Can a non-commutative C*-algebra be a minimal operator space?

By an operator space structure on a Banach space $X$ I mean a sequence of norms on spaces $M_n \otimes X$ that satisfies Ruan's axioms. Among such admissible sequences there is always the smallest ...

What is the significance of matrix ordered algebras?

I am trying to grok matrix ordered operator algebras, but I am having a hard time understanding their significance from the definition. Here is the definition (or at least, one way of stating it): ...

On complemented von Neumann algebras

Edit: according to Narutaka Ozawa, question 3) is still open in the type $\mathrm{II}_1$ case. In other terms, it is not known whether every topologically complemented type $\mathrm{II}_1$ factor in ...

Isometries between Hilbertian homogeneous finite dimensional operator spaces

We know that if $i:R_n\rightarrow C_n$ is an isometry then for any $n$-dimensional operator space E, there is a factorization $i=uv$ with $v:R_n\rightarrow E$, $u:E\rightarrow C_n$ such that ...

Containment of an element to an operator system

This question will probably appeal to people in operator systems theory as it is very much related. However, I'm interested in down-to-earth concrete systems with finite dimensional Hilbert space ...

Extensions of completely positive mappings

I would like to ask the following two questions. Let $1_{\mathcal{H}}\in \mathcal{A}\subset\mathcal{B}\subset\overline{\mathcal{A}}^{SOT}\subset\mathbb{B}(\mathcal{H})$ be a sequence of ...

Projections which are not completely bounded

There are 'canonical' examples of maps on operator spaces which are not completely bounded. Nevertheless, I couldn't produce any examples of bounded projections on relatively easy to understand ...

Decomposition of order-3 tensors over the complex numbers

This is a question about decomposition of order-3 tensors. The survey Tensor Decompositions and Applications give a good account of recent developments in this area. Let $T$ be an order-3 tensor, ...

Completely bounded maps on Mn

The aim of this question is to collect nice maps on $M_n(\mathbb{C})$ with the following property: $\phi_n:M_n(\mathbb{C})\rightarrow M_n(\mathbb{C})$ with $||\phi||=1$ and ...

When are certain group C*-algebras exact?

This is somewhere between a "reference request" and "ask an expert", but I hope it is not too trivial or off-topic. Anyway. There has been a lot of attention given to showing that for certain ...

Ordering of completely bounded maps

Let A be a C*-algebra, let H be a Hilbert space, and let $T:A\rightarrow B(H)$ be a completely bounded (cb) map (that is, the dilations to maps $M_n(A)\rightarrow M_n(B(H))$ are uniformly bounded). ...
