I have been keeping "project updates" since Summer 2016. Here is the latest project update, which is getting closer to a draft of the dissertation, tentatively titled Two new settings for examples of von Neumann dimension. If you have seen me give a talk during or after Summer 2017, I was talking about Theorem 15 (proved in Section 1.8) and Theorem 26 (proved in Section 2.6). There is a lot of other material in that document which may or may not make it into the final dissertation.

Here are the 1-page project summary and 5-page project description that I submitted as part of my application for a National Science Foundation Mathematical Sciences Postdoctoral Research Fellowship on Oct. 18, 2017.
