeomorphic. The Ruelle dynamical zeta function is a p
roperty of flows on compact manifolds\, which encodes information on perio
dic flow curves. Interestingly\, the absolute value of this function at ze
ro is often equal to the analytic torsion of the manifold\, even though th
e latter does not involve the flow at all. Fried’s conjecture is the pro
blem to determine when this equality holds. With Saratchandran\, we constr
ucted equivariant versions of analytic torsion and the Ruelle zeta functio
n for proper group actions\, and posed the question when an equivariant ve
rsion of Fried’s conjecture holds. With Pirie\, we are investigating thi
s conjecture for a specific type of flows: suspension flows of diffeomorph
isms.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: $C^*$-extensions of non-self-adjoint dynamics\nby Mitch Hamidi (Embr

NYC\n\n\nAbstract\nGiven the action of a group G on a non-self-adjoint ope
rator algebra A\, the crossed product of A by G can be realized as the sub
algebra of a $C^*$-crossed product when the dynamics of G acting on A can
be extended to self-adjoint dynamics of G acting on a $C^*$-algebra. In th
is talk\, we characterize the existence of such a dynamical extension in t
erms of the boundary ideal structure for A in its maximal representation.
We define a lattice structure for an operator algebra’s completely isome
tric representation theory and discuss how one might recover the crossed p
roduct of an operator algebra in a representation lacking a self-adjoint d
ynamical extension.\n

as may be classified up to stable isomorphism using an invariant of K-theo
retic nature. This is contained in my recent preprint with Rasmus Bentman
n. The key idea is to classify $C^*$-correspondences from a graph $C^*$-a
lgebra to another $C^*$-algebra up to homotopy\, using some projections an
d unitaries in the target $C^*$-algebra. Since we classify correspondence
s up to homotopy\, we also classify general graph $C^*$-algebras up to hom
otopy equivalence. The relevant homotopies will automatically preserve ga
uge-invariant ideals\, and we may improve this to also preserve the ideals
that are not gauge invariant\, if these are present.\n
