I am interested mainly in ring theory and homological algebra. Now I want to know about the research methods of AW*-algebras. So I want to know the answer to the question:"what methods have been used to study AW*-algebras up to now?" Thank you very much!

whatabout $AW^\ast$-algebras?" would be my response, regardless of any issues with the English language – Yemon Choi Jan 17 '13 at 0:58
