**Description**:

This book serves as an introduction to Jordan algebras of operators on Hilbert spaces and their abstract counterparts. It aims to develop the theory of Jordan operator algebras to a point from which most of the theory of C*- and von Neumann algebras can be generalized to Jordan algebras in a natural way.
