# Operator Theory, Operator Algebras, and Applications

This book offers a presentation of some new
trends in operator theory and operator algebras, with a view to their
applications. It consists of separate papers written by some of the
leading practitioners in the field. The content is put together by the
three editors in a way that should help students and working
mathematicians in other parts of the mathematical sciences gain
insight into an important part of modern mathematics and its
applications.

While different specialist authors are outlining new results in
this book, the presentations have been made user friendly with the aid
of tutorial material. In fact, each paper contains three things: a
friendly introduction with motivation, tutorial material, and new
research. The authors have strived to make their results relevant to
the rest of mathematics. A list of topics discussed in the book
includes wavelets, frames and their applications, quantum dynamics,
multivariable operator theory, \(C^*\)-algebras, and von Neumann
algebras. Some longer papers present recent advances on particular,
long-standing problems such as extensions and dilations, the
Kadison-Singer conjecture, and diagonals of self-adjoint
operators.

#### Readership

Graduate students and research mathematicians interested in theory of operators and operator algebras.
