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… Expand

Induced quotient group gradings of epsilon-strongly graded rings
Let $G$ be a group and let $S=\bigoplus_{g \in G} S_g$ be a $G$-graded ring. Given a normal subgroup $N$ of $G$, there is a naturally induced $G/N$-grading of $S$. It is well-known that if $S$ isExpand
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 aExpand
On graded irreducible representations of Leavitt path algebras
Using the E-algebraic systems, various graded irreducible representations of a Leavitt path algebra L of a graph E over a field K are constructed. The concept of a Laurent vertex is introduced and itExpand
A Note on Invariant Basis Number and Types for Strongly Graded Rings
Given any pair of positive integers (n, k) and any nontrivial finite group G, we show that there exists a ring R of type (n, k) such that R is strongly graded by G and the identity component Re hasExpand
Irreducible representations of Leavitt algebras
For a weighted graph $E$, we construct representation graphs $F$, and consequently, $L_K(E)$-modules $V_F$, where $L_K(E)$ is the Leavitt path algebra associated to $E$, with coefficients in a fieldExpand
Prime group graded rings with applications to partial crossed products and Leavitt path algebras
In this article we generalize a classical result by Passman on primeness of unital strongly group graded rings to the class of nearly epsilon-strongly group graded rings which are not necessarilyExpand
Properties of the gradings on ultragraph algebras via the underlying combinatorics
There are two established gradings on Leavitt path algebras associated with ultragraphs, namely the grading by the integers group and the grading by the free group on the edges. In this paper, weExpand
Simple modules for Kumjian-Pask algebras
The paper introduces the notion of a representation k-graph (∆, α) for a given k-graph Λ. It is shown that any representation k-graph for Λ yields a module for the Kumjian-Pask algebra KP(Λ), and theExpand
Weighted Leavitt path algebras -- an overview
Weighted Leavitt path algebras were introduced in 2013 by Roozbeh Hazrat. These algebras generalise simultaneously the usual Leavitt path algebras and William Leavitt’s algebras L(m,n). In this paperExpand
A Survey of Some of the Recent Developments in Leavitt Path Algebras
In this survey article, we describe some of recent ring-theoretic and module-theoretic investigations of a Leavitt path algebra L of an arbitrary directed graph E over a field K. It is shown how aExpand


The center of a Leavitt path algebra
In this paper the center of a Leavitt path algebra is computed for a wide range of situations. A basis as a K-vector space is found for Z(L(E)) when L(E) enjoys some finiteness condition such asExpand
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 simpleExpand
Leavitt path algebras of separated graphs
Abstract The construction of the Leavitt path algebra associated to a directed graph E is extended to incorporate a family C consisting of partitions of the sets of edges emanating from the verticesExpand
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) isExpand
Finite-dimensional Leavitt path algebras
Abstract We classify the directed graphs E for which the Leavitt path algebra L ( E ) is finite dimensional. In our main results we provide two distinct classes of connected graphs from which, moduloExpand

The classification question for Leavitt path algebras
We prove an algebraic version of the Gauge-Invariant Uniqueness Theorem, a result which gives information about the injectivity of certain homomorphisms between ${\mathbb Z}$-graded algebras. As ourExpand
Isomorphisms between Leavitt algebras and their matrix rings
Abstract Let K be any field, let Ln denote the Leavitt algebra of type (1,n – 1) having coefficients in K, and let M d (Ln ) denote the ring of d × d matrices over Ln . In our main result, we showExpand
Stable rank of Leavitt path algebras

Abstract We prove Leavitt path algebra versions of the two uniqueness theorems of graph C ∗ -algebras. We use these uniqueness theorems to analyze the ideal structure of Leavitt path algebras andExpand
