Titre Bounded normal generation for von Neumann algebras and applications
Horaire14:00 à 15:00
RésumeIn this talk I will present joint work with Andreas Thom on bounded normal generation (BNG) for projective unitary groups of von Neumann algebras. We say that a group has (BNG) if the conjugacy class of every nontrivial element and of its inverse generate the whole group in finitely many steps. After explaining how one can prove (BNG) for the projective unitary group of a finite factor, I plan to present applications to automatic continuity of homomorphisms.
If time permits I will close the talk with recent results on uncountable cofinality and the Bergman property for unitary groups of von Neumann algebras.
