C*-algebras by John Erdos

Small book cover: C*-algebras


Publisher: King's College, London
Number of pages: 51

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.
