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
