Equilibrium states on graph algebras

We consider operator-algebraic dynamical systems given by actions of the real line on unital C∗-algebras, and especially the equilibrium states (or KMS states) of such systems. We are particularly

Reconstructing directed graphs from generalized gauge actions on their Toeplitz algebras

Abstract We show how to reconstruct a finite directed graph E from its Toeplitz algebra, its gauge action, and the canonical finite-dimensional abelian subalgebra generated by the vertex projections.

Limits of KMS states on Toeplitz algebras of finite graphs

The structure of KMS states of Toeplitz algebras associated to finite graphs equipped with the gauge action is determined by an Huef–Laca–Raeburn–Sims. Their results imply that extremal KMS states of

KMS states on C ⁎ -algebras associated to a family of ⁎-commuting local homeomorphisms

Von Neumann algebras of strongly connected higher-rank graphs

We investigate the factor types of the extremal KMS states for the preferred dynamics on the Toeplitz algebra and the Cuntz–Krieger algebra of a strongly connected finite $$k$$k-graph. For inverse

KMS states on C*-algebras associated to local homeomorphisms

For every Hilbert bimodule over a C*-algebra, there are natural gauge actions of the circle on the associated Toeplitz algebra and Cuntz–Pimsner algebra, and hence natural dynamics obtained by

C*-dynamical invariants and Toeplitz algebras of graphs

In recent joint work of the authors with Laca, we precisely formulated the notion of partition function in the context of C*-dynamical systems. Here, we compute the partition functions of




We describe KMS-states on the C -algebras of etale groupoids in terms of measurable elds of traces on the C -algebras of the isotropy groups. We use this description to analyze tracial states on the

KMS states on finite-graph C*-algebras

We study KMS states on finite-graph C*-algebras with sinks and sources. We compare finite-graph C*-algebras with C*-algebras associated with complex dynamical systems of rational functions. We show

KMS states of quasi-free dynamics on Pimsner algebras

The Toeplitz algebra of a Hilbert bimodule

Suppose a C*-algebra A acts by adjointable operators on a Hilbert A-module X. Pimsner constructed a C*-algebra O_X which includes, for particular choices of X, crossed products of A by Z, the Cuntz

KMS states on C^*-algebras associated to expansive maps

Using Walters' version of the Ruelle-Perron-Frobenius Theorem we show the existence and uniqueness of KMS states for a certain one-parameter group of automorphisms on a C*-algebra associated to a

The ideal structure of the $C\sp *$-algebras of infinite graphs

We classify the gauge-invariant ideals in the C*-algebras of infinite directed graphs, and describe the quotients as graph algebras. We then use these results to identify the gauge-invariant


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 a

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

KMS states on C^*-algebras associated with self-similar sets

In this paper, we study KMS states for the gauge actions on C${}^*$-algebras associated with self-similar sets whose branch points are finite. If the self-similar set does not contain any branch
