distance for quantum metric spacesColloquium
|Speaker: ||Prof. Marc Rieffel, UC Berkeley|
|Location: ||593 Kerr|
|Start time: ||Mon, Nov 27 2000, 4:10PM|
I will give the definition of
"compact quantum metric spaces", with motivation and examples, including quantum tori.
Then I will recall the definition of Gromov-Hausdorff distance for ordinary compact metric
spaces, and show how to adapt this definition to quantum metric spaces. I will discuss its
properties. Finally I will show that this notion applies nicely to the quantum tori.
