IGA/AMSI Workshop on Representation Theory and Operator Algebras

Date & Venue: 1–5 July 2013; The University of Adelaide, Adelaide, Australia.

This interdisciplinary workshop will be about

  • aspects of representation theory (in the sense of Harish-Chandra),
  • aspects of noncommutative geometry (in the sense of Alain Connes), and
  • aspects of operator K-theory (in the sense of Gennadi Kasparov).

It features the renowned speaker, Professor Nigel Higson (Penn State University).

Lecture Series by Nigel Higson

  • Lecture 1: The Geometry of the Weyl Character Formula
  • Lecture 2: A Sketch of Harish-Chandra's Theory for Noncompact Groups
  • Lecture 3: Baum–Connes versus Beilinson–Bernstein
  • Lecture 4: Contractions of Lie Groups and the Mackey Analogy
  • Lecture 5: On the Category of Tempered Representations

There will be additional talks given by invited speakers.
