We show that the following five categories are equivalent: (1) the opposite category of commutative von Neumann algebras; (2) compact strictly localizable enhanced measurable spaces; (3) measurable locales; (4) hyperstonean locales; (5) hyperstonean spaces. This result can be seen as a measure-theoretic counterpart of the Gelfand duality between commutative unital C*-algebras and compact Hausdorff topological spaces. 
Abelian von Neumann algebras, measure algebras and L^\infty-spaces
We give a fresh account of the astonishing interplay between abelian von Neumann algebras, L∞-spaces and measure algebras, including an exposition of Maharam’s theorem from the von Neumann algebraExpand
Localizable locally determined measurable spaces with negligibles
We study measurable spaces equipped with a σ-ideal of negligible sets. We find conditions under which they admit a localizable locally determined version – a kind of fiber space that describesExpand
Borel and analytic sets in locales.
We systematically develop analogs of basic concepts from classical descriptive set theory in the context of pointless topology. Our starting point is to take the elements of the free complete BooleanExpand
Foundational aspects of uncountable measure theory: Gelfand duality, Riesz representation, canonical models, and canonical disintegration
We collect several foundational results regarding the interaction between locally compact spaces, probability spaces and probability algebras, and commutative $C^*$-algebras and von Neumann algebrasExpand
On Murray-von Neumann algebras—I: topological, order-theoretic and analytical aspects
For a countably decomposable finite von Neumann algebra $\mathscr{R}$, we show that any choice of a faithful normal tracial state engenders the same measure topology on $\mathscr{R}$ in the sense ofExpand
