Groundwork for Operator Algebras Lecture Series

July 15 - 27, 2024


Using a combination of mini-courses, problem sessions, and expository talks, this program will provide graduate students with an accelerated introduction to the basics of operator algebras. GOALS aims to increase participation and retention in the field by persons from traditionally underrepresented groups by removing technical barriers to the field and building a strong community of support amongst the participants, contributors, and organizers. The program will conclude with a culminating workshop in which leading experts in operator algebras will provide accessible overviews of their research programs to participants.
