Friasse Limits of Categories of C*-algebras


Some important C*-algebras have been recently flagged and studied as Fraisse limits. In the first part of my talk, I will review the Fraisse theory of C*-algebras (or more generally, of metric structures)--in the context of category theory (as opposed to model theory)--and give examples of approximately finite-dimensional non-commutative C*-algebras which appear as Fraisse limits and exabit Cantor-space-like universality/homogeneity properties. In the second part of my talk, I will show how one can apply the fact that a C*-algebra A is the Fraisse limit of a category of C*-algebras, which is sufficiently closed under taking tensor products of ...
