A Leavitt path algebra associates to a directed graph a ℤ-graded algebra and in its simplest form it recovers the Leavitt algebra L(1, k). In this note, we first study this ℤ-grading and characterize the (ℤ-graded) structure of Leavitt path algebras, associated to finite acyclic graphs, Cn-comet, multi-headed graphs and a mixture of these graphs (i.e., polycephaly graphs). The last two types are examples of graphs whose Leavitt path algebras are strongly graded. We give a criterion when a…

This paper is an attempt to show that, parallel to Elliott’s classification of AF C*-algebras by means of K-theory, the graded K0-group classifies Leavitt path algebras completely. In this direction,

Connections between Abelian sandpile models and the $K$-theory of weighted Leavitt path algebras

. In our main result, we establish that any conical sandpile monoid M = SP( E ) of a directed sandpile graph E can be realised as the V -monoid of a weighted Leavitt path algebra L k ( F, w ) (where

The V-monoid of a weighted Leavitt path algebra

We compute the $V$-monoid of a weighted Leavitt path algebra of a row-finite weighted graph, correcting a wrong computation of the $V$-monoid that exists in the literature. Further we show that the

Epsilon-strongly graded Leavitt path algebras

Given a directed graph $E$ and a unital ring $R$ one can define the Leavitt path algebra with coefficients in $R$, denoted by $L_R(E)$. For an arbitrary group $G$, $L_R(E)$ can be viewed as a

Simplicity of Leavitt path algebras via graded ring theory

. Suppose that R is an associative unital ring and that E = ( E 0 , E 1 , r, s ) is a directed graph. Utilizing results from graded ring theory we show, that the associated Leavitt path algebra L R (

Algebras of one-sided subshifts over arbitrary alphabets

. We introduce two algebras associated with a subshift over an arbitrary alphabet. One is unital and the other not necessarily. We focus on the unital case and describe a conjugacy between

On the interaction between Leavitt path algebras and partial skew group rings

. Let E be a directed graph, K be a field, and F be the free group on the edges of E . In this work, we use the isomorphism between Leavitt path algebras and partial skew group rings to endow L K ( E



K-Theory of Azumaya Algebras

For an Azumaya algebra $A$ which is free over its centre $R$, we prove that the $K$-theory of $A$ is isomorphic to $K$-theory of $R$ up to its rank torsion. We observe that a graded central simple

A first course in noncommutative rings

This text, drawn from the author's lectures at the University of California at Berkeley, is intended as a textbook for a one-term course in basic ring theory. The material covered includes the

Locally finite Leavitt path algebras

A group-graded K-algebra A = ⊕g∈GAg is called locally finite in case each graded component Ag is finite dimensional over K. We characterize the graphs E for which the Leavitt path algebra LK(E) is

Group Gradings on Full Matrix Rings

We study G-gradings of the matrix ring Mn(k), k a field, and give a complete description of the gradings where all the elements ei, j are homogeneous, called good gradings. Among these, we determine
