Abstract: Given a concrete separable $ {C^ \ast }$-algebra $ \mathfrak{A}$ with unit and a faithful normal finite trace $ \tau $ on $ \mathfrak{A}''$, we introduce a notion of $ \tau $-almost every state on $ \mathfrak{A}$ which has the proper relationship with Segal's noncommutative integration theory. We then prove that any $ \ast $-automorphism of $ \mathfrak{A}''$ is implemented by some point transformation in the state space of $ \mathfrak{A}$, defined $ \tau $-almost everywhere. This generalizes the classical result of von Neumann-Maharam.
