The Fifteenth Workshop on
Numerical Ranges and Numerical Radii

 at Toyo University, Kawagoe Campus
June 21-24, 2019.


This is one of the couple of the special workshops for the celebrated Toeplitz-Hausdorff Theorem. The year 2018 was the 100 anniversary of the celebrated Toeplitz-Hausdorff Theorem asserting the numerical range of an operator is always convex. There has been a lot of research activities on the topic after this fundamental result was established. The high level of research activities are due to the many connections of the subject to different pure and applied areas. The purpose of the workshop is to stimulate research and foster interaction of researchers interested in the subject. The informal workshop atmosphere will facilitate the exchange of ideas from different research areas and, hopefully, the participants will leave informed of the latest developments and newest ideas. One may visit the website WONRA to see some background about the subject and previous meetings, and also the Wiki page for the history of the workshop and related meetings on the subject. Furthermore, to celebrate the 100 anniversary of the Toplitz-Hausdorff Theorem. Another special workshop was held in Germany in summer of 2018, and the 2020 workshop following the usual schedule will take place in Coimbra in the summer of 2020.
