Event № 452
The Choquet order on measures is used to establish that states on a function system always have a representing measure supported on the set of extreme points of the state space (in a technical sense). We introduce a new operator-theoretic order on measures, and prove that it is equivalent to the Choquet order. This leads to some improvements in the classical theory, but more importantly it leads to some new operator-theoretic consequences. In particular, we establish Arveson’s hyperrigidity conjecture for function systems. This yields a significant strengthening of the classical approximation theorems of Korovkin and Saskin. This is joint work with Matthew Kennedy.
The lecture will take place in Amado 233 (NOTE THE UNUSUAL ROOM).
