Diagonalizing matrices over AW*-algebras

Chris Heunen, Manuel L. Reyes

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Every commuting set of normal matrices with entries in an AW*-algebra can be simultaneously diagonalized. To establish this, a dimension theory for properly infinite projections in AW*-algebras is developed. As a consequence, passing to matrix rings is a functor on the category of AW*-algebras.
