Edward McDonald (NSW)
Dixmier traces and limit sets of quasi-Fuchsian groups
Abstract: Alain Connes in 1994 provided a formula for integration against the Hausdorff measure on the limit set of a quasi-Fuchsian group in terms of a Dixmier trace. This talk discusses the formulation of this result and its proof.

Chris Linden (UIUC Math)
Quasidiagonality of Nuclear C*-Algebras
Abstract: Tikuisis, White, and Winter have shown that faithful traces on separable, nuclear C*-algebras which satisfy the UCT are quasidiagonal. As a corollary, the reduced group C*-algebra of an amenable group is quasidiagonal. I will discuss Schafhauser's recent proof of this theorem using the extension theory of C*-algebras.
