Locally von Neumann algebras II

  • Maria Joiţa


In this paper, we will prove some properties of locally von Neumann algebras. In particular, we will show that every locally von Neumann algebra is the dual of a certain locally convex space and also, we will show the existence of a polar decomposition for every element in a locally von Neumann algebra.
