dc.description.abstract This thesis carries out some of classical integration theory in the context of an operator algebra. The starting point is measure on the projections of an abelian von Neumann algebra. This yields an integral on the self-adjoint operators whose spectral projections lie in the algebra. For this integral a Radon-Nikodym theorem, as well as the usual convergence theorems is proved. The methods and results of this thesis generalize, to non-commutative von Neumann Algebras [2, 3, 5].
