Let and be mutually commuting unital C* subalgebras of (). It is shown that and are C* independent if and only if for all natural numbers n, m, for all n-tuples A = (A₁, ..., Aₙ) of doubly commuting nonzero operators of and m-tuples B = (B₁, ..., Bₘ) of doubly commuting nonzero operators of , $Sp(A,B)=Sp\left(A\right)\times Sp\left(B\right)$, where Sp denotes the joint Taylor spectrum.

Given a completely bounded map $u:Z\to M$ from an operator space $Z$ into a von Neumann algebra (or merely a unital dual algebra) $M$, we define $u$ to be $C$-semidiscrete if for any operator algebra $A$, the tensor operator ${I}_{A}\otimes u$ is bounded from $A{\otimes}_{\mathrm{min}}Z$ into $A{\otimes}_{\mathrm{nor}}M$, with norm less than $C$. We investigate this property and characterize it by suitable approximation properties, thus generalizing the Choi-Effros characterization of semidiscrete von Neumann algebras. Our work is an extension of some recent work of Pisier on an analogous...

From a sequence of m-fold tensor product constructions that give a hierarchy of freeness indexed by natural numbers m we examine in detail the first non-trivial case corresponding to m=2 which we call 2-freeness. We show that in this case the constructed tensor product of states agrees with the conditionally free product for correlations of order ≤ 4. We also show how to associate with 2-freeness a cocommutative *-bialgebra.

The existence of unbounded *-representations of (locally convex) tensor product *-algebras is investigated, in terms of the existence of unbounded *-representations of the (locally convex) factors of the tensor product and vice versa.
