Let ϕ be a faithful normal semi-finite weight on a von Neumann algebraM. For each normal semi-finite weight ϕ onM, invariant under the modular automorphism group Σ of ϕ, there is a unique self-adjoint positive operator h, affiliated with the sub-algebra of fixed-points for Σ, such that ϕ=ϕ(h·). Conversely, each such h determines a Σ-invariant normal semi-finite weight. An easy application of this non-commutative Radon-Nikodym theorem yields the result thatM is semi-finite if and only if Σ consists of inner automorphisms.
