Description

Complex numbers play a crucial role throughout all of Mathematics, particularly in Analysis. I will discuss how this necessary set of numbers is replaced by operators when quantizing Analysis through Operator Theory. We will look at tensors and tensors products and then progress into Pisier's Operator Hilbert space to understand the transition.
