## Abstract

A contractive tuple is a tuple $(T_1, \ldots , T_d)$ of operators on a common Hilbert space such that $T_1T_1^* + \cdots + T_dT_d^* \leq 1$. It is said to be $q$-commuting if $T_jT_i = q_{ij}T_iT_j$ for all $1 \leq i < j \leq d$, where $q_{ij}$, $1\leq i<j\leq d$ are complex numbers. These are higher-dimensional and non-commutative generalizations of a contraction. A particular example of this is the $q$-commuting shift. In this note, we investigate model theory for q-commuting contractive tuples using representations of the $q$-commuting shift.
