Operator Theory Seminar

Speaker: 
Krishnendu Khan, Vanderbilt University
Topic: 
On the Von Neumann algebraic semidirect product rigidity

Abstract:
Recovering algebraic features of a group $G$ from the group von Neumann algebra $L(G)$ is a problem of central importance in the theory of von Neumann algebras. In my talk, I shall give new classes of examples of groups for which the semidirect product feature is remembered by the group von Neumann algebra. This talk is based on joint work with Ionut Chifan and Sayan Das.
