The reduced C*-algebra of the interior of the isotropy in any Hausdorff étale groupoid G embeds as a C*-subalgebra M of the reduced C*-algebra of G. We prove that the set of pure states of M with unique extension is dense, and deduce that any representation of the reduced C*-algebra of G that is injective on M is faithful. We prove that there is a conditional expectation from the reduced C*-algebra of G onto M if and only if the interior of the isotropy in G is closed. Using this, we prove that…

In a recent series of papers, Kumjian, Pask and Sims [2–5] have investigated the effect of ‘twisting’ C∗-algebras associated to higher-rank graphs using a categorical 2-cocycle on the graph. This

Simplicity of algebras associated to non-Hausdorff groupoids

We prove a uniqueness theorem and give a characterization of simplicity for Steinberg algebras associated to non-Hausdorff ample groupoids. We also prove a uniqueness theorem and give a

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

Cartan Subalgebras of Topological Graph Algebras and k-Graph C*-algebras

In this paper, two sufficient and necessary conditions are given. The first one characterizes when the boundary path groupoid of a topological graph without singular vertices has closed interior of

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 $A_R(G^{(0)})$ of

A new uniqueness theorem for the tight C*-algebra of an inverse semigroup

We prove a new uniqueness theorem for the tight C*-algebras of an inverse semigroup by generalising the uniqueness theorem given for ´etale groupoid C*-algebras by Brown, Nagy, Reznikoff, Sims, and

Simplicity criteria for \'etale groupoid C∗-algebras

We develop a framework suitable for obtaining simplicity criteria for reduced C∗-algebras of Hausdorff \'etale groupoids. This is based on the study of certain non-degenerate C∗-subalgebras (in the



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

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 G

Pseudo-Diagonals and Uniqueness Theorems

We examine a certain type of abelian C*-subalgebra that allows one to give a unified treatment of two uniqueness theorems: for graph C*algebras and for certain reduced crossed products. This note is

A class ofC*-algebras and topological Markov chains

In this paper we present a class of C*-algebras and point out its close relationship to topological Markov chains, whose theory is part of symbolic dynamics. The C*-algebra construction starts from a


Suppose that G is a second countable locally compact groupoid with a Haar system and with abelian isotropy. We show that the groupoid C∗-algebra C∗(G, λ) has continuous trace if and only if there is


We associate to each row-nite directed graph E a universal Cuntz-Krieger C-algebra C(E), and study how the distribution of loops in E aects the structure of C(E) .W e prove that C(E) is AF if and

Twisted $C^*$-algebras associated to finitely aligned higher-rank graphs

We introduce twisted relative Cuntz-Krieger algebras associated to finitely aligned higher-rank graphs and give a comprehensive treatment of their fundamental structural properties. We establish

Higher Rank Graph C-Algebras

Building on recent work of Robertson and Steger, we associate a C{algebra to a combinatorial object which may be thought of as a higher rank graph. This C{algebra is shown to be isomorphic to that of
