Derivations of AW-algebras are inner

Dorte Olesen

Vol. 53 (1974), No. 2, 555–561
Abstract

Using the theory of spectral subspaces associated with a group of isometries of a Banach space it is proved that each derivation of an AW-algebra is inner. This constructive method of proof yields a generator b for the case of a skewadjoint derivation which is seen to be the unique positive generator such that bp= δ|Apfor each central projection p in the AW-algebra A.
