A characterization of $C^{\ast}$normed algebras via positive functionals
We give a characterization of $C^{\ast}$normed algebras, among
certain involutive normed ones. This is done through the existence
of enough specific positive functionals. The same question is
also
examined in some non normed (topological) algebras.
Keywords:$C^{\ast}$normed algebra, $C^*$algebra, (pre)locally $C^*$algebra, pre$C^*$bornological algebra, positive functional, locally uniformly $A$convex algebra, perfect locally $m$convex algebra, $C^*$(resp. $^*$) subnormable algebra Categories:46H05, 46K05

Character Amenability of Lipschitz Algebras
Let ${\mathcal X}$ be a locally compact metric space and let
${\mathcal A}$ be any of the Lipschitz algebras
${\operatorname{Lip}_{\alpha}{\mathcal X}}$, ${\operatorname{lip}_{\alpha}{\mathcal X}}$ or
${\operatorname{lip}_{\alpha}^0{\mathcal X}}$. In this paper, we show, as a
consequence of rather more general results on Banach algebras,
that ${\mathcal A}$ is $C$character amenable if and only if
${\mathcal X}$ is uniformly discrete.
