Overview

This is an all-encompassing and exhaustive exposition of the theory of infinite-dimensional Unitary Representations of Locally Compact Groups and its generalization to representations of Banach algebras. The presentation is detailed, accessible, and self-contained (except for some elementary knowledge in algebra, topology, and abstract measure theory). In the later chapters the reader is brought to the frontiers of present-day knowledge in the area of Mackey normal subgroup analysisand its generalization to the context of Banach *-Algebraic Bundles.

Audience: Graduate students and research mathematicians.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
The authors have succeeded admirably, and these two volumes are a pleasure to read as well as being a valuable reference.
[It] contains a valuable explanation of the relationship between representation theory and physics which every mathematician should be made aware of.
—MATHEMATICAL REVIEWS
There are many helpful remarks and asides throughout the text as well as extensive exercises and historical discussions at the end of each chapter. These two volumes are a valuable addition to anyone's library as well as a pleasurable avenue to representation theory.
—MATHEMATICAL REVIEW
The work is a most authoritative account of representation theory and Mackey's theory; it will no doubt become the standard work of references in thefield for years to come.
—MONATSHEFTE FUR MATHEMATIK
These volumes have been prepared with great care. The exposition is clear and thorough.
—AMERICAN MATHEMATICAL MONTHLY
