A spectral theory for locally compact abelian groups of automorphisms of commutative Banach algebras

Sen Huang (1999)

Studia Mathematica

Let A be a commutative Banach algebra with Gelfand space ∆ (A). Denote by Aut (A) the group of all continuous automorphisms of A. Consider a σ(A,∆(A))-continuous group representation α:G → Aut(A) of a locally compact abelian group G by automorphisms of A. For each a ∈ A and φ ∈ ∆(A), the function φ a ( t ) : = φ ( α t a ) t ∈ G is in the space C(G) of all continuous and bounded functions on G. The weak-star spectrum σ w * ( φ a ) is defined as a closed subset of the dual group Ĝ of G. For φ ∈ ∆(A) we define Ʌ φ a to be the union of all...

Fuglede-type decompositions of representations

Marek Kosiek (2002)

Studia Mathematica

It is shown that reducing bands of measures yield decompositions not only of an operator representation itself, but also of its commutant. This has many consequences for commuting Hilbert space representations and for commuting operators on Hilbert spaces. Among other things, it enables one to construct a Lebesgue-type decomposition of several commuting contractions without assuming any von Neumann-type inequality.

On dense ideals of C*-algebras and generalizations of the Gelfand-Naimark Theorem

Jorma Arhippainen, Jukka Kauppi (2013)

Studia Mathematica

We develop the theory of Segal algebras of commutative C*-algebras, with an emphasis on the functional representation. Our main results extend the Gelfand-Naimark Theorem. As an application, we describe faithful principal ideals of C*-algebras. A key ingredient in our approach is the use of Nachbin algebras to generalize the Gelfand representation theory.

On the algebra of smooth operators

Tomasz Ciaś (2013)

Studia Mathematica

Let s be the space of rapidly decreasing sequences. We give the spectral representation of normal elements in the Fréchet algebra L(s',s) of so-called smooth operators. We also characterize closed commutative *-subalgebras of L(s',s) and establish a Hölder continuous functional calculus in this algebra. The key tool is the property (DN) of s.

Spectral subspaces for the Fourier algebra

K. Parthasarathy, R. Prakash (2007)

Colloquium Mathematicae

In this note we define and explore, à la Godement, spectral subspaces of Banach space representations of the Fourier-Eymard algebra of a (nonabelian) locally compact group.

The Banach algebra of continuous bounded functions with separable support

M. R. Koushesh (2012)

Studia Mathematica

We prove a commutative Gelfand-Naimark type theorem, by showing that the set C s ( X ) of continuous bounded (real or complex valued) functions with separable support on a locally separable metrizable space X (provided with the supremum norm) is a Banach algebra, isometrically isomorphic to C₀(Y) for some unique (up to homeomorphism) locally compact Hausdorff space Y. The space Y, which we explicitly construct as a subspace of the Stone-Čech compactification of X, is countably compact, and if X is non-separable,...
