**Von Neumann Algebras**

by Vaughan F. R. Jones

**Publisher**: UC Berkeley Mathematics 2010**Number of pages**: 159

**Description**:

The purpose of these notes is to provide a rapid introduction to von Neumann algebras which gets to the examples and active topics with a minimum of technical baggage. The philosophy is to lavish attention on a few key results and examples, and we prefer to make simplifying assumptions rather than go for the most general case. Thus we do not hesitate to give several proofs of a single result, or repeat an argument with different hypotheses.

**Banach Spaces of Analytic Functions**

by

**enneth Hoffman**-

**Prentice-Hall**

A classic of pure mathematics, this advanced text explores the intersection of functional analysis and analytic function theory. Close in spirit to abstract harmonic analysis, it is confined to Banach spaces of analytic functions in the unit disc.
