##### Title

Suspensions of graphs, and C*-algebras.

##### Speaker

Senior Professor Aidan Sims (University of Wollongong)

##### Abstract

The suspension of the 1-sided shift space X associated to a graph E is the quotient of X \times [0,\infty) in which (x, 1) is glued to (\sigma(x), 0). Each positive real number l induces a transformation of SX by translation in the second coordinate. When l = 1, this dynamics encodes the original shift \sigma. Constructing C*-algebras that encode these transformations is difficult because they are not open maps. I’ll describe an approach based on realising the dynamics induced by l in terms of a topological quiver constructed from E, and explain why the result agrees quite well with what we’d might expect from a symbolic-dynamics point of view for rational values of l.
