Trace Formulas and Finite Dimensional Approximations
No Thumbnail Available
The dissertation gives a new proof of some existing second-order trace formulas, namely the Koplienko-Neidhardt trace formula for pair of unitaries in the multiplicative path, the Koplienko-Neidhardt trace formula for pair of contractions via linear path with one of them being normal. Our proofs are based on the idea of the finite-dimensional approximation method introduced by Voiculescu. As a consequence of our results and the Schaffer matrix unitary dilation, we obtained second-order trace formula for a class of pairs of contractions via linear path. Using a different setup of finite dimensional approximations, we extend the Koplienko-Neidhardt trace formula for a class of pairs of contractions via multiplicative path.
