Operator Algebras and Their Modules: An operator space approach

David P. Blecher and Christian Le Merdy


This book presents the general theory of algebras of operators on a Hilbert space, and the modules over such algebras. The new theory of operator spaces is presented early on and the text assembles the basic concepts, theory, and methodologies. A major trend in modern mathematics, inspired largely by physics, is toward ‘noncommutative’ or ‘quantized’ phenomena. In functional analysis, this has appeared notably under the name of ‘operator spaces’, which is a variant of Banach spaces which is particularly appropriate for solving problems concerning spaces or algebras of operators on Hilbert spac ...

Keywords: Hilbert space, operator spaces, Banach spaces, operator algebras, selfadjoint algebras, nonselfadjoint operator algebras, noncommutative phenomena, von Neumann algebra, abstract function theory
