Connes's Bicentralizer Problem

Amine Marrakchi
(ENS Lyons)
Abstract

In the world of von Neumann algebras, the factors that do not have a trace, the so-called type III factors, are the most difficult to study. Some of their key structural properties are still not well-understood. In this talk, I will give a gentle introduction to Connes's Bicentralizer Problem, which is the most important open problem in the theory of type III factors. I will then present some recent progress on this problem and its applications.
