In his work on rings of operators in Hilbert space, John von Neumann discovered a new mathematical structure that resembled the lattice system Ln. In characterizing its properties, von Newmann founded the field of continuous geometry. For students and researchers interested in ring theory or projective geometries, von Neumann discusses his findings and their applications.
