Introduction. The purpose of this paper is to study noncommutative C*algebras as Banach spaces. The Gelfand representation of an abelian C*-algebra as the algebra of all continuous complex-valued functions on its spectrum has made it possible to apply the techniques of measure theory and the topological properties of compact Hausdorff spaces to the study of such algebras. No such structure theory of general C*-algebras is available at present. Many theorems about the Banach space structure of… CONTINUE READING
