The theme of this talk will be approximate representations. We will give one motivating example from quantum information theory (the Blum-Luby-Rubinfeld test) that demonstrates how approximate representations have applications in self-testing of quantum devices. We will then show how this generalizes to similar results for amenable groups and a possible extension to finite quantum groups.

Our C*-Seminar will again be on Wednesdays from 1:30-2:45 pm (Arizona time, no daylight savings), meeting both in person (WXLR A307) and via zoom.

Also new: it's now the ASUERAU C*-Seminar (so, joint with our friends Lara and Mitch at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University up the road in Prescott).

(Please email the organizer John Quigg quigg@asu.edu to be put on the email list if you would like to receive the link to the zoom seminar.)
