Elements of $C^*$-algebras attaining their norm in a finite-dimensional representation
We characterize the class of RFD $C^*$-algebras as those containing a dense subset of elements that attain their norm under a finite-dimensional representation. We show further that this subset is the whole space precisely when every irreducible representation of the $C^*$-algebra is finite-dimensional, which is equivalent to the $C^*$-algebra having no simple infinite-dimensional AF subquotient. We apply techniques from this proof to show the existence of elements in more general classes of $C^*$-algebras whose norms in finite-dimensional representations fit certain prescribed properties.

A Class of Abstract Linear Representations for Convolution Function Algebras over Homogeneous Spaces of Compact Groups
This paper introduces a class of abstract linear representations on Banach convolution function algebras over homogeneous spaces of compact groups. Let $G$ be a compact group and $H$ be a closed subgroup of $G$. Let $\mu$ be the normalized $G$-invariant measure over the compact homogeneous space $G/H$ associated to the Weil's formula and $1\le p\lt \infty$. We then present a structured class of abstract linear representations of the Banach convolution function algebras $L^p(G/H,\mu)$.
