We give a concise introduction to (discrete) algebras arising from etale groupoids (aka Steinberg algebras) and describe their close relationship with groupoid \(C^*\)-algebras. Their connection to partial group rings via inverse semigroups is also explored. 
The Groupoids of Adaptable Separated Graphs and Their Type Semigroups
Given an adaptable separated graph, we construct an associated groupoid and explore its type semigroup. Specifically, we first attach to each adaptable separated graph a corresponding semigroup,Expand
A note on the core of Steinberg algebras.
In this short note we show that, for an ample Hausdorff groupoid $G$, and the Steinberg algebra $A_R(G)$ with coefficients in the commutative ring $R$, the centraliser of subalgebra $A_R(G^{(0)})$ ofExpand
The talented monoid of a directed graph with applications to graph algebras
It is a conjecture that for the class of Leavitt path algebras associated to finite directed graphs, their graded Grothendieck groups $K_0^{\mathrm{gr}}$ are a complete invariant. For a Leavitt pathExpand
A classification of ideals in Steinberg and Leavitt path algebras over arbitrary rings
We give a one-to-one correspondence between ideals in the Steinberg algebra of a Hausdorff ample groupoid G, and certain families of ideals in the group algebras of isotropy groups in G. ThisExpand
Graded Semigroups.
We systematically develop a theory of graded semigroups, that is semigroups S partitioned by groups G, in a manner compatible with the multiplication on S. We define a smash product S#G, and showExpand

In this paper we give some sufficient and some necessary conditions for an \'etale groupoid algebra to be a prime ring. As an application we recover the known primeness results for inverse semigroupExpand
Simplicity, primitivity and semiprimitivity of etale groupoid algebras with applications to inverse semigroup algebras
This paper studies simplicity, primitivity and semiprimitivity of algebras associated to \'etale groupoids. Applications to inverse semigroup algebras are presented. The results also recover theExpand
Simplicity of algebras associated to étale groupoids
We prove that the full C∗-algebra of a second-countable, Hausdorff, étale, amenable groupoid is simple if and only if the groupoid is both topologically principal and minimal. We also show that if GExpand
Ideals of Steinberg algebras of strongly effective groupoids, with applications to Leavitt path algebras
We consider the ideal structure of Steinberg algebras over a commutative ring with identity. We focus on Hausdorff groupoids that are strongly effective in the sense that their reductions to closedExpand
We develop a theory of graph C -algebras using path groupoids and inverse semigroups. Row finiteness is not assumed so that the theory applies to graphs for which there are vertices emitting aExpand
Diagonal-preserving graded isomorphisms of Steinberg algebras
We study Steinberg algebras constructed from ample Hausdorff groupoids over commutative integral domains with identity. We reconstruct (graded) groupoids from (graded) Steinberg algebras and use thisExpand
Uniqueness Theorems for Steinberg Algebras
We prove Cuntz-Krieger and graded uniqueness theorems for Steinberg algebras. We also show that a Steinberg algebra is basically simple if and only if its associated groupoid is both effective andExpand
Diagonal-preserving isomorphisms of étale groupoid algebras
Work of Jean Renault shows that, for topologically principal etale groupoids, a diagonal-preserving isomorphism of reduced $C^*$-algebras yields an isomorphism of groupoids. Several authors haveExpand
Reconstruction of graded groupoids from graded Steinberg algebras
We show how to reconstruct a graded ample Hausdorff groupoid with topologically principal neutrally graded component from the ring structure of its graded Steinberg algebra over any commutativeExpand
A homology theory for étale groupoids
Etale groupoids arise naturally as models for leaf spaces of foliations for orbifolds and for orbit spaces of discrete group actions In this paper we introduce a sheaf homology theory for etaleExpand
