John Quigg: Landstad duality and a theorem of Pedersen

John Quigg, Arizona State University at Tempe, USA, will give a talk with title: Landstad duality and a theorem of Pedersen


In joint work with Steve Kaliszewski and Tron Omland, we show how a theorem of Pedersen characterizing exterior equivalent actions on a C*-algebra can be parlayed into an equivalence between two equivariant categories of C*-algebras. In one category, isomorphisms correspond to outer conjugacies of actions, while isomorphisms in the other category are equivariant isomorphisms of the crossed products that respect the generalized fixed point algebras. This category equivalence is a variation of Landstad's original characterization of actions up to equivariant isomorphism, where we now allow more morphisms. Time permitting, we will compare our "outer duality" with Landstad duality and also with Imai-Takai crossed-product duality.
