abstract

  • We introduce a version of logic for metric structures suitable for applications to C*-algebras and tracial von Neumann algebras. We also prove a purely model-theoretic result to the effect that the theory of a separable metric structure is stable if and only if all of its ultrapowers associated with nonprincipal ultrafilters on N are isomorphic even when the Continuum Hypothesis fails.
