In this program, we plan to touch upon various classical as well as modern aspects of operator theory. In particular, we focus on topics from function theory, graph theory, spectral theory, representation theory and Quantum groups etc.

The topics are listed as follows:

Positive definiteness, Interpolation problem, operator-theoretic invariants associated with directed graphs, Hilbert space operators in quantum mechanics, representation theory for compact groups, Quantum groups

The treatment of these topics will be self-contained and only the basic knowledge in complex analysis and function analysis will be assumed. In the tutorial session, emphasis will be given on problem solving. The audience will be introduced to some future research directions in operator theory.
