Directed graphs and k-graphs: topology of the path space and how it manifests in the associated C*- algebra

Directed graphs and their higher-rank analogues provide an intuitive frame-work for the analysis of a broad class of C ∗ -algebras which we call graph algebras. Kumjian, Pask, Raeburn and Renault

Remarks on some fundamental results about higher-rank graphs and their C*-algebras

Abstract Results of Fowler and Sims show that every k-graph is completely determined by its k-coloured skeleton and collection of commuting squares. Here we give an explicit description of the

A family of 2-graphs arising from two-dimensional subshifts

Abstract Higher-rank graphs (or k-graphs) were introduced by Kumjian and Pask to provide combinatorial models for the higher-rank Cuntz–Krieger C*-algebras of Robertson and Steger. Here we consider a

$C^*$-algebras associated to coverings of $k$-graphs

This work shows how to realise a direct limit of k-graph algebras under embeddings induced from coverings as the universal algebra of a (k+1-graph) whose universal algebra encodes this embedding.

Real rank and topological dimension of higher rank graph algebras

We study dimension theory for the $C^*$-algebras of row-finite $k$-graphs with no sources. We establish that strong aperiodicity - the higher-rank analogue of condition (K) - for a $k$-graph is

Endomorphisms and Modular Theory of 2-Graph C*-Algebras

In this paper, we initiate the study of endomorphisms and modular theory of the graph C*-algebras $\O_{\theta}$of a 2-graph $\Fth$ on a single vertex. We prove that there is a semigroup isomorphism


Abstract Consider a projective limit G of finite groups Gn. Fix a compatible family δn of coactions of the Gn on a C*-algebra A. From this data we obtain a coaction δ of G on A. We show that the

Dense subalgebras of purely infinite simple groupoid C*-algebras

Abstract A simple Steinberg algebra associated to an ample Hausdorff groupoid G is algebraically purely infinite if and only if the characteristic functions of compact open subsets of the unit space

Twisted k-Graph Algebras Associated to Bratteli Diagrams

Given a system of coverings of k-graphs, we show that the second cohomology of the resulting (k + 1)-graph is isomorphic to that of any one of the k-graphs in the system, and compute the semifinite



On the classification of C*-algebras of real rank zero.

A classification is given of certain separable nuclear C*-algebras of real rank zero and stable rank one. Theses termes refer to density of the invertible elements within the sets of selfadjoint


NSKI Abstract. We prove versions of the fundamental theorems about Cuntz-Krieger algebras for the C -algebras of row-finite graphs: directed graphs in which each vertex emits at most finitely many

Entropy of shifts on higher-rank graph C*-algebras

Let O_{Lambda} be a higher rank graph C*-algebra of rank r. For every tuple p of non-negative integers there is a canonical completely positive map Phi^p on O_{Lambda} and a subshift T^p on the path

On the K-theory of higher rank graph C ∗ -algebras

Given a row-finite k-graph Λ with no sources we investigate the K-theory of the higher rank graph C ∗ -algebra, C ∗ (Λ). When k = 2 we are able to give explicit formulae to calculate the K-groups of

C∗-algebras associated with irrational rotations

For any irrational number a let Aa be the transformation group C*-algebra for the action of the integers on the circle by powers of the rotation by angle 2πa. It is known that Aa is simple and has a

The range of K-invariants for C*-algebras of infinite graphs

It is shown that for any pair (K 0 ,K 1 ) of countable abelian groups, with K 1 free abelian, and any element Ξ ∈ K 0 there exists a purely infinite and simple, stable C * -algebra C * (E)


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

Classification of Nuclear, Simple C*-algebras

The possibility that nuclear (or amenable) C*-algebras should be classified up to isomorphism by their K-theory and related invariants was raised in an article by Elliott [48] (written in 1989) in

Graphs, Groupoids, and Cuntz–Krieger Algebras
