  • Abstract We show that the following operator algebras have hyperarithmetic theory: the hyperfinite II$_1$ factor $\mathcal R$, $L(\varGamma )$ for $\varGamma $ a finitely generated group with solvable word problem, $C^*(\varGamma )$ for $\varGamma $ a finitely presented group, $C^*_\lambda (\varGamma )$ for $\varGamma $ a finitely generated group with solvable word problem, $C(2^\omega )$ and $C(\mathbb P)$ (where $\mathbb P$ is the pseudoarc). We also show that the Cuntz algebra $\mathcal O_2$ has a hyperarithmetic theory provided that the Kirchberg embedding problems have affirmative answers. Finally, we prove that if there is an existentially closed (e.c.) II$_1$ factor (resp. $\textrm{C}^*$-algebra) that does not have hyperarithmetic theory, then there are continuum many theories of e.c. II$_1$ factors (resp. e.c. $\textrm{C}^*$-algebras).
