# \'Etale groupoids and their $C^*$-algebras

@article{Sims2017EtaleGA, title={\'Etale groupoids and their \$C^*\$-algebras}, author={Aidan Sims}, journal={arXiv: Operator Algebras}, year={2017} }

These notes were written as supplementary material for a five-hour lecture series presented at the Centre de Recerca Mathem\`atica at the Universitat Aut\`onoma de Barcelona from the 13th to the 17th of March 2017. The intention of these notes is to give a brief overview of some key topics in the area of $C^*$-algebras associated to \'etale groupoids. The scope has been deliberately contained to the case of \'etale groupoids with the intention that much of the representation-theoretic…

### Almost elementariness and fiberwise amenability for \'etale groupoids.

- Mathematics
- 2020

In this paper, we introduce two new approximation properties for \'etale groupoids, almost elementariness and (ubiquitous) fiberwise amenability, inspired by Matui's and Kerr's notions of almost…

### The Groupoid Approach to Leavitt Path Algebras

- MathematicsLeavitt Path Algebras and Classical K-Theory
- 2020

When the theory of Leavitt path algebras was already quite advanced, it was discovered that some of the more difficult questions were susceptible to a new approach using topological groupoids. The…

In this paper, we introduce properties including groupoid comparison, pure infiniteness and paradoxical comparison as well as a new algebraic tool called groupoid semigroup for locally compact…

### The structure of KMS weights on \'etale groupoid $C^{*}$-algebras

- Mathematics
- 2020

We generalise a number of classical results from the theory of KMS states to KMS weights in the setting of $C^{*}$-dynamical systems arising from a continuous groupoid homomorphism $c:\mathcal{G} \to…

### A groupoid picture of the Elek algebras

- MathematicsMATHEMATICA SCANDINAVICA

We reformulate a construction by Gábor Elek, which associates $C^{\ast} $-algebras with uniformly recurrent subgroups, in the language of groupoid $C^{\ast} $-algebras. This allows us to simplify…

### $K$-theory of two-dimensional substitution tiling spaces from $AF$-algebras

- Mathematics
- 2022

Given a two-dimensional substitution tiling space, we show that, under some reasonable assumptions, the K-theory of the groupoid C∗-algebra of its unstable groupoid can be explicitly reconstructed…

### Topological full groups of ample groupoids with applications to graph algebras

- MathematicsInternational Journal of Mathematics

We study the topological full group of ample groupoids over locally compact spaces. We extend Matui’s definition of the topological full group from the compact to the locally compact case. We provide…

### Rigidity results for $L^p$-operator algebras and applications

- Mathematics
- 2019

For $p\in [1,\infty)$, we show that every unital $L^p$-operator algebra contains a unique maximal $C^*$-subalgebra, which we call the $C^*$-core. When $p\neq 2$, the $C^*$-core of an $L^p$-operator…

It is proved that Mackey's measure groupoids possess an analogue of Haar measure for locally compact groups; and many properties of the group Haar measure generalize. Existence of Haar measure for…

- Mathematics

We consider the amenability of groupoids $G$ equipped with a group valued cocycle $c : G → Q$ with amenable kernel $ c^{ −1} (e)$. We prove a general result which implies, in particular, that $G$ is…
