C*-Algebras and Their Automorphism Groups, Second Edition, is an updated edition of Gert Kjærgård Pedersen's 1979 classic. This edition reflects the wealth of novel results revealed over the past forty years. Revered for its writing clarity and elegant presentation of operator algebras, Pedersen's monograph is notable for reviewing partially ordered vector spaces and group automorphisms in unusual detail, diminishing von Neumann algebras as an ancillary to C*-algebrae. Edited by Søren Eilers, this edition modernizes Pedersen's work
This elegantly edited landmark edition of Gert Kjærgård Pedersen’s C*-Algebras and their Automorphism Groups (1979) carefully and sensitively extends the classic work to reflect the wealth of relevant novel results revealed over the past forty years. Revered from publication for its writing clarity and extremely elegant presentation of a vast space within operator algebras, Pedersen’s monograph is notable for reviewing partially ordered vector spaces and group automorphisms in unusual detail, and by strict intention releasing the
This book describes the recent development in the structure theory of von Neumann algebras and their automorphism groups. It can be viewed as a guided tour to the state of the art.
Together with Theory of Operator Algebras I and III, this book presents the theory of von Neumann algebras and non-commutative integration focusing on the group of automorphisms and the structure analysis. From the reviews: "These books can be warmly recommended to every graduate student who wants to become acquainted with this exciting branch of mathematics. Furthermore, they should be on the bookshelf of every researcher of the area." --ACTA SCIENTIARUM MATHEMATICARUM
The deep and relatively new field of vertex operator algebras is intimately related to a variety of areas in mathematics and physics: for example, the concepts of "monstrous moonshine," infinite-dimensional Lie theory, string theory, and conformal field theory. This book introduces the reader to the fundamental theory of vertex operator algebras and its basic techniques and examples. Beginning with a detailed presentation of the theoretical foundations and proceeding to a range of applications, the text includes a number of new,
Over the past 30 years, exciting developments in diverse areas of the theory of Lie algebras and their representations have been observed. The symposium covered topics such as Lie algebras and combinatorics, crystal bases for quantum groups, quantum groups and solvable lattice models, and modular and infinite-dimensional Lie algebras. In this volume, readers will find several excellent expository articles and research papers containing many significant new results in this area.
This volume contains the proceedings of the Third International Conference on Non-Associative Algebra and Its Applications, held in Oviedo, Spain, July 12--17, 1993. The conference brought together specialists from all over the world who work in this interesting and active field, which is currently enjoying much attention. All aspects of non-associative algebra are covered. Topics range from purely mathematical subjects to a wide spectrum of applications, and from state-of-the-art articles to overview papers. This collection will point the way for further
This volume is based on the proceedings of the Hopf-Algebras and Quantum Groups conference at the Free University of Brussels, Belgium. It presents state-of-the-art papers - selected from over 65 participants representing nearly 20 countries and more than 45 lectures - on the theory of Hopf algebras, including multiplier Hopf algebras and quantum g
The aim of the series is to present new and important developments in pure and applied mathematics. Well established in the community over two decades, it offers a large library of mathematics including several important classics. The volumes supply thorough and detailed expositions of the methods and ideas essential to the topics in question. In addition, they convey their relationships to other parts of mathematics. The series is addressed to advanced readers wishing to thoroughly study the topic. Editorial Board
C*-approximation theory has provided the foundation for many of the most important conceptual breakthroughs and applications of operator algebras. This book systematically studies (most of) the numerous types of approximation properties that have been important in recent years: nuclearity, exactness, quasidiagonality, local reflexivity, and others. Moreover, it contains user-friendly proofs, insofar as that is possible, of many fundamental results that were previously quite hard to extract from the literature. Indeed, perhaps the most important novelty of the first ten
