A characterization of von Neumann algebras

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


In this paper a new type of *-algebras is introduced and investigated in detail to obtain a new characterization of von Neumann algebras. The main theorem (Theorem 5) supplies a characterization of the *-algebras *-isomorphic to von Neumann algebras, not assuming any previously given analytic property. This work fits to the bundle of research performed by outstanding mathematicians devoted to similar characterization problems (see [5], [6], [8], [16]).
