Title of Seminar:

Real C*-algebras and their K-theory

Speaker's Name:

Seminar Abstract:

We will give a general overview of real and complex C*- algebras and their K-theory.

This will include a discussion of a major classification theorem for a class of simple complex C*-algebras and a survey of recent results which may lead toward a similar result for real C*-algebras. Along the way, we will see several examples.
