Welcome

The Center for Noncommutative Geometry and Operator Algebras at Vanderbilt University consists of faculty members, postdocs, visitors and graduate students with scientific interests in noncommutative geometry, the theory of subfactors, von Neumann algebras, K-theory of operator algebras, operator theory, coarse geometry, index theory, analysis on manifolds, controlled topology, stratified spaces, harmonic analysis, quantum computing and quantum information theory. The group organizes a yearly school and international conference on noncommutative geometry and operator algebras. Each year a particular topic will be emphasized and the school will feature several mini-courses by leading experts.
