Some Applications of the Perturbation Determinant in Finite von Neumann Algebras
In the finite von Neumann algebra setting, we introduce the concept of a perturbation determinant associated with a pair of self-adjoint elements $H_0$ and $H$ in the algebra and relate it to the concept of the de la Harpe--Skandalis homotopy invariant determinant associated with piecewise $C^1$-paths of operators joining $H_0$ and $H$. We obtain an analog of Krein's formula that relates the perturbation determinant and the spectral shift function and, based on this relation, we derive subsequently (i) the Birman--Solomyak formula for a general non-linear perturbation, (ii) a universality of a spectral averaging, and (iii) a generalization of the Dixmier--Fuglede--Kadison differentiation formula.

Similarity Classification of Cowen-Douglas Operators
Let $\cal H$ be a complex separable Hilbert space and ${\cal L}({\cal H})$ denote the collection of bounded linear operators on ${\cal H}$. An operator $A$ in ${\cal L}({\cal H})$ is said to be strongly irreducible, if ${\cal A}^{\prime}(T)$, the commutant of $A$, has no non-trivial idempotent. An operator $A$ in ${\cal L}({\cal H})$ is said to a Cowen-Douglas operator, if there exists $\Omega$, a connected open subset of $C$, and $n$, a positive integer, such that (a) ${\Omega}{\subset}{\sigma}(A)=\{z{\in}C; A-z {\text {not invertible}}\};$ (b) $\ran(A-z)={\cal H}$, for $z$ in $\Omega$; (c) $\bigvee_{z{\in}{\Omega}}$\ker$(A-z)={\cal H}$ and (d) $\dim \ker(A-z)=n$ for $z$ in $\Omega$. In the paper, we give a similarity classification of strongly irreducible Cowen-Douglas operators by using the $K_0$-group of the commutant algebra as an invariant.
