Motivated by this question and its great answers, I become very curious to know what do we know about RFD (residually finite dimensional) groups and $C^*$algebras, e.g. do we know how these properties behave under various constructions (amalgamated product etc.). Are there some survey articles on these topics?

$\begingroup$ These seem like two separate questions ... maybe delete the second paragraph and ask it separately? $\endgroup$– Nik WeaverDec 12, 2021 at 4:38

1$\begingroup$ To my knowledge, there aren't any survey articles on the topic. However, here's a link to the slides of a talk of Kristin Courtney where she survey's a lot of the theory kristincourtneycom.files.wordpress.com/2019/05/ecoas_2018.pdf . I would also check the papers [K. Courtney and T. Shulman, Free products with amalgamation over central C*subalgebras] and [T. Shulman, Central amalgamation of groups and the RFD property]. $\endgroup$– Jamie GabeDec 13, 2021 at 12:41
