 Title: Connections between geometrical and fixed point properties
 Location: Room V129, Mathematics Building (Callaghan Campus) The University of Newcastle
 Time and Date: 4:00 pm, Thu, 7^{th} Oct 2010
 Abstract:
In the area of Metric Fixed Point Theory, one of the outstanding question was if the fixed point property implied reflexivity. This question was answered in the negative in 2008 by P.K.Lin, when he showed that certain renorm in the space of absolutely sumable sequences, had the fixed point property. In this talk we will show a general way to renorm certain spaces in order to have the fixed point property. We also give general properties for a given Banach space to enjoy the f.p.p. And we will also show equivalences of geometrical properties to certain fixed point properties.
