Simplicity of twisted C*-algebras of Deaconu--Renault groupoids

  title={Simplicity of twisted C*-algebras of Deaconu--Renault groupoids},
  author={Becky Armstrong and Nathan Brownlowe and Aidan Sims},
We consider Deaconu–Renault groupoids associated to actions of finite-rank free abelian monoids by local homeomorphisms of locally compact Hausdorff spaces. We study simplicity of the twisted C*-algebra of such a groupoid determined by a continuous circle-valued groupoid 2-cocycle. When the groupoid is not minimal, this C*-algebra is never simple, so we focus on minimal groupoids. We describe an action of the quotient of the groupoid by the interior of its isotropy on the spectrum of the…

A uniqueness theorem for twisted groupoid C*-algebras
We present a uniqueness theorem for the reduced C*-algebra of a twist E over a Hausdorff étale groupoid G. We show that the interior IE of the isotropy of E is a twist over the interior IG of the
Conjugacy of local homeomorphisms via groupoids and C*-algebras
We investigate dynamical systems consisting of a locally compact Hausdorff space equipped with a partially defined local homeomorphism. Important examples of such systems include self-covering maps,


Simplicity of twisted C*-algebras of higher-rank graphs and crossed products by quasifree actions
We characterise simplicity of twisted C*-algebras of row-finite k-graphs with no sources. We show that each 2-cocycle on a cofinal k-graph determines a canonical second-cohomology class for the
Reconstruction of groupoids and C*-rigidity of dynamical systems
We show how to construct a graded locally compact Hausdorff \'etale groupoid from a C*-algebra carrying a coaction of a discrete group, together with a suitable abelian subalgebra. We call this

In a recent series of papers, Kumjian, Pask and Sims [2–5] have investigated the effect of ‘twisting’ C∗-algebras associated to higher-rank graphs using a categorical 2-cocycle on the graph. This
The Primitive Ideals of some Étale Groupoid C∗-Algebras
We consider the Deaconu–Renault groupoid of an action of a finitely generated free abelian monoid by local homeomorphisms of a locally compact Hausdorff space. We catalogue the primitive ideals of
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

On the K-theory of twisted higher-rank-graph C*-algebras
We investigate the K-theory of twisted higher-rank-graph algebras by adapting parts of Elliott's computation of the K-theory of the rotation algebras. We show that each 2-cocycle on a higher-rank
Groupoid Crossed Products
We present a number of findings concerning groupoid dynamical systems and groupoid crossed products. The primary result is an identification of the spectrum of the groupoid crossed product when the
On twisted higher-rank graph C*-algebras
We define the categorical cohomology of a k-graphand show that the first three terms in this cohomology are isomorphic to the corresponding terms in the cohomology defined in our previous paper. This
Groupoids associated with endomorphisms
To a compact Hausdorff space which covers itself, we associate an r-discrete locally compact Hausdorff groupoid. Its C*-algebra carries an action of the circle allowing it to be regarded as a crossed
