Abstract

This note contains a simple proof of the following theorem of Arveson: If $\mathscr{A}$ is an irreducible subspace of $\mathscr{B}(H)$, then the identity map $\phi_0(A) = A$ on $\mathscr{A}$ has a unique completely positive extension to $\mathscr{B}(H)$ if and only if the quotient map $q$ by the compact operators is not completely isometric on $\mathscr{S} = \lbrack \mathscr{A} + \mathscr{A}^\ast \rbrack$.
