Observables and Pure States

Part of the Springer Monographs in Mathematics book series (SMM)


In this section we specify the key algebraic and functional-analytic structures relevant to classical and quantum mechanics. Our main aim is to look at a C*- algebra from the point of view of its self-adjoint part. From this perspective the relationship between the respective algebraic structures of classical and quantum mechanics is particularly transparent.
