An Invitation to von Neumann Algebras by V.S. Sunder

By V.S. Sunder

Why This publication: the idea of von Neumann algebras has been growing to be in leaps and limits within the final two decades. It has constantly had robust connections with ergodic conception and mathematical physics. it really is now commencing to make touch with different parts comparable to differential geometry and K-Theory. There appears to be like a robust case for placing jointly a ebook which (a) introduces a reader to a couple of the fundamental idea had to delight in the new advances, with out getting slowed down via an excessive amount of technical element; (b) makes minimum assumptions at the reader's heritage; and (c) is sufficiently small in measurement not to try out the stamina and endurance of the reader. This ebook attempts to fulfill those standards. at least, it's only what its identify declares it to be -- a call for participation to the interesting global of von Neumann algebras. it's was hoping that when perusing this ebook, the reader should be tempted to fill within the various (and technically, capacious) gaps during this exposition, and to delve extra into the depths of the idea. For the professional, it suffices to say right here that when a few preliminaries, the e-book commences with the Murray - von Neumann type of things, proceeds throughout the simple modular concept to the III). category of Connes, and concludes with a dialogue of crossed-products, Krieger's ratio set, examples of things, and Takesaki's duality theorem.
