Special Issue on Noncommutative Geometry and Quantum Groups in honor of Marc A. Rieffel
The Guest Editors for this special issue are
George Elliott (University of Toronto, Canada)
Piotr M. Hajac (Institute of Mathematics of Polish Academy of Sciences, Poland)
Hanfeng Li (University at Buffalo, USA)
Jonathan Rosenberg (University of Maryland, USA)
This special issue is celebration of the 75th birthday of
Marc A. Rieffel of the University of California, Berkeley,
one of the most influential mathematicians in the world in
the areas of noncommutative geometry and quantum groups.
It is connected with a Focus Program that was held on these
topics in June 2013 at the Fields Institute for Research
in Mathematical Sciences in Toronto.
Topics include
the interplay between noncommutative geometry and dynamical
systems, quantum groups and Hopf cyclic homology, and
noncommutative geometry and its connections to
index theory, representation theory, geometry,
and mathematical physics.
How to Submit an Article to the Issue.
Both original research articles and review papers will be considered (not published or considered for publication elsewhere).
There is no limit to the length of an article. Deadline for paper submission is January 31, 2014.
All articles will go
through the standard peer reviewing procedure of SIGMA.
