In functional analysis, an operator algebra is an algebra of continuous linear operators on a topological vector space with the multiplication given by the composition of mappings

In mathematics, especially functional analysis, a Banach algebra, named after Stefan Banach, is an associative algebra A over the real or complex numbers which at the same time is also a Banach space

6 facts

In mathematics, specifically in ring theory, an algebra over a commutative ring is a generalization of the concept of an algebra over a field, where the base field K is replaced by a commutative ring R. Any ring can be thought of as an algebra over t

In mathematics, a von Neumann algebra or W*-algebra is a *-algebra of bounded operators on a Hilbert space that is closed in the weak operator topology and contains the identity operator

an offshoot of first-order logic (and of algebra of sets), deals with a set of relations closed under operators

In mathematics, specifically in category theory, an F-coalgebra for an endofunctor is an object A of \mathbfC together with a \mathbfC-morphism In this sense F-coalgebras are dual to F-algebras

In mathematics, an associative algebra is a vector space (or more generally, a module) which also allows the multiplication of vectors in a distributive and associative manner

8 facts

In mathematics, a σ-algebra (sigma is a Greek letter, upper case Σ, lower case σ) over a set X is a nonempty collection Σ of subsets of X (including X itself) that is closed under complementation and countable unions of its members

the branch of mathematics concerned with the study of vectors, vector spaces (also called linear spaces), linear maps (also called linear transformations), and systems of linear equations

23 facts

the subject area of mathematics that studies algebraic structures, such as groups, rings, fields, modules, vector spaces, and algebras

10 facts

a fundamental and relatively basic form of algebra taught to students who are presumed to have little or no formal knowledge of mathematics beyond arithmetic

7 facts

In abstract algebra, a Boolean algebra or Boolean lattice is a complemented distributive lattice

17 facts

the field of mathematics that studies algebraic structures themselves, not examples ("models") of algebraic structures

system (CAS) is a software program that facilitates symbolic mathematics

6 facts

In mathematics, a Lie algebra is an algebraic structure whose main use is in studying geometric objects such as Lie groups and differentiable manifolds

9 facts

In mathematics a field of sets is a pair \langle X, \mathcalF \rangle where X is a set and \mathcalF is an algebra over X i.e., a non-empty subset of the power set of X closed under the intersection and union of pairs of sets and under complements of

In mathematics, Heyting algebras are special partially ordered sets that constitute a generalization of Boolean algebras, named after Arend Heyting

12 facts

In mathematics, an algebra over a field K, or a K-algebra, is a vector space A over K equipped with a compatible notion of multiplication of elements of A. A straightforward generalisation allows K to be any commutative ring
