In this paper, we give a complete description of the structure of zero product and orthogonality preserving linear maps between W*-algebras. In particular, two W*-algebras are *-isomorphic if and only if there is a bijective linear map between them preserving their zero product or orthogonality structure in two directions. It is also the case when they have… CONTINUE READING
