Homotopy Classification of Projections in the Corona Algebra of a Non-simple $C^*$-algebra We study projections in the corona algebra of $C(X)\otimes K$, where K
is the $C^*$-algebra of compact operators on a separable infinite
dimensional Hilbert space and $X=[0,1],[0,\infty),(-\infty,\infty)$,
or $[0,1]/\{ 0,1 \}$. Using BDF's essential codimension, we determine
conditions for a projection in the corona algebra to be liftable to a
projection in the multiplier algebra. We also determine the
conditions for two projections to be equal in $K_0$, Murray-von
Neumann equivalent, unitarily equivalent, or homotopic. In light of
these characterizations, we construct examples showing that the
equivalence notions above are all distinct.

Isometric Group Actions on Hilbert Spaces: Structure of Orbits Our main result is that a finitely generated nilpotent group has
no isometric action on an infinite-dimensional Hilbert space with
dense orbits. In contrast, we construct such an action with a
finitely generated metabelian group.
