A few conditions for a \(C^*\)-algebra to be commutative. (English) Zbl 1474.46112

Summary: We present a few characterizations of the commutativity of \(C^*\)-algebras in terms of particular algebraic properties of power functions, the logarithmic and exponential functions, and the sine and cosine functions.
