dc.description.abstract The purpose of this thesis is to describe in detail the structure of arbitrary operator systems S B(H), where H is assumed to be of finite dimension, using Arveson's non-commutative Choquet theory, and to determine the C* -envelope of S in certain special cases of interest. Arveson classifies these operator systems as either reduced or non-reduced, and we look at these classifications in detail. S is said to be reduced when its boundary ideal is {0} and non-reduced otherwise. We will give examples of 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional operator systems; show what Arveson's parametrization would be in such cases; and determine the C*-envelopes and boundary ideals. en_US
