Abstract: The first purpose of this paper is to prove that is selfadjoint when is selfadjoint and is bounded, where is the sum of positive linear functionals on a -algebra and and are -representations generated by and , respectively. The second purpose is to prove that is standard, where is a positive linear functional on such that there exists a net of positive linear functionals on satisfying is bounded for all and for each .
