Seaver House: Built in 1900 by Pomona Valley pioneers Carlton and Estella Seaver, this house stood on the corner of Holt and Garey Avenues in the city of Pomona, California. There the Seavers raised six children, all of whom graduated from Pomona College: Georgia '04, Frank Roger '05, Byron Dick '08, Homer Carlton '11, Marguerite '14, and Nila '19.

Abstract:

Let be a locally compact space. Then is the Banach algebra of all continuous,

complex-valued functions on that vanish at infinity, taken with the pointwise algebraic

operations and uniform norm . The maximal modular ideals of have the

form , where . We see that each of these maximal

ideals has a contractive approximate identity: this is a net in

with and for each .

Now suppose that is a Banach function algebra on such that each maximal modular

ideal has such a contractive approximate identity. Must we have ? Or can you

think of such an algebra with ? How close does the group algebra of

a locally compact group come to having the above properties?

This is joint work with Ali Ülger of Istanbul
