Von Neumann Algebras

Number of pages: 159
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.

This manuscript provides a brief introduction to Real and (linear and nonlinear) Functional Analysis. It covers basic Hilbert and Banach space theory as well as basic measure theory including Lebesgue spaces and the Fourier transform.

These notes form an introductory account of C*-algebras. Some results on more general commutative Banach algebras, whose proofs require little extra effort, are included. There are accounts of two applications of the commutative theory ...

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.
