Title: Bures-Wasserstein isometries of positive definite cones in $C^*$-algebras
Abstract of Talk
In this talk we define the Bures-Wasserstein metric on the positive cone of a $C^*$-algebra with a faithful trace and determine the precise structure of the corresponding isometries. Our main tool is the use of a former result of ours concerning Thompson isometries.
