This conference will focus on applying set-theoretic analysis in the interactions between Banach spaces and compact spaces. Every Banach space X induces the dual ball BX* which is compact in the weak* topology and through which X can be sucessfully investigated. On the other hand every compact space K induces the Banach space C(K) of continuous functions on K, the construction which has been used to produce numerous conterexamples in the general Banach space theory. Combinatorial analysis of the geometry of Banach spaces and set-theoretic topology in the context of weak* and weak topologies associated with Banach spaces are the methods which turned out to be particularly sucessful in investigating the above intereactions.
We expect the participants to show up on Tuesday 16.04 afternoon. The talks will start on Wednesday 17.04 and will last until the lunchtime on Sunday 21.04.
Registration was open until March 9, 2013. Now it is closed. There is no registration fee.
Besides the invited lectures we expect short contributed talks. Due to limited time and scope of the conference we may not be able to accept all requests.
