Von Neumann Algebras by Vaughan F.R. Jones

By Vaughan F.R. Jones

The aim of those notes is to supply a swift advent to von Neumann
algebras which will get to the examples and energetic issues with at the very least
technical luggage. during this feel it's contrary in spirit from the treatises of
Dixmier [], Takesaki[], Pedersen[], Kadison-Ringrose[], Stratila-Zsido[]. The
philosophy is to lavish recognition on a couple of key effects and examples, and we
prefer to make simplifying assumptions instead of opt for the main basic
case. hence we don't hesitate to offer a number of proofs of a unmarried end result, or repeat
an argument with varied hypotheses. The notes are outfitted round semester-
long classes given at UC Berkeley notwithstanding they include extra fabric than
could learn in one semester.

The notes are casual and the workouts are an essential component of the ex-
position. those workouts are important and quite often meant to be effortless.
