Brief description Equilibrium states and fine structure for operator algebras. This project is in pure mathematics, in the broad area of functional analysis, and focuses specifically on operator algebras. Kubo-Martin-Schwinger (KMS) states on operator algebras encode equilibria of C*-algebraic dynamical systems. This project aims to take a novel view of KMS data as a repository of fine operator-algebraic structure. It aims to develop a theory whereby KMS states recover structural details like primitive-ideal structure and simplicity. The project is expected to determine to what extent the KMS simplex of combinatorial operator algebra remembers underlying combinatorial data. It also aims to explore KMS states on combinatorial operator algebras as a new point of interaction between the two main branches of modern operator-algebra theory.
