Some necessary applications of logic to operator algebras

York University

Connections between logic and operator algebras in the past century were few and sparse. Recently, some long-standing open problems on the structure of operator algebras were solved using methods from mathematical logic. I will survey some of these results, with a particular emphasis on applications of set theory.
