Operator Algebra Seminars

Fri., Sep. 30, 2016 10:00 a.m. - Fri., Sep. 30, 2016 12:00 p.m.

Location: RIC 215

Speaker: Brian Ketelboeter

Title: Quantum Levy processes: a brief introduction

Abstract:

This talk focuses on the basic ideas of what a quantum Levy process is and some of the concepts that are associated with them. We will cover (in outline form) bi-algebras, quantum probability spaces and the quantum Levy processes themselves. Then we will talk about the Schurmann triple, named after M. Schurmann, who in the 1980's, developed the fundamental ideas.

This talk will be aimed at an audience familiar with operator algebras and will be very introductory in nature.
