Title: On spectral and decomposable operators in finite von Neumann algebras.

Abstract: We describe spectral and decomposable operators on Hilbert spaces and then, in the case of operators belonging to finite von Neumann algebras, relate these properties to the Haagerup-Schultz subspaces of the operators. Finally, we will examine certain such operators arising naturally in free probability theory.
