Abstract: Let $ \mathcal{L}$ be the von Neumann algebra crossed product determined by a finite von Neumann algebra $ M$ and a trace preserving $ ^{\ast}$-automorphism $ \alpha $ of $ M$. We study the invariant subspace structure of the subalgebra $ {\mathcal{L}_ + }$ of $ \mathcal{L}$ consisting of those operators whose spectrum with respect to the dual automorphism group on $ \mathcal{L}$ is nonnegative. We investigate the conditions for two invariant subspaces $ {\mathcal{M}_1}$, and $ {\mathcal{M}_2}$ (with $ {Q_{1}},{Q_2}$ the corresponding orthogonal projections) to satisfy $ {Q_1} = {R_\upsilon }\,{Q_2}\,R_\upsilon^{\ast}$ for some partial isometry $ {R_{\upsilon }}$ in $ \mathcal{L}^{\prime}$. We use this analysis to find the general form of a $ \sigma $-weakly closed subalgebra of $ \mathcal{L}$ that contains $ {\mathcal{L}_ + }$.
