# nLab Gelfand-Raikov theorem

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