K-theory for the $C^*-$algebra of the continuous functions on the $2-$torus and the Bott projection

I am trying to understand the K-theory for the $C^*-$algebra of the continuous functions on the $2-$dimensional torus $T^2$. In particular I am interested on the $K_0-$group. I have read that the ...

Generators of the $ K_{0} $-group of the non-commutative torus $ A_{\theta} $ with $ \theta \in \mathbb{Q} $ (i.e. rational rotation algebra)

I am studying the non-commutative torus $ A_{\theta} $. When $ \theta $ is irrational, $ {K_{0}}(A_{\theta}) $ is generated by $ [1] $ and $ [p_{\theta}] $. (Note: $ p_{\theta} $ is a projection in ...

Do quotients of amenable groups C*-algebras satisfy the UCT?

Let G be a discrete amenable group. General Question: Let $J$ be an ideal of $C^*(G)$, the group C*-algebra of $G.$ Does $C^*(G)/J$ satisfy the universal coefficient theorem (UCT)? I am mainly ...

A noncommutative vector bundle

We know that a noncommutative vector bundle is a finitely generated projective $A$-module where $A$ is a non commutative $C^{*}$ algebra. In this question we introduce a particular non commutative ...

Dense ideals in C*-algebras and K-theory

Let $A$ be a nonunital C*-algebra and let $I \subset A$ be a dense, $*$-closed, 2-sided ideal. I was under the impression that there existed some "obvious" argument proving that $I$ carries all the ...

A Question About the Elliott-Natsume-Nest Proof of Bott Periodicity

In Wegge-Olsen’s book K-Theory and C$ ^{*} $-Algebras, there is an outline of a proof of Bott Periodicity (the proof is due to George Elliott, Toshikazu Natsume and Ryszard Nest). The first step of ...

Shapiro's Lemma for topological K-theory of groups

Chabert, Echterhoff and Oyono-Oyono proved in [Shapiro's Lemma for topological K-theory of groups] that $K^{top}_*(X\rtimes G;A)\cong K^{top}_*(G;A)$ for any $X\rtimes G$-algebra $A$. They claimed ...

K-Exactness for groups and C*-algebras

We say that a C*-algebra $A$ is K-exact, if for any exact sequence of C*-algebras $0\rightarrow I\rightarrow B\rightarrow B/I\rightarrow0$, the sequences $K_i(I\otimes_{min}A)\rightarrow ...

Replacing commutative C*-algebras by simple ones

I am looking for functorial ways of replacing a commutative $C^*$-algebra $C$ by a simple one, say $A$ , such that the $K$-theory remains unchanged, i.e. $K_*(C) \cong K_*(A)$. I am particularly ...

Lifting triangles in K-theory to KL-groups

Let $X$ and $Y$ be finite simplicial complexes (or $CW$-complexes) so that $Y\subseteq X$. Let $s\colon C(X)\to C(Y)$ be the map given by restriction. In particular $K_{*}(C(X))$ and $K_{*}(C(Y))$ are ...

Does the suspension isomorphism $K_1(A) \to K_0(SA)$ descend from a more refined invariant?

If $A$ is a C*-algebra, denote its minimal unitization by $\tilde A$ and its suspension by $SA$, thought of as all continuous $a:[0,1] \to A$ with $a(0)=a(1)=0$. The unitized suspension ...

Inner automorphisms and $K$-theory

It is known that any inner automorphism of a unital $C^{\ast}$-algebra $A$ induces the identity map on $K_{0}(A)$ because unitary equivalence implies Murray-von Neumann equivalence. What is known ...
