A relationship between Hilbert space operator theory and moment problem theory is well known. The interplay between these two gave impetus for investigations that cover a variety of topics. These include the subnormality and complete hyperexpansivity of bounded and unbounded operators, weighted shifts of various types, composition operators, positive and conditional positive definiteness of sequences etc. The session focuses on these topics and more.

The interaction between analytic function spaces and operator theory is a fruitful area of modern analysis. Many problems in abstract operator theory become more approachable once the operators are unitarily transformed to analytic function spaces. A classical example is Beurling’s theorem on invariant subspaces of the unilateral shift operator. The focus of this special session is on analytic function spaces and operators acting on them. Spaces that are frequently used in operator theory include the Hardy space, the Bergman space, the Dirichlet space, and the Fock space. Operators on analytic function spaces that are extensively studied in recent years include Toeplitz operators, Hankel operators, and composition operators.

Banach space theory, and more generally, Functional Analysis and Operator Theory, remains an important topic in Mathematics, not the least because of its deep connections with many other branches of Mathematics and the numerous practical applications in modern day society. In recent times, various analytic methods, including but not limited to Birkhoff-James orthogonality, have been used to understand the geometry of Banach spaces. On the other hand, geometric observations in Minkowski planes have motivated several analytic notions, such as those of (left and right) symmetric points in Banach spaces and their connections with extreme contractions and isometries. This interplay between analytic and geometric ideas in the framework of Banach spaces is the main theme of our proposed session. Apart from being interesting in its own right, this particular area of research is also important from the perspectives of approximation theory and optiomization theory. The proposed session is planned to consist of the talks of some of the experts working in the broad area of geometry of Banach spaces. It is reasonable to expect that the talks to be presented at the proposed session will cover a broad spectrum of topics of current interest, thus playing a positive role in the dissemination of knowledge, exchange of ideas, and the beginning of possible future collaborations.

The topic of this session are functional calculi, especially analytic functional calculi for Hilbert and Banach space operators in one and several variables. A particular focus lies on spectral constants and spectral sets. In recent years, there has been a surge of activity in this area. In the context of Crouzeix’s conjecture, this session aims to address recent developments in determining the optimal spectral constant for the numerical range. Moreover, we intend to cover applications of functional calculi to operator semi-groups, as well as functional calculi for operator tuples.

Here are some sample topics of the session to be considered, it does not mean you  are restrained from going beyond the scope as long as it is relevant.

Both topics  “Hilbert space methods” and “quantum physics”  pretty much coexist enriching each the other.  “Hilbert space methods”  may upgrade the following two aspects:
(a) L2 spaces technique with measure theoretic nuances, this may include some spectral problems (even indefinite) if they lead to quantum physics;  
(b) reproducing kernel Hilbert space approach as it is the proper vehicle for spaces of holomorphic functions and those alike (for instance Segal-Bargmann as well as their generalisations).  Among them in this approach we have to mention Fox's construction of symmetric space and those alike, which already enjoy quite a number of extensions.

The case (a) prompts more general concepts like rigged Hilbert spaces or what is paving the way to the case (b) Laurent Schwartz kernel theorem or even more appropriate a forgotten "Pedrick's tilde correspondence"  linking the scalar case and RKHS of functions being operators defined by duality in the functional analytic sense.

Needless to say bounded and unbounded operators (or even linear relations) in any of these cases play the vital role with dilations, extensions including those positive operator valued measure are on the top. The Hilbert space environment as mentioned in (a) and (b) and the operators acting therein are instrumental; seemingly the case (b) is a common body for spaces of holomorphic functions which create a solid part of "quantum physics".

Referring more directly to the other passage, that is to "quantum physics" let us mention (in particular) orthonormal and biorthonormal sets of vectors, frames and coherent states (also those ’a la Horzela- Szafraniec) as well as bicoherent states. Within this scope any kind of quantisation scheme fits in well, in full or in truncated form. Let us emphasise what we mean by “quantum physics” does not necessarily coincide with “mathematical physics” as it appears in Session 14. Our intension might be to provide with an alternative point of view of those items which are manifested in the description of Session 20.

Notice that Sessions 2 and 21 are concerned with moment problems which sometimes have a common point with our topic. Apparently this includes the theory of orthogonal polynomials and special functions with its rich analytic theory.

The Session 4 is in relation to what we intend to develop here.

Model spaces, orthogonal complements of Beurling invariant subspaces for the classical shift on the Hardy space, are ubiquitous in operator theory and function theory. Indeed, in operator theory compressions of the shift to model spaces represent certain classes of Hilbert space contractions. In function theory, model spaces consist of pseudocontinuable functions and this have many fascinating properties. Recently, through work initiated by Sarason, model spaces are being explored through the lens of truncated Toeplitz operators. We propose a special session of roughly 20-25 speakers on model spaces and their close cousins the de Branges-Rovnyak spaces.

Energy based modeling via port-Hamiltonian (pH) systems has become a very important feature of modern systems and control approaches. PH systems generalize Hamiltonian systems, in the sense that conservation of energy for Hamiltonian systems is replaced by a dissipation inequality. The physical properties of pH systems are encoded in the algebraic structure of the coefficient matrices and in geometric structures associated with the flow of the differential equation. This leads to a remarkably robust modeling paradigm that greatly facilitates the combination and manipulation of pH systems.  In particular, the family of pH systems is closed under power-conserving interconnection;  model reduction of pH systems via Galerkin projection yields (smaller) pH systems; and conversely, pH systems are easily extendable, allowing to increase the range of applications while ensuring that basic conservation principles remain to hold. Furthermore, pH systems have shown their versatility both for finite-dimensional and infinite-dimensional linear systems, as well as for nonlinear physical systems.
      This section will present all major aspects of pH systems, including modeling, numerical methods, control theory, operator theory and functional analysis.

In this Session we intend to present recent developments in the wide area of noncommutative probability and their applications to operator algebras and in operator theory. Noncommutative probability is based on various notions of independences, which are meaningful for elements of arbitrary *-algebras. These notions include freeness of Voiculescu, monotone independence of Muraki, Boolean independence and mixtures of them. Models of such independences are given by algebras generated by creation and annihilation operators acting on various deformations of the full Fock space, which produce new interesting examples of operator algebras to investigate. On the other hand, classical properties enjoyed by commutative random variables are also generalized to these noncommutative settings. This includes studies of various convolutions of probability measures described by appropriate moment-cumulant relations. Deformations of measures and convolutions can be generalized to the level of operators, which leads to new results in operator theory.

The theory of operator systems and operator spaces originates in work of Stinespring and Arveson from the sixties. The theory has subsequently experienced remarkable growth, and has found significant applications in operator algebras and beyond. Arveson's original goal was the development of an abstract framework for dilation theory, along with a corresponding theory of boundaries for operator algebras. A complete realization of this goal took many years to fully materialize, and required deep work by numerous mathematicians. A crucial development was Hamana's introduction of injective envelopes for operator systems, along with his corresponding proof of the existence of the C*-envelope. These ideas have recently found exciting new applications, for example to the ideal structure of operator algebras arising from noncommutative dynamics, to the Hao-Ng isomorphism problem, and to the study of co-universal C*-algebras algebras. The purpose of this special session is to provide a detailed picture of the many applications of operator space techniques in operator algebras, and to bring together practitioners within these diverse areas.

The theory of operator systems and operator spaces originates in work of Stinespring and Arveson from the sixties. The theory has subsequently experienced remarkable growth, and has found significant applications in operator algeClifford analysis, and more generally hypercomplex analysis, is an emergent field with a wide range of applications, from quantum mechanics to modern signal processing. As such it plays an increasingly important role, and deserves a central place in IWOTA meetings. It is dedicated to the extension of classical analysis to non-commutative structures while focusing on the study of functions belonging to the null-space of a Dirac operator. This session aims to invite experts to present their latest advances related to Operator Theory in Clifford analysis, as well as its applications to physics, numerical analysis of PDEs, development of a spectral theory for quaternion operators, linear systems, and others.

        Positivity plays a major role in modern operator theory. In this session we aim to discuss two major developments which have been in the focus of recent research.       
  • In the theory of dynamical systems, techniques that employ the so-called Koopman operator of the system - a positive linear operator on an infinite dimensional space which encodes all information of the underlying non-linear system - plays an increasingly prominent role. It allows to approach topological, measure-preserving and smooth dynamics from an operator theoretic perspective.
  • The asymptotic behavior of operators and operator semigroups is much more accessible under the assumption of positivity (which is automatically fulfilled in many applications). A variety of new methods have been developed to study the long-term behavior of positive one-parameter operator semigroups. We intend to discuss recent progress in these topics, and to identify and highlight possible connections to other fields.

The spectral theory of non-selfadjoint operators has seen steadily growing interest in the last decades for at least two reasons. Firstly, non-selfadjoint operators are ubiquitous in mathematical physics, starting from classical fields such as resonances in quantum mechanics over damped wave equations in elasticity theory, flows of viscous compressible fluids in hydrodynamics to highly topical areas such as photonics and phononics. Secondly, non-selfadjoint operators exhibit a rich variety of surprising phenomena and pose interesting new challenges, such as unpleasant resolvent growth, high sensitivity of spectra to perturbations, spectral pollution outside of essential spectral gaps or spectral invisibility  in numerical approximations. This special session is dedicated to recent developments in this exciting area of operator theory and its applications.
