## Mathematical Physics and Operator Algebras

•  Roy Araiza, Purdue University
•  Operator Spaces and Operator Systems: An Exposition
•  09/21/2020
•  2:00 PM - 2:50 PM
•  Online (virtual meeting)

During this lecture I will give an overview of the history and theory of operator spaces and operator systems. These "matrix normed spaces'' and "matrix ordered $*$-vector spaces'' arose in a somewhat natural fashion and the study of these objects is motivated by problems that arise when studying the "classical'' theory such as C*-algebras. After going over necessary background for both objects I will discuss how operator space and operator system theory were applied to approaching and solving problems in operator algebras.
