"The book ... occupies a special place among numerous textbooks and monographs as in the subject chosen by the author so also in the method of presentation of the material ... Each chapter contains numerous interesting exercises ... can be recommended as a good introduction in the theory of $C^*$-theory for all who are not yet under the charm of this remarkable theory as well as for specialists in the field as a collection of useful and carefully selected tools and methods ... useful for numerous lectures as a textbook for special courses with different aspects of $C^*$-algebras." ---- Zentralblatt MATH
"Altogether, a very commendable introduction and collection." ---- Monatshefte für Mathematik
"One can assign parts of Davidson's book to good students learning the subject and expect good results ... the details persist even when the going gets tough ... this is the only book I know in which one can go through the BDF classification of essentially normal operators and follow, point by point, to the end." ---- Bulletin of the AMS

quantum theory and group representations. The continued
vitality of the subject owes much to the study of examples, such as the approximately finite-dimensional C*-algebras(also called AF-algebras), the Cuntz algebras, the reduced group-C*-algebras, and the examples from physics, based on Fock space techniques.
More ambitious classification schemes then flow from a closer
study of the examples. A great book for a beginning grad course!
This book is not for introduction of C*-algebras. You are assumed to know the basic stuff of this branch. It focused on relateive advanced topics and gives a lot of exercises for each chapter.
