The "Borel measurable functionals on measure algebras" workshop will be hosted at The Banff International Research Station.

We are concerned with algebras of functions on a group and of measures on those groups. For example, we include study of the functions on the real line which have a Fourier transform; these functions form an algebra.rnrnWe have written two memoirs on these topics, but many basic questions remainopen, and we continue to explore them.

The Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS) is a collaborative Canada-US-Mexico venture that provides an environment for creative interaction as well as the exchange of ideas, knowledge, and methods within the Mathematical Sciences, with related disciplines and with industry. The research station is located at The Banff Centre in Alberta and is supported by Canada's Natural Science and Engineering Research Council (NSERC), the US National Science Foundation (NSF), Alberta's Advanced Education and Technology, and Mexico's Consejo Nacional de Ciencia y Tecnologia (CONACYT).
