276. Camilo Enrique Argoty Pulido
Model theory of a non-degenerate representation of a unital C*-algebra

Submission date: 28 October 2010.


We study the theory of a Hilbert space H as a module for a unital C*-algebra A from the point of view of continuous logic. We show this theory, in an appropiate language, has quantifier elimination and it is superstable. We show that for every v in H, the type of v over the empty set is in correspondence with the positive linear functional over A defined by v. Finally, we characterize forking, orthogonality and domination of types and show the theory has weak elimination of imaginaries.
