This publication is worried with the speculation of unbounded derivations in C*-algebras, an issue whose learn used to be stimulated via questions in quantum physics and statistical mechanics, and to which the writer has made substantial contributions. this can be an energetic quarter of study, and some of the most formidable goals of the speculation is to enhance quantum statistical mechanics in the framework of C*-theory. The presentation concentrates on issues regarding quantum statistical mechanics and differentiations on manifolds. one of many ambitions is to formulate the absence theorem of section transitions in its such a lot common shape in the C* environment. For the 1st time, the writer globally constructs, inside of that atmosphere, derivations for a reasonably broad classification of interacting types, and offers a brand new axiomatic therapy of the development of time evolutions and KMS states.
