Operator Algebras and Quantum Statistical Mechanics
by Ola Bratteli, Derek W. Robinson
Publisher: Springer 2003
Number of pages: 505
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.

The purpose of these notes is to provide a rapid introduction to von Neumann algebras which gets to the examples and active topics with a minimum of technical baggage. The philosophy is to lavish attention on a few key results and examples.

Fredholm operators are one of the most important classes of linear operators in mathematics. The aim of these notes is an essentially self-contained introduction to the spectral flow for paths of (generally unbounded) selfadjoint Fredholm operators.
