Title: Spin model subfactors
Abstract: Complex Hadamard matrices generate a class of irreducible hyperfinite subfactors with integer Jones index coming from spin model commuting squares. I will prove a theorem that establishes a criterion implying that these subfactors have infinite depth. I then show that Paley type II and Petrescu's continuous family of Hadamard matrices yield infinite depth subfactors. Furthermore, infinite depth subfactors are a generic feature of continuous families of complex Hadamard matrices. In this talk I will present an outline for the proof of these results.
