Titles and Abstracts
 Maria Stella Adamo:
Reflection positivity twofold:
OS axioms as well as representations for Lie groups
Reflection positivity appears in OsterwalderSchrader’s (OS) reconstruction theorem, which gives conditions to be satisfied by correlations functions of a Euclidean field theory to produce a relativistic quantum field theory à la Wightman. Specifically, under OS axioms, one can construct the analytic continuation of Euclidean correlation functions encoding positivity to produce distributions which verify Wightman’s axioms. In a work in progress with Yuto Moriwaki and Yoh Tanimoto, we show OS axioms and, in particular, reflection positivity, for correlation functions defined through quasiprimary fields of a unitary VOA satisfying polynomial energy bounds. Reflection positivity can be investigated for unitary representations of Lie groups, where analytic continuation issues also appear. In collaboration with KarlHermann Neeb and Jonas Schober, we investigated reflection positivity for the integers, the real and circle groups. We used Hankel operators to produce reflection positive (RP) representations in the regular multiplicityfree case for the integers and real groups. For the circle group, we approached the study of RP representations by using RP functions. These functions can be analytically continued to the betastrip and are in 11 correspondence with continuous positive functions in the real line, which verify the betaKMS condition.
 Daniel Beltita:
On an inverse problem in representation theory of Lie groups
While a direct problem in representation theory would require the description of the representations of a group in terms of its structure, we plan to discuss an inverse problem in representation theory of Lie groups. More specifically, we focus on the question of the extent to which a Lie group can be distinguished from the other Lie groups in terms of its corresponding unitary representation theory. That question actually has an easy negative answer for several Lie groups. Yet, we provide affirmative answers for some other Lie groups, including the Heisenberg groups.
The presentation is based on joint work with Ingrid Beltita.  Helge Glöckner:
Regularity properties of infinitedimensional Lie groups
Consider a Lie group G modelled on a locally convex space, with neutral element e. A timedependent leftinvariant vector field on G is determined by a path c in the Lie algebra L(G) of G. If an integral curve starting at e exists for each smooth path c in L(G) and depends smoothly on c, then G is called regular. The question whether each Lie group (modelled on a sufficiently complete locally convex space) is regular has remained open since the 1980s, when John Milnor first introduced the concept. It is one of the miracles of the theory that regularity could be established for all concrete examples, despite the absence of a general argument. In fact, most examples even have stronger regularity properties: smooth paths can be replaced with continuous paths in the definition of regularity, or with Bochner integrable functions.
The talk will provide an introduction to the topic and describe some recent results.  Joachim Hilgert:
Pairing formulas for resonant and coresonant states
Let M be a locally symmetric space of negative curvature. Based on ideas of Patterson and Sullivan one can construct geometric measures on the geodesic boundary of M and from that what’s now called BowenMargulisSullivan measures on the sphere bundle invariant under the geodesic flow. The ThurstonSullivan „smearing argument´´ allows to estimate the total volume of these invariant measures by L^{2}norms of certain eigenfunctions of the positive LaplaceBeltrami operator L on M. In the case of compact M one can associate distributions on the sphere bundle with eigenfunctions of L by a quantization procedure (following AnantharamZelditch, who introduced them for hyperbolic surfaces, these distributions are called PattersonSullivan distributions rather than BowenMargulisSullivan distributions). In this case, using group theory, the „smearing estimate´´ can be made much more precise by turning it into an equality equating the evaluation of the PattersonSullivan distribution with the L^{2}norm of the corresponding eigenfunction. Polarizing this equality one obtains the pairing formula from the title. In this talk I will discuss the pairing formula, some applications and its analogon for finite graphs.

Localization of positive energy representations for gauge groups and diffeomorphism groups
Let G be a Lie group, equipped with a 1parameter group of automorphisms. A positive energy representation is a projective unitary representation of G that extends to the semidirect product R×G in such a way that the generator of the Raction has spectrum bounded from below. We consider two situations:
1) G is the group of compactly supported diffeomorphisms of a manifold M.
2) G is the group of compactly supported gauge transformations of a principal fibre bundle over M.
The 1parameter group of automorphisms is induced from a fixedpoint free flow on M (in case 1), or from a lift of this flow to the principal bundle (in case 2). We show that positive energy representations are either trivial (in case 1), or localize at a 1dimensional, Requivariantly embedded submanifold of M (in case 2).
This is joint work with KarlHermann Neeb and Milan Niestijl.  Timothée Marquis:
On the centre of IwahoriHecke algebras
IwahoriHecke algebras C_{q}(W) are deformations of the group algebra of a Coxeter group W. They are intimately related with the representation theory of groups with a BNpair whose associated building is locally finite (such as KacMoody groups over finite fields). We recently proved that the centre of C_{q}(W) is trivial (in the sense that it only consists of the constant functions) whenever W is of (irreducible) indefinite type — when W is of finite or affine type, this is not true anymore. This is a consequence of a purely Coxeter grouptheoretic result on conjugacy classes of W. After reviewing the context and motivation for this latter result, I will explain the key ideas behind its (partly geometric, partly combinatorial) proof.
This is joint work with Sven Raum.  Vincenzo Morinelli:
A New AnalyticalGeometric Approach to Algebraic Quantum Field Theory
In this presentation, we will provide an overview of the analysis developed in recent years, in collaboration with K.H. Neeb and G. Ólafsson, regarding a new analyticalgeometric approach to Algebraic Quantum Field Theory. We will explore the deep relationship between the geometry of standard subspaces, the geometry of Euler elements in the Lie algebra of a Lie group and the geometry of an Algebraic Quantum Field Theory. We will also discuss the implications of this analysis for representation theory, standard subspace theory and the algebraic approach to Quantum Field Theory.

Intertwining differential operators
The wave equation, Dirac’s equation, and Maxwell’s equations are basic in classical mathematical physics. They are also examples of differential operators with many symmetries, namely they are intertwining operators for representations of Lie groups acting in spacetime such as the conformal group of Minkowski space. We shall give more examples from the representation theory of semisimple Lie groups related to Verma modules and principal series representations.  Hadi Salmasian:
Weyl algebras, quantum groups, and interpolation polynomials
The algebra of invariant polynomial differential operators on a multiplicityfree Gspace, where G is a reductive group, has a distinguished basis that generalize the classical Capelli operators. Kostant proposed to compute the spectrum of this basis, and subsequent work by KostantSahi and then Sahi resulted in a family of symmetric polynomials that are usually called interpolation Jack polynomials. In this talk we describe qdeformations of the above results, connecting interpolation Macdonald polynomials to spectra of suitably defined qdifferential operators associated to quantum symmetric spaces of U_q(gl_n). This talk is based on a joint project with G. Letzter and S. Sahi.  Cornelia Vizman:
Universal central extension of the Lie algebra of exact divergencefree vector fields
Two conjectures on universal central extensions of Lie algebras of vector fields are due to Claude Roger [2]. The one about the universal central extension of the Lie algebra of Hamiltonian vector fields is proven in [1].
In this talk I will explain how to solve the second one: the universal central extension of the Lie algebra of exact divergence free vector fields. Unlike the Hamiltonian setting, the divergence free setting requires a detour into the realm of Leibniz algebras.

Factor systems as a computational framework for noncommutative principal bundles
Free actions, in the sense of Ellwood, provide a natural framework for C*algebraic noncommutative principal bundles, which are becoming increasingly prevalent in various applications to noncommutative geometry and mathematical physics. One of the key features of free actions of compact quantum groups are their associated factor systems, which make them accessible to classification, Ktheoretic considerations, and computations in general. In this talk we give an introduction to the theory of factor systems for free actions of compact quantum groups, followed by a discussion of various applications.
