Let ([A.sub.k], [[phi].sub.k]) be arbitrary topological *-probability spaces (e.g., [C.sup.*]-probability spaces, or [W.sup.*]-probability spaces, or Banach *-probability spaces, etc.), consisting of topological *-algebras [A.sub.k] (e.g., [C.sup.*]-algebras, or [W.sup.*]-algebras, or Banach *-algebras, etc.), and corresponding (bounded or unbounded) linear functionals [[phi].sub.k], for k [member of] [DELTA], where [DELTA] is an arbitrary countable (finite or infinite) index set.
At several places in the development of the theory of topological *-algebras (especially, of the theory of Banach *-algebras and locally m-convex *-algebras) a self-adjoint square root for a self-adjoint element with a positive spectrum is needed.
