Overview

With a unique approach and presenting an array of new and intriguing t opics, Mathematical Quantization explores operator algebras. The first half of the book quickly builds the operator algebra setting. The aut hor then uses this as a unifying theme in the second half, in which he treats several "hot" research topics-some for the first time in book form. These include the Moyal plane, compact quantum groups, operator spaces, and operator modules. For graduate students, this book offers an ideal introduction to a large area of active research and for profe ssionals in operator algebras and functional analysis, it provides the m with a readable tour of the current state -of-the-field.
