Generalisations of Roth's theorem on finite abelian groups
(University of Waterloo, 2012-12-18)
Roth's theorem, proved by Roth in 1953, states that when A is a subset of the integers [1,N] with A dense enough, A has a three term arithmetic progression (3-AP). Since then the bound originally given by Roth has been ...
The Fourier algebra of a locally trivial groupoid
(University of Waterloo, 2012-01-10)
The goal of this thesis is to define and study the Fourier algebra A(G) of a locally compact groupoid G. If G is a locally compact group, its Fourier-Stieltjes algebra B(G) and its Fourier algebra A(G) were defined by ...
Pick Interpolation and the Distance Formula
(University of Waterloo, 2012-05-09)
The classical interpolation theorem for the open complex unit disk, due to Nevanlinna and Pick in the early 20th century, gives an elegant criterion for the solvability of the problem as an eigenvalue problem. In the 1960s, ...
Representations of Operator Algebras
(University of Waterloo, 2012-05-11)
The following thesis is divided into two main chapters. In Chapter 2 we study isometric representations of product systems of correspondences over the semigroup 𝐍ᵏ which are minimal dilations of finite dimensional, fully ...
