Introduction to the gap labeling conjecture and dry Ten Martini Problem
In this talk, I will first introduce two equivalent formulations of the gap labeling conjecture: KTheory and dynamical system. Then I will introduce the (dry) Ten Martini Problem.

Quantitative continuity of spectral gap estimates
In this talk, I will present Section 7 of "On the Measure of the Spectrum
for the Almost Mathieu Operator"
by J. Avron1, P. H. M. v. Mouche, and B. Simon. More precisely, I will show that the spectrum of quasiperiodic operators is 1/2 Holder continuous with respect to the frequency.

Rotational C*algebras and Their Representations
During this talk, I will introduce rotational C*algebras and establish the role they play in the Choi, Elliot, and Yui paper. I will also discuss some of the theory of the representations of these C*algebras, as well as their projections, so that their Ktheory can be developed in subsequent talks.
