Expectations in semifinite algebras

Sterling K. Berberian

Vol. 106 (1983), No. 1, 33–43
Abstract

Every semifinite von Neumann algebra A possesses an expectation : A W, where W is a commutative von Neumann subalgebra of A containing the center of A, and where extends the trace of a “large” finite subalgebra of A. An AW-algebraic proof yields applications to the embedding of semifinite AW-algebras in algebras of type I.
