Title: Recent progress on Naimark’s problem

Abstract: In 2004 Akemann and Weaver used diamond on omega_1 to solve a long-standing Naimark’s problem about representations of C*-algebras (all definitions and intuition will be provided). It is still not known whether their result can be proved in ZFC, CH, or even from diamond on some other cardinal. I will say a few words on the recent
progress.
