We give some new characterizations, of unitaries, isometries, unital operator spaces, unital function spaces, operator systems, C-algebras, and related objects. Several characterizations of theseâ€¦ (More)

To provide a baseline biological comparison to simulation study predictions about the frequency of rogue taxa effects, we evaluated the frequency of a rogue taxa effect using viral data sets whichâ€¦ (More)

Parallel to the study of finite dimensional Banach spaces, there is a growing interest in the corresponding local theory of operator spaces. We define a family of Hilbertian operator spaces H k n , 1â€¦ (More)

In recent work of the second author, a technical result was proved establishing a bijective correspondence between certain open projections in a C *-algebra containing an operator algebra A, andâ€¦ (More)

We first study positivity in C*-modules using tripotents (= partial isometries) which are what we call open. This is then used to study ordered operator spaces via an â€˜ordered noncommutative Shilovâ€¦ (More)

Given a JBW*-triple Z and a normal contractive projection P : Z âˆ’â†’ Z, we show that the (Murray-von Neumann) type of each summand of P (Z) is dominated by the type of Z.

On greater than million year timescales, carbon in the ocean-atmosphere-biosphere system is controlled by geologic inputs of CO2 through volcanic and metamorphic degassing. High atmospheric CO2 andâ€¦ (More)

We present the first measurement of pseudorapidity densities of primary charged particles near midrapidity in Au+Au collisions at sqrt[s(NN)] = 56 and 130 GeV. For the most central collisions, weâ€¦ (More)
