Fibrodysplasia ossificans progressiva (FOP) is a rare autosomal dominant disorder of skeletal malformations and progressive extraskeletal ossification. We mapped FOP to chromosome 2q23-24 by linkageâ€¦ (More)

In this paper we introduce and study strongly singular maximal abelian selfâ€“adjoint subalgebras of type II1 factors. We show that certain elements of free groups and of nonâ€“elementary hyperbolicâ€¦ (More)

In this paper we consider two von Neumann subalgebras B0 and B of a type II1 factor N . For a map Ï† on N , we define â€–Ï†â€–âˆž,2 = sup{â€–Ï†(x)â€–2 : â€–xâ€– â‰¤ 1}, and we measure the distance between B0 and B byâ€¦ (More)

The diversity of bacteriophages in slurry from dairy cows remains largely unknown. Here, we report the draft genome sequences of 14 bacteriophages isolated from dairy cow slurry using Escherichiaâ€¦ (More)

In this paper we survey the field of Hochschild cohomology for von Neumann algebras. We describe the basic definitions and results without assuming background knowledge beyond some familiarity withâ€¦ (More)

The main result of this paper is that the kth continuous Hochschild cohomology groups Hk(M,M) and Hk(M, B(H)) of a von Neumann factor M âŠ† B(H) of type II1 with property Î“ are zero for all positiveâ€¦ (More)

The Laplacian (or radial) masa in a free group factor is generated by the sum of the generators and their inverses. We show that such a masa B is strongly singular and has Popa invariant Î´(B) = 1.â€¦ (More)

The purpose of this paper is to introduce and explore a new concept for Câˆ—-algebras: the notion of a norming Câˆ—-subalgebra. The precise definition is given in the next section, but in general termsâ€¦ (More)

Let A be an exact Câˆ—â€“algebra, let G be a locally compact group, and let (A, G, Î±) be a Câˆ—â€“dynamical system. Each automorphism Î±g induces a spatial automorphism AdÎ»g on the reduced crossed product AÃ—Î±â€¦ (More)

Let G be a locally compact group, Ï€ : G â†’ U(H) be a strongly continuous unitary representation, and CB(B(H)) the space of normal completely bounded maps on B(H). We study the range of the map Î“Ï€ :â€¦ (More)
