Brief description Operator algebras encode a kind of virtual space which is very different from the visible three-dimensional world. This is the arena of quantum mechanics. This project will adapt the tools of classical topology - the study of space and shape - to probe the structure of virtual space and glean new insights into its peculiar properties.
