Some new equivalences of Anderson’s paving conjectures

  title={Some new equivalences of Anderson’s paving conjectures},
  author={Vern I. Paulsen and M. Raghupathi},
Anderson's paving conjectures are known to be equivalent to the Kadison-Singer problem. We prove some new equivalences of Anderson's conjectures that require the paving of smaller sets of matrices. We prove that if the strictly upper triangular operators are paveable, then every 0 diagonal operator is paveable. This result follows from a new paving condition for positive operators. In addition, we prove that if the upper triangular Toeplitz operators are paveable, then all Toeplitz operators… 
Paving small matrices and the Kadison-Singer Extension Problem II—computational results
This article is part exposition of a recent rather technical paper of the last two authors on matrix pavings related to the 1959 Kadison-Singer Extension Problem and part a report on further
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
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
A Discussion of the Kadison-Singer Conjecture
The Kadison-Singer problem is a major result in operator theory, recently proven by Marcus, Spielman and Srivastava. Since its formulation in 1959, it has generated a significant amount of interest,

The Kadison–Singer and Paulsen Problems in Finite Frame Theory
We now know that some of the basic open problems in frame theory are equivalent to fundamental open problems in a dozen areas of research in both pure and applied mathematics, engineering, and
These notes cover various topics in C*-algebras and functional analysis related to the Kadison-Singer Problem[13]. They are intended for an audience that is familiar with some of the basic results in
Consequences of the Marcus/Spielman/Srivastava Solution of the Kadison-Singer Problem
It is known that the famous, intractable 1959 Kadison-Singer problem in C∗-algebras is equivalent to fundamental unsolved problems in a dozen areas of research in pure mathematics, applied
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


The paving conjecture is equivalent to the paving conjecture for triangular matrices
We resolve a 25 year old problem by showing that The Paving Conjecture is equivalent to The Paving Conjecture for Triangular Matrices.
Logmodularity and isometries of operator algebras
We generalize some facts about function algebras to operator algebras, using the noncommutative Shilov boundary or C*-envelope first considered by Arveson. In the first part we study and characterize

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.
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
Analytic functions and logmodular Banach algebras
The first part of this paper presents a generalization of a portion of the theory of analytic functions in the unit disc. The theory to be extended consists of some basic theorems related to the
