Classification of W*-Algebras

Part of the Classics in Mathematics book series (CLASSICS, volume 60)


Let p, q be two projections of a W*-algebra M. If there exists a partial isometry u in M such that u*u = p and uu* = q, then p is said to be equivalent to q and denote this by p~q. If there exists a projection q1 (≤q) equivalent to p, we write this by p<q or q>p. We write p~q or p<q by p≤q.
