First, I will introduce Hilbert spaces, reproducing kernel Hilbert spaces, and von Neumann algebras. Then, I will show how one may construct a sequence of RKHS's associated to a finite-dimensional von Neumann algebra, which serves as a complete algebraic invariant. Finally, I will describe an RKHS structure which recovers whether or not an arbitrary von Neumann algebra has property Gamma.
