**C*-algebras**

by John Erdos

**Publisher**: King's College, London 2003**Number of pages**: 51

**Description**:

These notes form an introductory account of C*-algebras. Some results on more general commutative Banach algebras, whose proofs require little extra effort, are included. There are accounts of two applications of the commutative theory: the C*-algebra approach to the spectral theorem for bounded normal operators on Hilbert space and a brief introduction to the ideas of abstract harmonic analysis.
