Can Boutet de Monvel’s algebra on a compact manifold with boundary be obtained as the algebra Ψ(G) of pseudodifferential operators on some Lie groupoid G? If it could, the kernel G of the principal symbol homomorphism would be isomorphic to the groupoid C∗-algebra C∗(G). While the answer to the above question remains open, we exhibit in this paper a groupoid G such that C∗(G) possesses an ideal I isomorphic to G. In fact, we prove first that G ≃ Ψ⊗K with the C∗-algebra Ψ generated by the zero… CONTINUE READING
