By Gerald B. Folland

A direction in summary Harmonic Analysis is an creation to that a part of research on in the neighborhood compact teams that may be performed with minimum assumptions at the nature of the crowd. As a generalization of classical Fourier research, this summary idea creates a beginning for loads of glossy research, and it incorporates a variety of based effects and methods which are of curiosity of their personal correct.

This booklet develops the summary concept in addition to a well-chosen collection of concrete examples that exemplify the consequences and convey the breadth in their applicability. After a initial bankruptcy containing the required heritage fabric on Banach algebras and spectral conception, the textual content units out the final idea of in the neighborhood compact teams and their unitary representations, by way of a improvement of the extra particular thought of study on Abelian teams and compact teams. there's an in depth bankruptcy at the idea of brought on representations and its purposes, and the ebook concludes with a extra casual exposition at the concept of representations of non-Abelian, non-compact groups.

Featuring huge updates and new examples, the Second Edition:

  • Adds a quick part on von Neumann algebras
  • Includes Mark Kac’s easy evidence of a limited type of Wiener’s theorem
  • Explains the relation among SU(2) and SO(3) by way of quaternions, a sublime approach that brings SO(4) into the image with little effort
  • Discusses representations of the discrete Heisenberg staff and its crucial quotients, illustrating the Mackey laptop for normal semi-direct items and the pathological phenomena for nonregular ones

A path in summary Harmonic research, moment variation serves as an entrée to complex arithmetic, offering the necessities of harmonic research on in the community compact teams in a concise and available form.

57, it follows that the von Neumann algebra A′′ is isometrically ∗-isomorphic to the algebra L∞ (Σ, P ). ) This much carries over to the inseparable case: every commutative von Neumann algebra is isometrically ∗-isomorphic to an L∞ space. 7]. 57 is a von Neumann algebra to begin with. e. with a continuous function! Since the support of P is all of Σ, it follows that the topology on Σ is extremely strong and, if not actually discrete, quite bizarre. The reader might enjoy exploring the pathologies of the case A = L∞ ([0, 1]), acting on L2 ([0, 1]) (with Lebesgue measure) in the obvious way.

These two conditions are simultaneously satisfied only when T is a scalar multiple of the identity on HJ . This situation can be neatly described in the language of tensor products. 18). The algebra L(H)J then becomes L(H) ⊗ I = {T ⊗ I : T ∈ L(H)}, and its commutant becomes I ⊗ L(l2 (J)) = {I ⊗ S : S ∈ L(l2 (J))} since linear operators on l2 (J) can be identified with matrices [tij ] with scalar entries. 11. Factors are classified as type I, II, or III depending on the structure of their lattice of orthogonal projections.

It is an easy exercise to check that A/M is in fact a Banach algebra. It has no nontrivial ideals, for if I ⊂ A/M is an ideal then π −1 (I) is an ideal in A such that M ⊂ π −1 (I) ⊂ A; hence π −1 (I) = M or A and I = {0} or A/M. But then every nonzero element of A/M is invertible, for otherwise the ideal it generates would be nontrivial. By the Gelfand-Mazur theorem, A/M is isomorphic to C, and if we denote the isomorphism by φ then φ ◦ π is a multiplicative functional on A whose kernel is M.
