Projective Tensor Products of C*-Algebras
ABSTRACT

For C*-algebras A and B, the constant involved in the canonical embedding of into is shown to be . We also consider the corresponding operator space version of this embedding. Ideal structure of is obtained in case A or B has only finitely many closed ideals.
