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.

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

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

Purely Infinite Locally Compact Hausdorff étale Groupoids and Their C*-algebras

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

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

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

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

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

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



Inverse semigroups and combinatorial C*-algebras

Abstract.We describe a special class of representations of an inverse semigroup S on Hilbert's space which we term tight. These representations are supported on a subset of the spectrum of the

Preface. The impetus for this study arose from the belief that the structure of a C*-algebra is illuminated by an understanding of the manner in which abelian subalgebras embed in it. Posed in its

Haar measure for measure groupoids

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

Groupoids and C * -algebras for categories of paths

In this paper we describe a new method of defining C*-algebras from oriented combinatorial data, thereby generalizing the constructions of algebras from directed graphs, higher-rank graphs, and

Crossed products of C*-algebras

This book is intended primarily for graduate students who wish to begin research using crossed product C ∗ -algebras and is now essentially a final draft, and the final version will appear in the Surveys and Monograph series of the American Mathematical Society.

Ergodic equivalence relations, cohomology, and von Neumann algebras

. Let (X, ® ) be a standard Borel space, R c X X X an equivalence, relation e® x S. Assume each equivalence class is countable. Theorem 1:3a countable group G of Borel isomorphisms of (X, ÍB ) so

Amenability of groupoids arising from partial semigroup actions and topological higher rank graphs

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

A non-amenable groupoid whose maximal and reduced $C^*$-algebras are the same

We construct a locally compact groupoid with the properties in the title. Our example is based closely on constructions used by Higson, Lafforgue, and Skandalis in their work on counterexamples to


This paper gives some new results for the theory of quantum groupoids. First, the authors recall the relevant notions and results of the theory of Li-Rinehart algebras and bialgebras. Then, they
