**Von Neumann Algebras**

by Vaughan F. R. Jones

**Publisher**: UC Berkeley Mathematics 2010**Number of pages**: 159

**Description**:

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, and we prefer to make simplifying assumptions rather than go for the most general case. Thus we do not hesitate to give several proofs of a single result, or repeat an argument with different hypotheses.
