Erik Bedos (UiO) will give a talk with title "On Exel-Pardo algebras as Cuntz-Pimsner algebras"

Abstract:

In a joint work with S. Kaliszweski and J. Quigg (https://arxiv.org/pdf/1512.07302.pdf, to appear in JOT), we consider a continuous action of a locally compact group G on a topological graph E, equipped with a G-valued continuous cocycle, and show how to construct a C*-correspondence from these data, giving rise to a Toeplitz algebra and a Cuntz-Pimsner algebra. In the talk we will sketch this construction, but restrict ourselves to the discrete case. We will also describe these algebras in terms of generators and relations when E is row-finite. As a corollary we get that the associated Cuntz-Pimsner algebra coincides with the C*-algebra recently introduced by Exel and Pardo when E is finite and sourceless.
