Groups of -automorphisms and invariant maps of von Neumann algebras

Kazuyuki Saitô

Vol. 57 (1975), No. 2, 553–558
Abstract

Let M be a von Neumann algebra and let G be a group acting on M by -automorphisms of M. M is G-finite if for every nonnegative element a in M with a0, there exists a G-invariant normal state ϕ such that ϕ(a)0. The main result in this paper asserts that M is G-finite if and only if for every weakly relatively compact subset K of the predual of M, the orbit of K under G is also weakly relatively compact.
