Abstract:

In this talk we present some results related to the recent solution of the Kadison-Singer problem by Marcus, Spielman, and Srivastava. We sharpen the constant in the $KS_2$ conjecture of Weaver that plays a key role in this solution. We then apply this result to prove optimal asymptotic bounds on the size of partitions in the Feichtinger conjecture. The talk is based on a joint work with Casazza, Marcus, and Speegle.
