We analyse extensions $\Sigma$ of groupoids G by bundles A of abelian groups. We describe a pushout construction for such extensions, and use it to describe the extension group of a given groupoid G by a given bundle A. There is a natural action of Sigma on the dual of A, yielding a corresponding transformation groupoid. The pushout of this transformation groupoid by the natural map from the fibre product of A with its dual to the Cartesian product of the dual with the circle is a twist over…

Properties Preserved by Groupoid Equivalence

. We show that groupoid equivalence preserves a number of groupoid properties such as properness or the property of being topologically principal.



The Dixmier-Douady classes of certain groupoid C∗-algebras with continuous trace

Given a locally compact abelian group G, we give an explicit formula for the Dixmier-Douady invariant of the C∗-algebra of the groupoid extension associated to a Cech 2-cocycle in the sheaf of germs

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

According to J. Feldman and C. Moore's well- known theorem on Cartan subalgebras, a variant of the group measure space construction gives an equivalence of categories between twisted countable

Amenability for Fell bundles over groupoids

We establish conditions under which the universal and reduced norms coincide for a Fell bundle over a groupoid. Specifically, we prove that the full and reduced C � -algebras of any Fell bundle over


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

Preface. The impetus for this study arose from the belief that the structure of a C*-algebra is illuminated by an understanding of the manner in which abelian subalgebras embed in it. Posed in its

Groupoid Cohomology and the Dixmier‐Douady Class

Suppose A is a continuous-trace C*-algebra with spectrum A. (Throughout, unless otherwise stated, all C*-algebras will be assumed to be separable and all topological spaces and groupoids will be

Remarks on the Ideal Structure of Fell Bundle C*-Algebras

We show that if $p:\B\to G$ is a Fell bundle over a locally compact groupoid $G$ and that $A=\Gamma_{0}(G^{(0)};\B)$ is the \cs-algebra sitting over $G^{(0)}$, then there is a continuous $G$-action
