The spectral theorem for locally normal operators

Aurelian Gheondea

Abstract. We prove the spectral theorem for locally normal operators in terms of a locally spectral measure. In order to do this, we first obtain some characterisations of local projections and we single out and investigate the concept of a locally spectral measure.

Keywords: locally Hilbert space, locally \(C^*\)-algebra, locally normal operator, local projection, locally spectral measure.
