From Commutators to BCP Operators
July 27-31, 2015
Organizers: Hari Bercovici and Vern Paulsen

The concentration week From Commutators to BCP Operators forms one of the activities in the 2015 installment of the Workshop in Analysis and Probability which takes place every summer at Texas A&M University in College Station, Texas. The meeting will focus on the areas of mathematics developed by Carl Pearcy, who is turning 80 this year, and aims to promote connections between several different themes in operator theory which have been driving recent progress in the subject. Topics will include quasidiagonality, commutators of operators, and invariant subspaces.

The concentration week will be followed by SUMIRFAS, which runs from July 31 to August 2.

The Workshop is supported in part by grants from the National Science Foundation. Minorities, women, graduate students, and young researchers are especially encouraged to attend.
