Book DetailsMemoirs of the American Mathematical SocietyVolume: 126; 1997; 107 ppMSC: Primary 47; 46;
In this book, the author introduces and studies the construction of the crossed product of a von Neumann algebra \(M = \int _X M(x)d\mu (x)\) by an equivalence relation on \(X\) with countable cosets. This construction is the generalization of the construction of the crossed product of an abelian von Neumann algebra by an equivalence relation introduced by J. Feldman and C. C. Moore. Many properties of this construction are proved in the general case. In addition, the generalizations of the Spectral Theorem on Bimodules and of the theorem on dilations are proved.
ReadershipGraduate students and research mathematicians interested in operator algebras.
