Abstract | References | Similar Articles | Additional Information


A $C^{\ast }$-algebra $A$ is said to have the FS-property if the set of all self-adjoint elements in $A$ has a dense subset of elements with finite spectrum. We shall show that this property is not stable under taking the minimal $C^{\ast }$-tensor products even in case of separable nuclear $C^{\ast }$-algebras.
