Abstract: For A a quasinormal operator on Hilbert space, we determine the irreducible representations of $ {C^ \ast }(A)$, the $ {C^ \ast }$-algebra generated by A and the identity. We also explicitly describe the topology on the space of unitary equivalence classes of irreducible representations of $ {C^ \ast }(A)$ and calculate the regularized transform of $ {C^ \ast }(A)$, thus exhibiting an isomorphic copy of $ {C^ \ast }(A)$.
