Description
Let $(A, A_o)$ be a topological quasi *-algebra, which means in particular that $A_o$ is a topological *-algebra, dense in $A$. Let $\pi^o$ be a *-representation of $A_o$ in some pre-Hilbert space ${\cal D} \subset {\cal H}$. Then we present several ways of extending $\pi^o$, by closure, to some larger quasi *-algebra contained in $A$, either by Hilbert space operators, or by sesquilinear forms on ${\cal D}$. Explicit examples are discussed, both abelian and nonabelian, including the CCR algebra.
