# THE DUAL SPACES OF C*-ALGEBRAS(1)

@inproceedings{Fell2010THEDS, title={THE DUAL SPACES OF C*-ALGEBRAS(1)}, author={J. M. G. Fell}, year={2010} }

Introduction. The idea of the structure space (or dual space) A of an associative algebra A was introduced by Jacobson in [8]. The space A consists of all kernels of irreducible representations of A, with the hull-kernel topology: An ideal / in A is in the closure of a subset B ol Ail I contains the intersection of the ideals in B. For unrestricted infinite-dimensional A, the dual space need not be Hausdorff or even Ti\ and in many situations it is not very useful. However, Gelfand and others…
