A pro-C-star-algebra (also called locally C-star algebra) is very much like a pro-object in the category of C-star-algebras, but the inverse limits are in fact taken in an ambient category of topological *-algebras. σ\sigma-C *C^*-algebras are those pro-C *C^*-algebras which may be obtained as countable inverse limits (there are also intrinsic characterizations in terms of seminorms).

A class of topological algebras which correspond to pro-C *C^\ast-algebras can be characterized in terms of properties of the topological algebra:
