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 necessary and sufficient for the associated $C^*$-algebra to have topological dimension zero. We prove that a purely infinite $2$-graph algebra has real-rank zero if and only if it has topological dimension zero and satisfies a homological condition that can be characterised in terms of the adjacency… 

Unbounded quasitraces, stable finiteness and pure infiniteness

We prove that if A is a \sigma-unital exact C*-algebra of real rank zero, then every state on K_0(A) is induced by a 2-quasitrace on A. This yields a generalisation of Rainone's work on pure

Ideal structure and pure infiniteness of ample groupoid $C^{\ast }$ -algebras

In this paper, we study the ideal structure of reduced $C^{\ast }$ -algebras $C_{r}^{\ast }(G)$ associated to étale groupoids $G$ . In particular, we characterize when there is a one-to-one

Homotopy of product systems and K-theory of Cuntz-Nica-Pimsner algebras

We introduce the notion of a homotopy of product systems, and show that the Cuntz-Nica-Pimsner algebras of homotopic product systems over N^k have isomorphic K-theory. As an application, we give a

Purely infinite labeled graph $C^{\ast }$ -algebras

In this paper, we consider pure infiniteness of generalized Cuntz–Krieger algebras associated to labeled spaces $(E,{\mathcal{L}},{\mathcal{E}})$ . It is shown that a $C^{\ast }$ -algebra $C^{\ast

Ideals of Steinberg algebras of strongly effective groupoids, with applications to Leavitt path algebras

We consider the ideal structure of Steinberg algebras over a commutative ring with identity. We focus on Hausdorff groupoids that are strongly effective in the sense that their reductions to closed



Graph C*-Algebras with Real Rank Zero

Given a row-finite directed graph E, a universal C*-algebra C*(E) generated by a family of partial isometries and projections subject to the relations determined by E is associated to the graph E.

Stable rank and real rank of graph C*-algebras

For a row finite directed graph E, Kumjian, Pask, and Raeburn proved that there exists a universal C*-algebra C* (E) generated by a Cuntz-Krieger E-family. In this paper we consider two density

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


Abstract We consider the higher-rank graphs introduced by Kumjian and Pask as models for higher-rank Cuntz–Krieger algebras. We describe a variant of the Cuntz–Krieger relations which applies to

$C^*$-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.

Nuclear dimension and Z-stability of non-simple C*-algebras

We investigate the interplay of the following regularity properties for non-simple C*-algebras: finite nuclear dimension, Z-stability, and algebraic regularity in the Cuntz semigroup. We show that

Purely infinite C*-algebras of real rank zero

Abstract We show that a separable purely infinite C*-algebra is of real rank zero if and only if its primitive ideal space has a basis consisting of compact-open sets and the natural map K 0(I) → K

Permanence properties for crossed products and fixed point algebras of finite groups

For an action of a finite group on a C*-algebra, we present some conditions under which properties of the C*-algebra pass to the crossed product or the fixed point algebra. We mostly consider the
