In this book we give a complete geometric description of state spaces of operator algebras, Jordan as well as associative. That is, we give axiomatic characterizations of those convex sets that are state spaces of C*-algebras and von Neumann algebras, together with such characterizations for the normed Jordan algebras called JB-algebras and JBW-algebras. These non- associative algebras generalize C*-algebras and von Neumann algebras re- spectively, and the characterization of their state spaces is not only of interest in ...
