Spectral States of Commutative L.m.c. Algebras

A._K. Gaur

We characterize the commutative locally multiplicative convex (l.m.c.) algebras in terms of the spectral states. We also give a characterization of spectral states in terms of commutative semisimple l.m.c. algebras. Further, with the help of radicals of l.m.c. algebras we give a necessary and a sufficient condition for an algebra to be commutative modulo its radical.
