We will discuss the notion of tracial stability for operator algebras. Morally, an algebra A is tracially stable if approximate homomorphisms on A are near honest homomorphisms on A. We will discuss several examples and non-examples of tracially stable algebras including certain graph products (simultaneous generalization of free and tensor products) of C*-algebras. We will also discuss properties closely related to tracial stability that provide new characterizations of amenability. Parts of this talk are based on joint work with Srivatsav Kunnawalkam Elayavalli.
