C*-Algebras and Operator Theory book cover

C*-Algebras and Operator Theory

This book constitutes a first- or second-year graduate course in operator theory. It is a field that has great importance for other areas of mathematics and physics, such as algebraic topology, differential geometry, and quantum mechanics. It assumes a basic knowledge in functional analysis but no prior acquaintance with operator theory is required.

First- and second-year graduate students.
