  • In this article we show that the main C*-algebras describing the canonical commutation relations of quantum physics, i.e., the Weyl and resolvent algebras, are in the class of Følner C*-algebras, a class of C*-algebras admitting a kind of finite approximations of Følner type. In particular, we show that the tracial states of the resolvent algebra are uniform locally finite dimensional.
