20th ILAS Conference

Geometry and Order Structure in Matrices and Operators
Organizers: Fumio Hiai (Tohoku University).

Very important in matrix/operator theory and its applications are not only the (linear) algebraic and the analytic aspects but also the geometric aspect and the order (or conic) structure. Geometric approaches have been playing vital roles in matrix theory. For instance, the Thompson metric, the monotone Riemannian metrics due to Petz, the operator means due to Kubo-Ando, in particular, the geometric (or Karcher) operator mean and its several variable extension have been forming the basis of recent development of matrix theory. There are different order concepts for Hermitian matrices/operators, e.g., positive semidefiniteness order (the central notion in the Löwner theory), the spectral order, majorization order, etc., corresponding to which different types of matrix inequalities have been developed. In particular, the majorization technique is very strong to obtain symmetric norm and trace inequalities for matrices.

The aim of this contributed minisymposium is aimed to exchange new developments and ideas on geometry of matrices, various contraction properties of matrices, matrix/operator means, various matrix/operator inequalities, and their applications to quantum information etc. The scope of the minisymposium has some overlaps with that of the invited minisymposium "Matrix Inequalities and Operator Means." A multiple effect for both would be expected by collaboration.
