Suppose I have a direct integral of Hilbert spaces $H = \int^\oplus H_x dx $, and suppose I have an operator $T: H \to H$ which is decomposable, and so it can be written as $T = \int^\oplus T_x$ for some measurable field of operators $T_x$. Suppose furthermore that every $T_x$ is self-adjoint (and so also $T$ is self-adjoint), and let $f$ be a bounded measurable function on $\mathbb R$.
Under what conditions $f(T)$ is decomposable (I guess always) and equal to the integral of the field $f(T_x)$ ?
One paper which says something about this problem is Chow, Gilfeather, "Functions of direct integrals of operators". It actually states that the only necessary condition is that $T_x$ are contractions. But unfortunately I don't understand this paper, since it doesn't state its assumptions very precisely - for example, it doesn't seem to be assumed that the operator $T$ (or operators $T_x$) is (are) normal, and so I don't what kind of functional calculus is considered.
