Interactions between reversible and irreversible Operator Algebras.

Project description

New horizons in mathematics: there is no going back – or is there?

Most of us think of algebra as a subject in maths at school, expressing the relationships among unknowns or variables with equations and systems of equations. Among higher-level mathematicians, however, an algebra is not a subject area but a particular type of algebraic structure, a vector space and associated operations. Operator algebras are a special kind of algebra conceived in the 1930s and used since to shed light on and influence many areas of maths and physics, including dynamical systems theory, geometry, quantum mechanics and quantum information theory. The EU-funded IRIOA project will delve deeper into the interactions between two types of operator algebras, reversible and irreversible operator algebras, that have had a substantial influence on these topics and more.
