Home» MAA Publications» MAA Reviews» Operator Algebras: Theory of C*-Algebras and von Neumann Algebras Operator Algebras: Theory of C* . This chapter focuses on KdV-type equations and W-algebras. There exists a remarkable connection between the conformal field theory and the theory of KdV-type equations. The symmetry generators in conformal field theory form an associative infinite-dimensional algebra which always contains the Virasoro algebra as a subalgebra.

This book focuses on recent developments in the theory of vertex algebras, with particular emphasis on affine vertex algebras, affine W-algebras, and W-algebras appearing in physical theories such as logarithmic conformal field theory. He is the author of more than 50 peer-reviewed research publications on the representation theory of. In the book of Haag [Local Quantum Physics (Springer Verlag, Berlin, )] about local quantum field theory the main results are obtained by the older methods of C * - and W *-algebra theory.A great advance, especially in the theory of W *-algebras, is due to Tomita’s discovery of the theory of modular Hilbert algebras [Quasi-standard von Neumann algebras, Cited by:

W-symmetry is an extension of conformal symmetry in two dimensions. Since its introduction in , W-symmetry has become one of the central notions in the study of two-dimensional conformal field theory. The mathematical structures that underlie W-symmetry are so-called W-algebras, which are higher-spin extensions of the Virasoro algebra. This book contains a 5/5(1). In this book we describe the elementary theory of operator algebras and parts of the advanced theory which are of relevance, or potentially of relevance, to mathematical physics. Subsequently we describe various applications to quantum statistical mechanics. At Price: $

In conformal field theory and representation theory, a W-algebra is an algebra that generalizes the Virasoro algebra.W-algebras were introduced by Alexander Zamolodchikov (Zamolodchikov ()), and the name "W-algebra" comes from the fact that Zamolodchikov used the letter W for one of the elements of one of his examples.

This book, featuring stimulating research papers, focuses on recent developments in the theory of vertex algebras, with particular emphasis on affine vertex algebras, affine W-algebras, and W-algebras appearing in physical theories such as logarithmic conformal field theory.

Primary examples of A W*-algebras are von Neumann algebras, those C*-subalgebras of the. algebra B (H) of operators on a Hilb ert space H. In mathematics, a von Neumann algebra or W*-algebra is a *-algebra of bounded operators on a Hilbert space that is closed in the weak operator topology and contains the identity is a special type of C*-algebra.

Von Neumann algebras were originally introduced by John von Neumann, motivated by his study of single operators, group representations, ergodic theory. In recent times, a more general theory, namely that of locally C * -algebras ([7]) and of locally W * -algebras ([3], [9]), is developed.
