Über die Wiener-Eigenschaft bei projektiven Limites lokalkompakter Gruppen

  • Bernhard Heß


Leptin posed in [1] the problem to determine the class [W] of locally compact groups G characterized by the following property: Every proper closed two-sided idealJ in the Banach-*-algebraL1(G) is annihilated by some nondegenerate continuous *-representation π ofL1(G) in a Hilbert space. Our main result: A locally compact group G, which is representable as a projective limit of a system of factor groups G/k, k compact normal subgroups, lies in [W] if and only if all the G/k are in [W].
