Title:Failure of the Weierstrass Preparation Theorem in Quasi-analytic Denjoy-Carleman Rings

Abstract In 1976 Childress proved Weierstrass Division failed in quasi-analytic Denjoy-Carleman rings. While Weierstrass Division implies the Weierstrass Preparation Theorem, the reverse is not known to hold. The question of whether the Weierstrass Preparation Theorem held for Denjoy-Carleman functions or not remained open for over 30 years. In joint work with Francesca Acquistapace, Fabrizio Broglia, Michail Bronshtein, and Nahum Zobin, we showed the Weierstrass Preparation Theorem fails for Denjoy-Carleman functions by proving a strong non-extension result.

Title:A descriptive set-theoretic view of classification problems in operator algebras

Abstract In the past 20 years, descriptive set theorists have developed a theory that provides a measure of relative complexity of equivalence relations. This theory has its roots in classical smooth/non-smooth distinction of Mackey, but provides a much more refined view of the complexity of concrete classification problems. In recent years, the complexity of classification problems in operator algebras (of von Neumann factors and of nuclear simple separable C* algebras) have been examined from the descriptive set-theoretic perspective. In this talk, I will give an overview of these developments.

Title:Eigenvalues and Best Sobolev Constants of Moving Domains

Abstract Let D be a bounded domain in Euclidean space, and suppose its boundary moves outward. It follows from definitions that the fundamental frequency of D is a nonincreasing function of time. I will present some estimates of this rate of decrease, and characterize the case of equality. This is joint work with Tom Carroll of the University of Cork and Moustapha Fall of AIMS Senegal.

Title:The noncommutative Schwartz space. Is it interesting?

Abstract The question `What is the noncommutative space of smooth functions' has been of interest for some time. We will focus on a concrete object that might play such a role. Motivation towards the research and properties of this object will be considered. In particular, we will try to describe some amenability properties of this noncommutative Frechet algebra.

Title:F-differentiable functions and F-quasianalyticity

Abstract Let X be a perfect, compact subset of the complex plane. We usually study those continuous, complex-valued functions f on X such that f has a continuous derivative at all points of X. Unfortunately, the collection of all such functions on X does not have desirable properties as a normed algebra of functions. In 2003, Bland and Feinstein introduced larger collections of continuous functions on X which have much more desirable properties as normed algebras. They studied those continuous functions on X for which there is an associated continuous function on X which `integrates correctly' along each path in a given collection F of rectifiable paths in X. We call these functions F-differentiable functions and they have similar properties to the continuous differentiable functions on X. In this talk, we discuss the algebras of F-differentiable functions, their properties, and a notion of quasianalyticity for these algebras.

Title:Elementary operators---still not elementary?"

Abstract Many properties of elementary operators on Banach algebras have been studied extensively by a large number of authors over several decades but still they defy a full structural understanding maybe the reason being that they appear naturally in many guises in many situations. I shall report on recent work with Nadia Boudi (2015) and my latest PhD student Matthew Young (2015/16) in which we try to understand when elementary operators are spectrally bounded or spectrally isometric. As so often, definitive results are only achieved for elementary operators of small length.
