Operator Algebras and Quantum Statistical Mechanics
by Ola Bratteli, Derek W. Robinson
Publisher: Springer 2003
Number of pages: 505
These two volumes present the theory of operator algebras with applications to quantum statistical mechanics. The authors' approach to the operator theory is to a large extent governed by the dictates of the physical applications. The book is self-contained and most proofs are presented in detail, which makes it a useful text for students with a knowledge of basic functional analysis.

These are notes for a King's College course to fourth year undergraduates and MSc students. They cover the theoretical development of operators on Hilbert space up to the spectral theorem for bounded selfadjoint operators.

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.

This book at the beginning graduate level will help students with primary interests elsewhere to acquire a facility with tools of a functional analytic flavor, say in harmonic analysis, numerical analysis, stochastic processes, or in physics.
