This book summarizes recent as well as classical results on states and measures on operator algebras and related problems of axiomatic quantum theory (Gleason Theorem for von Neumann projection lattices, completeness criteria for inner product spaces, automorphisms of quantum systems, decoherence functional, Jauch-Piron states, independence of quantum systems, etc.). Among others it contains author's contributions, some new results and insights. (For more details see Monograph .) - J.Hamhalter: Quantum
