I will present joint work with Brent Nelson, where we classify the structure of free products of von Neumann algebras equipped with arbitrary states. Our techniques use our other joint work of assigning a von Neumann algebra associated to a weighted graph. I will discuss this work and how it leads to computing finite-dimensional free products.
