Abstract

Huruya [4] has proven that, for C*-algebras A1 and A2, $(A_1 \otimes A_2)^{\ast\ast} = A^{\ast\ast}_1 \overline\otimes A^{\ast\ast}_2$ for every A2 if and only if A1 is scattered. We strengthen this by proving that $(A_1 \otimes A_2)^{\ast\ast} = A^{\ast\ast}_1 \overline\otimes A^{\ast\ast}_2$ if and only if A1 or A2 is scattered. We discuss ramifications to representation theory and related questions regarding normal representations of W*-tensor products.
