​This e-book is a historical past of advanced functionality thought from its origins to 1914, while the basic gains of the fashionable idea have been in position. it's the first heritage of arithmetic dedicated to advanced functionality concept, and it attracts on quite a lot of released and unpublished assets. as well as an intensive and special insurance of the 3 founders of the topic – Cauchy, Riemann, and Weierstrass – it seems on the contributions of authors from d’Alembert to Hilbert, and Laplace to Weyl.

This factorization is obviously an involutive algebra homomorphism. 20), -1 it may be extended continuously to the completion of E~ q (0). By continuity, this extention is an involutive algebra homomorphism. 20. 23 I Let E be a finite-dimensional symmetric, involutive, semi-simple, complex Gelfand algebra and u the Gelfand transform on E . 14, u is injective. 21. 4). Given x E E , define 5"E >E , y~ ) xyx*. Then ~ = 5" E ~ for every x E U, the map U ~, x: ;5 is a continuous group homomorphism, and EC= {x E E ] ~ = identity map} = {x E U I ~ = identity map}.

In particular, a Gelfand C*-algebra E is unital iff a ( E ) is compact. Let E be a Gelfand C*-algebra. 16 b), r(x) = I1~11 for every x C E . 13, the Gelfand transform of E is an isometry of C*-algebras. m Remark. H. Stone proved (1940) the above result for Gelfand C*-subalgebras of the C*-algebra of operators on a given Hilbert space. 6 Let E be a (unital) C*-algebra and F a (unital) Gelfand C*-subalgebra of E . Then the following are equivalent: a) F is separable. b) There is an x E S n E such that F = E(x) (F = E(x, 1)).

Step 1 i ~ a(x) Assume that i E a ( x ) . 1). We deduce that 2~ + 1 <__ I1~= I, which is a contradiction. 1 The General Theory 17 Take a, 3 C lR with a + i3 C a ( x ) . Assume that ~ # 0. 4 b)) which contradicts Step 1. Hence Z = 0 and a(x) C JR. 16 ( 0 ) Let x be a self-normal element of a C*-algebra. e b) r ( x ) = Ilxll. c) (x quasinilpotent) r ( a ( x ) = {0}) v:~ (x = 0). 2 b). 15). 4, r(x) = lim Ilxnll ! 21 d), (x = 0 ) ~ (x q u a s i n i l p o t e n t ) ==~ (a(x)= {0}) (~(x) = O) ~ (llxll = 0) ~ (x = 0).
