Abstract

In this paper we consider near inclusions $A\subseteq_\gamma B$ of C$^*$-algebras. We show that if $B$ is a separable type $\mathrm{I}$ C$^*$-algebra and $A$ satisfies Kadison's similarity problem, then $A$ is also type $\mathrm{I}$ and use this to obtain an embedding of $A$ into $B$.
Keywords: C$^*$-algebras, near inclusions, perturbations, type I C$^*$-algebras, similarity problem C$^*$-algebras, near inclusions, perturbations, type I C$^*$-algebras, similarity problem
