A commutative Banach algebra is a Banach algebra A with the property that ab = ba for all a, b ∈ A Examples and are of commutative. Banach. Of course, if A is a normed algebra, then the norm induces a metric on A which Similarly weak star topology on A∗ is generated by the sets. *-SJbalgebra A of B (H) which is closed in tIE nonn tOIDlogy is a C*-algebra. E.g.: . A C*-algebra A is unital if A has a unit 1 A i otherwise, A is nonunital. I.

In the language of K-theorythis vector is the positive cone of the K 0 group of A.


Segal in to describe norm-closed subalgebras of B Hnamely, the space of bounded operators on some Hilbert space H.

This characterization is one of the cstad for the noncommutative topology and noncommutative geometry programs. Though K H does not have an algebrz element, a sequential approximate identity for K H can be developed. They are required to be closed in the weak operator topologywhich is weaker than the norm topology.


In fact it is sufficient to consider only factor representations, i. More generally, one can consider finite direct sums of matrix algebras.

The involution is pointwise conjugation. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

The involution is given by the conjugate transpose. Such functions exist by the Tietze extension theorem which applies to locally compact Hausdorff spaces. K H is a two-sided closed ideal of B H. Volume 2, Number 5, p.
