The 1959 Kadison-Singer Problem in C*-algebras has defied the best efforts of some of the most talented mathematicians of our time. Recently it was shown that this problem is equivalent to fundamental unsolved problems in a dozen areas of research in Pure Mathematics, Applied Mathematics and Engineering, including: operator theory, Banach space theory, harmonic analysis, and signal processing.
The specific purpose of this workshop is to bring together some of the top minds in the various areas of research impacted by the Kadison-Singer Problem to see if we can resolve the problem. For more realistic goals, we expect:
