Methods of *-representations in Hilbert space are applied to study of systems of n subspaces in a linear space. It is proved that the problem of description of n-transitive subspaces in a finite-dimensional linear space is *-wild for n ≥ 5.

Key words: algebras generated by projections; irreducible inequivalent representations; transitive nonisomorphic systems of subspaces.
