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.

As shape analysis is intricately related to Lebesgue integration and absolute continuity, it is advantageous to have a good grasp of the two notions. We review basic concepts and results about Lebesgue integration and absolute continuity.
