Gelfand-Raikov theorem

Gel’fand-Raikov theorem (Гельфанд-Райков) The irreducible unitary representations of a locally compact topological group GG separates its points. In other words, for any two group elements g,hGg,h\in G there exist an irreducible unitary representation ρ:GU(H)\rho : G\to U(H) such that ρ(g)ρ(h)\rho(g)\neq \rho(h).
