### K-theory of ultrapowers

It may well be a trivial question but I was wondering if there is any relation between $K$-groups and ultrapowers of $C^*$-algebras. For instance, if $A$ is a $C^*$-algebra does $K_0(A^U)$ depend on ...

### Double ultrapower of the hyperfinite $II_1$-factor

Let $\omega$ be a free ultrafilter on the natural numbers and $R$ be the hyperfinite $II_1$-factor (the definition of $R$ is recalled in the comments).
Question: Does there exist another free ...

### iterating ultrapowers of C*-algebras

Let $A$ be something interesting like the C*-algebra of compact operators on a separable infinite-dimensional Hilbert space and let $A^1$ be an ultrapower of $A$. Then $A^1$ is a primitive C*-algebra ...
