“Survey talk on von-Neumann algebras”

We survey some of the fundamental theory of von-Neumann algebras and their traces, while providing everyday examples. We will then talk a bit about abelian von-Neumann algebras, and their relationship to measure theory. Time permitting, we will talk about types decomposition for von-Neumann algebras.

**Michael Deveau, Department of Pure Mathematics, University of Waterloo **

“Bases for ML-Randomness”

We briefly recall the definition of a base for ML-randomness presented last time. The remaining portion of the talk will be spent stating and proving an important result about such sets, namely that every base for ML-randomness is low for K.

The University of Waterloo acknowledges that much of our work takes place on the traditional territory of the Neutral, Anishinaabeg and Haudenosaunee peoples. Our main campus is situated on the Haldimand Tract, the land granted to the Six Nations that includes six miles on each side of the Grand River. Our active work toward reconciliation takes place across our campuses through research, learning, teaching, and community building, and is centralized within our Indigenous Initiatives Office.
