We study a family of C*-algebras generalizing both Katsura algebras and certain algebras introduced by Nekrashevych in terms of self-similar groups. 

Self-Similar Graph C*-Algebras and Partial Crossed Products

In a recent paper, Pardo and the first named author introduced a class of C*-algebras which which are constructed from an action of a group on a graph. This class was shown to include many

The tight groupoid of an inverse semigroup

In this work we present algebraic conditions on an inverse semigroup $$\mathcal {S}$$S (with zero) which imply that its associated tight groupoid $$\mathcal {G}_\mathrm{tight}(\mathcal

C*-algebras of Boolean inverse monoids - traces and invariant means

To a Boolean inverse monoid $S$ we associate a universal C*-algebra $C_B^*(S)$ and show that it is equal to Exel's tight C*-algebra of $S$. We then show that any invariant mean on $S$ (in the sense

C*-algebras and self-similar groups

Abstract We study Cuntz-Pimsner algebras naturally associated with self-similar groups (like iterated monodromy groups of expanding dynamical systems). In particular, we show how to reconstruct the


In this note we show that a combinatorial model of Kirchberg algebras in the UCT, namely the Katsura algebras OA,B, can be expressed both as groupoid C � -algebras and as inverse semigroup crossed

On the Burnside problem on periodic groups

It is proved that the free $m$-generated Burnside groups $\Bbb{B}(m,n)$ of exponent $n$ are infinite provided that $m>1$, $n\ge2^{48}$.

A construction of actions on Kirchberg algebras which induce given actions on their K-groups

Abstract We prove that every action of a finite group all of whose Sylow subgroups are cyclic on the K-theory of a Kirchberg algebra can be lifted to an action on the Kirchberg algebra. The proof

Graphs, Groupoids, and Cuntz–Krieger Algebras

We associate to each locally finite directed graphGtwo locally compact groupoidsGandG(★). The unit space ofGis the space of one–sided infinite paths inG, andG(★) is the reduction ofGto the space of


Abstract. We associate a ∗ -bimodule over the group algebra to every self-similar group action on the space of one-sided sequences. Completions ofthe group algebra, which agree with the bimodule are

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

${{C}^{*}}$ -Algebras of Irreversible Dynamical Systems

Abstract We show that certain ${{C}^{*}}$ -algebras which have been studied by, among others, Arzumanian, Vershik, Deaconu, and Renault, in connection with a measure-preserving transformation of a
