Kloosterman lecture by Garth Dales Algebras of continuous functions and set theory
Date/Location/time: October 12th, 2017, Snellius building, room 174, 16-17hr
Garth Dales (Lancaster University) has been appointed Kloosterman professor at the
Mathematical Institute of Leiden University during the month of October 2017, as a guest
of Marcel de Jeu. His research interests include Banach algebras, abstract harmonic analysis,
and fundamental mathematics. It is a tradition that these distinguished researchers give a
general lecture. His lecture ``Algebras of continuous functions and set theory'' is on the
interface of Banach algebras and set theory. The abstract is as follows:

We begin by considering some properties of an apparently-innocent-looking algebra, that of
all continuous functions on, say, the closed unit interval. This is a Banach algebra with
respect to the uniform norm. Is it a normed algebra for any other norm? An investigation of
this leads us to consider the size of the real line, the Continuum Hypothesis, and the role
of independence in set theory, and even to muse a little on the philosophy of mathematics;
foundations have an impact on what we do in `real mathematics'.
We are also led to Hausdorff's theory of the order-properties of totally ordered sets, to
Hahn's construction of large ordered felds, to ultraproducts, to the existence of something
similar to a modulus on the finite elements of non-standard models of the real
line, and to consideration of a ?grown-up version' of the real numbers?.
