These properties allow us to introduce some suitable operations of addition, multiplication and involution on $\t\A$. After then we are able to study MoorePenrose invertibility in $\t\A$. Because this notion strongly depends on the element $m$, we study under what conditions different elements $m$ produce just the same involution on $\t\A$. It is shown that the set of all additive continuous operators ${\cal L}_{add}({\cal H})$ acting in a complex Hilbert space ${\cal H}$ possesses unique involution only (in the sense defined below). In addition, we consider some properties of the real and complex spectra of elements belonging to $\t\A$, and show that whenever an operator sequence $\{\t A_n\} \subset {\cal L}_{add}({\cal H})$ is weakly asymptotically MoorePenrose invertible, then the real spectrum of $\t A_n^* \t A_n$ can be split in two special parts. This property has been earlier known for sequences of linear operators. Keywords: real $C^*$algebras, MoorePenrose invertibility, singular integral equations with conjugation Classification (MSC2000): 65R20 Full text of the article:
