Title: Dilation on the symmetrized bidisc
Abstract of Talk
A contraction operator can be dilated to a unitary operator, that is, for an operator $T$ with norm less than or equal to 1 can be realized as a part of a unitary operator. We shall show that an analogous result can be obtained if we consider a pair of commuting operators for which the symmetrized bidisc is a spectral set. This is a joint work with T. Bhattacharyya and S. Shyam Roy.
