Richard Kadison and his mathematical legacy - A memorial conference



University of Copenhagen - 29-30 November 2019

This memorial conference for Richard Kadison (1925-2018) is held within the framework of the traditional annual Danish-Norwegian operator algebras meetings, from the perspective of his strong and vital ties with the operator algebras community in Denmark and Norway, throughout his long life.
We wish to honor Dick's fundamental contributions, pivotal role and lifelong devotion to the growth and prominence of the field of operator algebras, and feature frontline current research in this area, with important interconnections to other subjects of mathematics and mathematical physics.


 devotion to the field of operator algebras during his long life, and to feature frontline research in operator algebras and its applications in mathematics and physics.
