Functional and nonlinear analysis workshop

 

Keynote Lectures via Access Gridcarma

Keynote 1. Saturday 2 October 2:00 pm

Title: Fixed point property for Banach algebras associated to locally compact groups

Speaker: Professor Anthony Lau, University of Alberta

Professor Lau is known world wide for his work on Banach algebras, in particular group algebras and recently the determination of classes of such algebras that enjoy the fixed point property for nonexpansive mapping on closed bounded convex sets.

 

Keynote 2. Sunday 3 October 9:30 am

Title: Grothendieck and Vector Measures

Speaker: Professor J. Diestel, Kent State University

Professor Diestel is an internationally renowned expositor and expert on the Geometric theory of Banach spaces and on Grothendieck’s theory and operator ideals.

 

Keynote 3. Monday 4 October, 9:30 am

Title: Analysis for Radical Banach Algebras

Speaker: Professor George W. Willis, University of Newcastle

Professor Willis is recognized for groundbreaking work in the theory of totally disconnected topological groups, the approximation property in Banach spaces and is currently developing the analogue of a spectral theory for radical algebras.

 

Venue: via AGR, from the University of Newcastle
