Abstract: The ideal structure of the algebra has been studied in many papers under various topological assumptions on the space *X* and the algebra *A*. In this paper we shall study the case where *X* is a completely regular topological space and *A* is a locally convex star algebra. In such case the structure of closed (proper) ideals can be described not only by using points of *X* and some family of closed ideals of *A*, as usual, but also by using points of the carrier space of *A* and some family of closed ideals of depending on those points and also by using different kind of slice ideals of .
