**Operator Algebras and Quantum Statistical Mechanics**

by Ola Bratteli, Derek W. Robinson

**Publisher**: Springer 2003**ISBN/ASIN**: 3540170936**ISBN-13**: 9783540170938**Number of pages**: 505

**Description**:

These two volumes present the theory of operator algebras with applications to quantum statistical mechanics. The authors' approach to the operator theory is to a large extent governed by the dictates of the physical applications. The book is self-contained and most proofs are presented in detail, which makes it a useful text for students with a knowledge of basic functional analysis.
