### Abstract

INTRODUCTION The Gleason theorem (1) is the corner-stone of measurement theory in quantum mechanics. It says, that if the quantum mechanical system can be described by a Hilbert space of dimension at least three, then any state of the physical system corresponds to von Neumann operator. The original proof of this theorem is highly non-trivial, and only after 30 years later a simpler proof using also Piron's geometrical lemma [Ref. 2, pp. 75#78] was present by Cooke et al. (3) Today Gleason's theorem is used in quantum measurement as well as in mathematics. Dvurec# enskij is the author of a monograph, (4) where there are described plenty of applications of Gleason's theorem to different areas of mathematics. 1737 0015-9018#00#1000-1737#18.00#0 # 2000 Plenum Publishing Corporation 1
