Real AW*-Algebras of type I

  • Sh. A. Ayupov
Brief Communications


Let R be a real AW*-algebra, and suppose that its complexification M = R + iR is also a (complex) AW*-algebra. We prove that R is of type I if and only if so is M.

Key words

real C*-algebra real W*-algebra real AW*-algebra complexification type I algebra
