Algebra of operators affiliated with a finite type I von Neumann algebra

Adam Wegert


The aim of the paper is to prove that the -algebra of all (closed densely de ned linear) operators aliated with a nite type I von Neumann algebra admits a unique center-valued trace, which turns out to be, in a sense, normal. It is also demonstrated that for no other von Neumann algebras similar constructions can be performed.
