C*-Algebras and their Automorphism Groups, Second Edition is an updated edition of Gert Kjærgård Pedersen’s 1979 classic. This edition reflects the wealth of novel results revealed over the past forty years. Revered for its writing clarity and elegant presentation of operator algebras, Pedersen’s monograph is notable for reviewing partially ordered vector spaces and group automorphisms in unusual detail, diminishing von Neumann algebras as an ancillary to C*-algebrae. Edited by Søren Eilers, this edition modernizes Pedersen’s work for a new generation of C*-algebraists, including new commentary and indexes, annotation and terminology appendices, and new applications, including the K-theory toolbox.
