We prove some new equivalences of the paving conjecture and obtain some estimates on the paving constants. In addition we give a new family of counterexamples to one of the Akemann-Anderson conjectures. 

An introduction to the Kadison-Singer Problem and the Paving Conjecture

We give a gentle introduction to the famous Kadison-Singer problem, aimed at readers without much background in functional analysis or operator theory. We explain why this problem is equivalent to

Paving small matrices and the Kadison-Singer extension problem

We compute paving parameters for classes of small matrices and the matrices that yield them. The convergence to 1 or not of the sequence of these parameters is equivalent to the Kadison-Singer

THE KADISON-SINGER PROBLEM AND THE UNCERTAINTY PRINCIPLE

We compare and contrast the Kadison-Singer problem to the Uncertainty Principle via exponential frames. Our results suggest that the Kadison-Singer problem, if true, is in a sense a stronger version

CONCRETE CONSTRUCTIONS OF NON-PAVABLE PROJECTIONS

It is known that the paving conjecture fails for 2-paving projections with constant diagonal 1/2. But the proofs of this fact are existence proofs. We will give concrete examples of these projections

The Kadison-Singer Problem

We give self-contained presentation of results related to the Kadison-Singer problem, which was recently solved by Marcus, Spielman, and Srivastava. This problem connects with unusually large number

Interlacing families II: Mixed characteristic polynomials and the Kadison{Singer problem

We use the method of interlacing polynomials introduced in our previous article to prove two theorems known to imply a positive solution to the Kadison{Singer problem. The rst is Weaver’s conjecture

THE BOURGAIN-TZAFRIRI CONJECTURE AND CONCRETE CONSTRUCTIONS OF NON-PAVABLE PROJECTIONS

It is known that the Kadison-Singer Problem (KS) and the Paving Conjecture (PC) are equivalent to the Bourgain-Tzafriri Con- jecture (BT). Also, it is known that (PC) fails for 2-paving projections

Algorithmic constructions of unitary matrices and tight frames

TLDR
A number of algorithms for constructing unitary matrices and tight frames with specialized properties, including the Kadison-Singer Problem and equiangular tight frames are given.

PAVING AND THE KADISON-SINGER PROBLEM

This is an introduction to problems surrounding the Paving Conjecture. 1. Paving Parameters and Notation Notation 1.1. Given an orthonormal basis {ei}i∈I for a Hilbert space H, for any A ⊂ I we

Projections and idempotents with fixed diagonal and the homotopy problem for unit tight frames

We investigate the topological and metric structure of the set of idempotent operators and projections which have prescribed diagonal entries with respect to a Þxed orthonormal basis of a Hilbert

A Counterexample to a Conjecture of Akemann and Anderson

Akemann and Anderson made a conjecture about ‘paving’ projections in finite‐dimensional matrix algebras which, if true, would settle the well‐known Kadison–Singer problem. Their conjecture is

We will see that the famous intractible 1959 Kadison–Singer Problem in C*-algebras is equivalent to fundamental open problems in a dozen different areas of research in mathematics and engineering.

A Conjecture Concerning the Pure States of B(H) and a Related Theorem

The purpose of this note is twofold. First to present a conjecture concerning the form of the pure states on B(H) and second to prove a theorem related to this conjecture.

On a problem of Kadison and Singer.

In 1959, R. Kadison and I. Singer [10] raised the question whether every pure state (i.e. an extremal element in the space of states) on the C*-algebra D of the diagonal operators on (2 has a unique

Matrix norm inequalities and the relative Dixmier property

AbstractIf x is a selfadjoint matrix with zero diagonal and non-negative entries, then there exists a decomposition of the identity into k diagonal orthogonal projections {pm} for which $$\parallel

Extensions, restrictions, and representations of states on *-algebras

In the first three sections the question of when a pure state g on a C*-subalgebra B of a C*-algebra A has a unique state extension is studied. It is shown that an extension/is unique if and only if
