 The characters \(\) of the infinite symmetric group are extended to multiplicative positive definite functions \(\) on pair partitions by using an explicit representation due to Veršik and Kerov. The von Neumann algebra \(\) generated by the fields \(\) with f in an infinite dimensional real Hilbert space \(\) is infinite and the vacuum vector is not separating. For a family \(\) depending on an integer N< - 1 an ``exclusion principle'' is found allowing at most \(\) ``identical particles'' on the same state:
The algebras \(\) are type \(\) factors. Functors of white noise \(\) are constructed and proved to be non-equivalent for different values of N.
