The geometric structure of generalized state spaces Academic Article uri icon


  • The facial structure of the generalized state space of a C*-algebra A is investigated. The norm closed and w*-closed faces are characterized in terms of projections in A** ⊗ Mn. Matricially convex faces are introduced and shown to correspond to the faces of the state space of A. © 1981.
