C*-modules and operator spaces

(p.296) 8 C*-modules and operator spaces
Operator Algebras and Their Modules

David P. Blecher

Oxford University Press

This chapter has three main goals. First, to examine Hilbert C*-modules (and their W*-algebra variant, W *-modules) as operator modules. It aims to show that the theory of C *-modules fits comfortably into the operator module framework. Second, to consider space X. In particular, it will discuss the noncommutative Shilov boundary ☐(X) of X. TRO methods and this Shilov boundary provide important insights into the structure of X. Third, to illustrate how C*-module and TRO methods can lead to interesting results about operator spaces. Notes and historical remarks are presented at the end of the chapter.

Keywords:   Hilbert C*-modules, noncommutative Shilov boundary, W*-modules, C*-module maps, operator space multipliers, operator modules
