\(C^*\)-algèbres de Kac et algèbres de Kac. (French) Zbl 0792.46040

S. Baaj and G. Skandalis have proved that, to every Kac algebra, as studied by J.-M. Schwartz and the first author, corresponds a canonical \(C^*\)-Kac algebra, as studied by the second author. This article proves the converse result. So, we have then a complete proof that the \(C^*\) version and the von Neumann version of this theory are exactly equivalent, as, in the commutative case, are equivalent, thanks to A. Weil’s theorem, locally compact groups and measured groups with a left- invariant measure.
