Title: Some Analysis Aspects in Subfactor Theory 

Abstract: One of the most fascinating aspects about non-commutative spaces (aka von Neumann algebras), is the way their building data, which is often geometric in nature, impacts on the properties of their quantized symmetries. This is particularly the case for II1 factors, where symmetries are encoded by their subfactors of finite Jones index. I will discuss some results and open problems that illustrate the unique interplay between analysis and algebra/combinatorics entailed by this interdependence, that’s specific to subfactor theory.
