Maximal ideal space techniques in non-selfadjoint operator algebras
(University of Waterloo, 2013-04-26)
The following thesis is divided into two main parts. In the first part we study the problem of characterizing algebras of functions living on analytic varieties. Specifically, we consider the restrictions M_V of the ...
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 ...
Free semigroup algebras and the structure of an isometric tuple
(University of Waterloo, 2011-06-28)
An n-tuple of operators V=(V_1,…,V_n) acting on a Hilbert space H is said to be isometric if the corresponding row operator is an isometry. A free semigroup algebra is the weakly closed algebra generated by an isometric ...
