Lie groups were introduced in 1870 by the Norwegian mathematician Sophus Lie. A century later Jean Dieudonnâe quipped that Lie groups had moved to the center of mathematics and that one cannot undertake anything without them.

A *pro-Lie group* is a complete topological group *G* in which every identity neighborhood *U* of *G* contains a normal subgroup *N* such that the quotient *G/N* is a Lie group. Every locally compact connected topological group and every compact group is a pro-Lie group. While the class of locally compact groups is not closed under the formation of arbitrary products, the class of pro-Lie groups is.

For half a century, locally compact pro-Lie groups have drifted through the literature, yet this is the first book which systematically treats the Lie theory and the structure theory of pro-Lie groups irrespective of local compactness. So it fits very well into that current trend which addresses infinite dimensional Lie groups. The results of this text are based on a theory of pro-Lie algebras which parallels the structure theory of finite dimensional real Lie algebras to an astonishing degree even though it has to overcome technical obstacles.

A topological group is said to be almost connected if the quotient group of its connected components is compact. This book exposes a Lie theory of almost connected pro-Lie groups (and hence of almost connected locally compact groups) and illuminates the variety of ways in which their structure theory reduces to that of compact groups on the one hand and of finite dimensional Lie groups on the other. It is therefore a continuation of the authors' monograph on the structure of compact groups (1998, 2006, 2014, 2020, 2023) and is an invaluable tool for researchers in topological groups, Lie theory, harmonic analysis and representation theory. It is written to be accessible to advanced graduate students wishing to study this fascinating and important area of research, which has so many fruitful interactions with other fields of mathematics.

His formal derivation relied on two implicit assumptions: (i) there is a scale separation between the size of the particles and the observation scale; and (ii) at first order, dilute particles do not interact with one another. In mathematical terms, the first assumption amounts to the validity of a homogenization result defining the effective viscosity tensor, which is now well understood. Next, the second assumption allowed Einstein to approximate this effective viscosity at low density by considering particles as being isolated. The rigorous justification is, in fact, quite subtle as the effective viscosity is a nonlinear nonlocal function of the ensemble of particles and as hydrodynamic interactions have borderline integrability.

In the present memoir, we establish Einstein's effective viscosity formula in the most general setting. In addition, we pursue the low-density expansion to arbitrary order in form of a cluster expansion, where the summation of hydrodynamic interactions crucially requires suitable renormalizations. In particular, we justify a celebrated result by Batchelor and Green on the second-order correction and we explicitly describe all higher-order renormalizations for the first time. In some specific settings, we further address the summability of the whole cluster expansion. Our approach relies on a combination of combinatorial arguments, variational analysis, elliptic regularity, probability theory, and diagrammatic integration methods.

This paper is motivated by the problem of establishing the range of validity of the UCT, and in particular, whether the UCT holds for all nuclear *-algebras. We introduce the idea of a *-algebra that "decomposes" over a class of *-algebras. Roughly, this means that locally there are approximately central elements that approximately cut the *-algebra into two *-subalgebras from that have well-behaved intersection. We show that if a *-algebra decomposes over the class of nuclear, UCT *-algebras, then it satisfies the UCT. The argument is based on a Mayer-Vietoris principle in the framework of controlled KK-theory; the latter was introduced by the authors in an earlier work. Nuclearity is used via Kasparov's Hilbert module version of Voiculescu's theorem, and Haagerup's theorem that nuclear *-algebras are amenable. We say that a *-algebra has finite complexity if it is in the smallest class of *-algebras containing the finite-dimensional *-algebras, and closed under decomposability; our main result implies that all *-algebras in this class satisfy the UCT. The class of *-algebras with finite complexity is large, and comes with an ordinal-number invariant measuring the complexity level. We conjecture that a *-algebra of finite nuclear dimension and real rank zero has finite complexity; this (and several other related conjectures) would imply the UCT for all separable nuclear *-algebras. We also give new local formulations of the UCT, and some other necessary and sufficient conditions for the UCT to hold for all nuclear *-algebras.07aMathematics2bicssc07aKasparov theory (\(KK\)-theory)2msc07aExt and \(K\)-homology2msc07aGeneral theory of \(C^*\)-algebras2msc07a\(K\)-theory and operator algebras (including cyclic theory)2msc07aNoncommutative topology2msc1 aYu4aut40uhttps://ems.press/doi/10.4171/mems/8423cover imageuhttps://content.ems.press/assets/public/images/books/cover-280.png03335nam 22005655a 450000100150000000300080001500500110002300600190003400700150005300800410006802000180010902400240012704000120015107200150016308400150017808400150019308400150020808400150022308400150023808400150025308400150026808400150028308400150029808400150031310000180032824500710034626000200041730000340043733600260047133700260049733800360052334700240055949000700058350600410065352012510069465000240194565000760196965000800204565000430212565000500216865000680221865000880228665000620237465000360243665000840247265000740255670000140263085600410264485600840268510.4171/mems/9DE-40842024-02-02a fot 00| 0|cr nn mmmmamaa240202e20240202gw fot 00| 0|eng d a97839854756747 a10.4171/mems/92doi aDE-4084 7aPB2bicssc a22E662msc a17B152msc a17B562msc a17B652msc a17B662msc a17B672msc a17B812msc a22E602msc a22E652msc a22E672msc1 aJanssens4aut10aPositive Energy Representations of Gauge Groups I ;bLocalization.3 aEMS Pressc2024 a1 online resource (156 pages) atextbtxt2rdacontent acomputerbc2rdamedia aonline resourcebcr2rdacarrier atext filebPDF2rda1 aMemoirs of the European Mathematical Society (mems)v9x2747-90990 aOpen Accessuhttps://ems.press/books aThis is the first in a series of papers on projective positive energy representations of gauge groups.
