Commutativity of projections and characterization of traces on Von Neumann algebras
We find new necessary and sufficient conditions for the commutativity of projections in terms of operator inequalities. We apply these inequalities to characterize a trace on von Neumann algebras in the class of all positive normal functionals. We obtain some characterization of a trace on von Neumann algebras in terms of the commutativity of products of projections under a weight.
