Von Neumann Algebras

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.

This manuscript provides a brief introduction to nonlinear functional analysis. As an application we consider partial differential equations and prove existence and uniqueness for solutions of the stationary Navier-Stokes equation.
