The speculation and purposes of C*-algebras are concerning fields starting from operator conception, team representations and quantum mechanics, to non-commutative geometry and dynamical platforms. through Gelfand transformation, the idea of C*-algebras can be considered as non-commutative topology. a couple of decade in the past, George A. Elliott initiated this system of category of C*-algebras (up to isomorphism) through their K-theoretical info. It all started with the category of AT-algebras with actual rank 0. due to the fact then nice efforts were made to categorise amenable C*-algebras, a category of C*-algebras that arises such a lot obviously. for instance, a wide type of straightforward amenable C*-algebras is found to be classifiable. the appliance of those effects to dynamical structures has been verified.

This ebook introduces the new improvement of the speculation of the class of amenable C*-algebras ? the 1st such try. the 1st 3 chapters current the fundamentals of the speculation of C*-algebras that are really vital to the speculation of the category of amenable C*-algebras. bankruptcy four otters the type of the so-called AT-algebras of actual rank 0. the 1st 4 chapters are self-contained, and will function a textual content for a graduate path on C*-algebras. The final chapters include extra complicated fabric. particularly, they care for the class theorem for easy AH-algebras with actual rank 0, the paintings of Elliott and Gong. The ebook includes many new proofs and a few unique effects concerning the class of amenable C*-algebras. along with being as an creation to the speculation of the type of amenable C*-algebras, it's a complete reference for these extra acquainted with the topic.

Example text

5 Every C*-algebra A admits an approximate identity. Indeed, if A is the upwards-directed set of all a G A+ with \\a\\ < 1 and e\ = A for all A G A, £/ien {e\)\e^ forms an approximate identity for A. Proof. 3 {e\} is an increasing net in the closed unit ball of A. We need to show that lim^ ae\ = a for all a £ A. Since A spans A, it suffices to assume that a G A+. Since {||a(l — eA)a||} is decreasing, it suffices to show that there are un G {e\} such that ||a(l — u„)a|| —¥ 0 (as n -> oo). Note that un = (1 - ^)fi(a) G A.

We define a norm on Mn(B(H)) making it a C*-algebra by setting ||o|| = ||0(a)||. 8) k,l=l For each i < n let Pi be the projection of H^1 onto the ith copy of H. Each element x G B(H^) has a representation (ciij)i(a) = Sfc=i( a (^)»%) for some£i,-~,tn,Vi,--,Vn G H and for all a e B(H); (ii) 4> is weakly continuous; (iii) is strongly continuous. Proof. It is obvious that (i) =>• (ii) => (iii).

15, it is a C*-isomorphism. 1 A linear map 4> : A —»• B between C*-algebras is said to be self-adjoint if (Asa) C Bsa, and positive if (A+) C B+. It follows that if <> / is positive then is self-adjoint. Every homomorphism h : A —> B is positive. If B = C, then a positive linear map : A -4 C is called a positive linear functional. If, in addition, is bounded and \\\\ = 1, then is calle a state on A. If is a linear functional, we write > 0 if it is positive. 26 The Basics of C*-algebras A positive linear functional r : A —> C is called a £race if 4>{u*au) = (a) for all a G A and all unitaries u £ A.
