The Kadison-Singer problem in mathematics and engineering.

Author information

Department of Mathematics, University of Missouri, Columbia, MO 65211, USA.


We will see that the famous intractible 1959 Kadison-Singer Problem in C*-algebras is equivalent to fundamental open problems in a dozen different areas of research in mathematics and engineering. This work gives all these areas common ground on which to interact as well as explaining why each area has volumes of literature on their respective problems without a satisfactory resolution.
