# Talks

I have been persuaded of the benefits of posting slides online after I give talks, so here we are.

- A non-commutative notion of separate continuity given to the Analysis seminar of TCD and UCD. About the paper: arXiv 1409.7302.
- Fourier Algebras to Quantum Groups. Pure Maths colloquia November 2014.
- I gave four lectures at the Fields Institute as part of the Theme Period on Operator Spaces, Locally Compact Quantum Groups and Amenability. My talks were an introduction to operator algebraic quantum groups. Videos of my talks can be viewed on Fields Video Archive. Here are local copies of the slides: Talk 1, Talk 2, Talk 3, Talk 4. Here is a list of further reading which appears to have disappeared from the Fields website.
- Almost periodic functionals: Talk given at: Banach Algebras 2013. In no way resembles the next talk...
- Almost periodic functionals: Talk given at 2nd QoP meeting: C*-algebras and Banach algebras.
- Groups meet Analysis: The Fourier Algebra: Colloquium style talk given at York, May 2013. Similar to Kent talk, but hopefully even less technical, as now a mathematics (not pure) colloquia.
- The Haagerup approximation property for discrete quantum groups: Talk at ICMS meeting on C*-algebras.
- Positive definite functions on locally compact quantum groups: Talk at Cergy-Pontoise (Slightly unsatisfactory website).
- "Algebraic quantum groups to compact quantum groups": A white-board talk at NAG 5.
- The Fourier Algebra: Colloquium style talk given at Kent, January 2013. I didn't use all the slides!
- Shift invariant preduals: This was a whiteboard talk at YFAG, so here are my hand-written notes. The paper is available on the arxiv.
- Compactifications of quantum groups: Talk given at Queen's University Belfast, October 2012.
- Completely Positive Multipliers: Talk given at the CEMPI Inaugural Conference, Lille, France, September 2012.
- Analysis in Non-Commutative Mathematics: Talk given at the Young Functional Analysts' Workshop 2012, Oxford, March 2012. Really an introduction to Compact Quantum Groups: in the small chance than anyone is interested, some further reading can be found here: Old reading list
- Shift invariant preduals of group algebras: Talk given at the Banach Algebras 2011 conference in Waterloo, Canada, August 2011. A differing take on the talk below!
- Shift-invariant preduals of $\ell^1(\mathbb Z)$: Talk given to the Analysis seminar at UCD, Dublin, February 2011.
- The Fourier algebra and homomorphisms: Talk given to the Analysis and Algebra seminar at Glagow, December 2010.
- Some operator algebra problems from Quantum Information: Talk given to the algebra seminar at Leeds, November 2010.
- Multipliers and Abstract Harmonic Analysis: Talk given at CAHAS 2010 August 2010. Printable version.
- Quantum groups by way of Operator algebras: Talk given At Belfast university, April 2010.
- Multipliers and the Fourier algebras, and non-commutative L^p spaces: Talk given at Birmingham University, March 2010. A third attempt on a theme!
- Multipliers of quantum groups from Hilbert C*-modules: Talk given at Lancaster University, March 2010.
- Multipliers and the Fourier algebras: Talk given at Nottingham University, January 2010. Somewhat similar to the talk beow.
- Multipliers and the Fourier algebras: Talk given at Banach Algebras 2009, Stefan Banach International Mathematical Center, Bedlewo, Poland. A handout version of the slides can be downloaded here.
- Biprojectivity and compact quantum groups: Colloquium talk given to the Pure Mathematics department as Leeds, April 2009. A handout version of the slides can be downloaded here.
- Weakly almost periodic functionals on the measure algebra [PDF]: Talks given at the CIRM, November 2008. This is very similar to the talk below, so the PDF file is just a printable version of my slides (as given to conference participants).
- Weakly almost periodic functionals on the measure algebra [PDF]: Talk given in Newcastle, October 2008.
- Compactifications and the Fourier algebra [PDF]: Talk given in Glasgow, February 2008.
- Quantum compactifications of the Fourier algebra [PDF]: Talk given at the Fields Institute, Toronto, December 2007. To my horror, they have recorded my talk, so the audio is available for download here.
- Compact Quantum Groups: Series of three talks in Leeds, November 2007. Here is a web-page with a reading list.
- Uniqueness of preduals [PDF]: Talk given at Banach Algebras 07, in Laval, July 2007. This bears some similarly to the two talks below.
- The predual of $l^1(G)$ [PDF]: Talk given in Leeds, May 2007. This is an extension of the BMC below immediately below.
- How to make the bilateral shift weak$^*$-continuous [PDF]: Talk given at the BMC in Swansea, April 2007.
- p-operator spaces and Figa-Talamanca-Herz algebras [PDF]: Talk given in February 2007, in Oxford and at Texas A+M.
- Operator spaces and the Sz-Nagy Similarity Problem [PDF]: Talk given to the junior seminar, November 2006, in Oxford.
- Involutions on algebras of operators [PDF]: Talk given in Glasgow, May 2006.
- Dual Banach algebras [PDF]: Talk given at the British Mathematics Conference, April 2006, in Newcastle.
