BEN GURION UNIVERSITY OF THE NEGEV DEPARTMENT OF MATHEMATICS ================================== Operator and System Theory Seminar ================================== SPEAKER: Orr Shalit, BGU TITLE: Dilation theory in finite dimensions DATE: Monday, November 28, 2011 PLACE: Room -101, Mathematics Building, BGU TIME: 14:10 ABSTRACT: Traditionally, "dilation theory" belongs to the realm of operator theory on infinite dimensional spaces. Is there an effective version of dilation theory that does not require infinite dimensional spaces? If so, does this theory teach us something new? I hope to convince you that the answer to both questions is "yes". The talk is based on joint works with Eliahu Levy and John McCarthy.
