Logic and $\mathrm{C}^*$-algebras: set theoretical dichotomies in the theory of continuous quotients

20 Jun 2017  ·  Vignati Alessandro ·

Given a nonunital $\mathrm{C}^*$-algebra $A$ one constructs its corona algebra $\mathcal M(A)/A$. This is the noncommutative analog of the \v{C}ech-Stone remainder of a topological space... We analyze the two faces of these algebras: the first one is given assuming CH, and the other one arises when Forcing Axioms are assumed. In their first face, corona $\mathrm{C}^*$-algebras have a large group of automorphisms that includes nondefinable ones. The second face is the Forcing Axiom one; here the automorphism group of a corona $\mathrm{C}^*$-algebra is as rigid as possible, including only definable elements read more
