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: the C*-algebra approach to the spectral theorem for bounded normal operators on Hilbert space and a brief introduction to the ideas of abstract harmonic analysis.

In this book you will learn something about functional analytic framework of topology. And you will get an access to more advanced literature on non-commutative geometry, a quite recent topic in mathematics and mathematical physics.

Introduction to Jordan algebras of operators on Hilbert spaces and their abstract counterparts. It develops the theory of Jordan operator algebras to a point from which the theory of C*- and von Neumann algebras can be generalized to Jordan algebras.

A graduate-level introduction to C*-algebras, Hilbert C*-modules, vector bundles, and induced representations of groups and C*-algebras, with applications to quantization theory, phase space localization, and configuration space localization.
