Abstract. The main purpose of this paper is to study structure theorems of Banach $$*$$-algebras generated by semicircular elements. In particular, we are interested in the cases where given semicircular elements are induced by orthogonal projections in a $$C^{*}$$-probability space.

Keywords: free probability, orthogonal projections, weighted-semicircular elements, semicircular elements.
