Nicolai Stammeier (Münster): Product Systems of Finite Type for Certain Algebraic Dynamics and their C*-algebras
Nicolai Stammeier, Westfälische Wilhelms-Universität Münster, will give a talk with title: Product Systems of Finite Type for Certain Algebraic Dynamics and their C*-algebras
Abstract: Let P be a lattice-ordered semigroup with unit acting on a discrete, abelian group G by injective endomorphisms with finite cokernel. Building on the work of Jeong Hee Hong, Nadia S. Larsen and Wojciech Szymanski on product systems of Hilbert bimodules and their KMS-states, one can associate a product system to this dynamical system that turns out to be of finite type. Imposing two additional conditions on the dynamics, namely independence of the endomorphisms for relatively prime elements in P and exactness, we derive presentations of the Nica-Toeplitz algebra and the Cuntz-Nica-Pimsner algebra. Moreover, the latter has lots of nice descriptions and is shown to be a unital UCT Kirchberg algebra.
