Classification of Simple Tracially AF $C^*$-Algebras
We prove that pre-classifiable (see 3.1) simple nuclear tracially AF \CA s (TAF) are classified by their $K$-theory. As a consequence all simple, locally AH and TAF \CA s are in fact AH algebras (it is known that there are locally AH algebras that are not AH). We also prove the following Rationalization Theorem. Let $A$ and $B$ be two unital separable nuclear simple TAF \CA s with unique normalized traces satisfying the Universal Coefficient Theorem. If $A$ and $B$ have the same (ordered and scaled) $K$-theory and $K_0 (A)_+$ is locally finitely generated, then $A \otimes Q \cong B \otimes Q$, where $Q$ is the UHF-algebra with the rational $K_0$. Classification results (with restriction on $K_0$-theory) for the above \CA s are also obtained. For example, we show that, if $A$ and $B$ are unital nuclear separable simple TAF \CA s with the unique normalized trace satisfying the UCT and with $K_1(A) = K_1(B)$, and $A$ and $B$ have the same rational (scaled ordered) $K_0$, then $A \cong B$. Similar results are also obtained for some cases in which $K_0$ is non-divisible such as $K_0(A) = \mathbf{Z} [1/2]$.

Tensor Algebras, Induced Representations, and the Wold Decomposition
Our objective in this sequel to \cite{MSp96a} is to develop extensions, to representations of tensor algebras over $C^{*}$-correspondences, of two fundamental facts about isometries on Hilbert space: The Wold decomposition theorem and Beurling's theorem, and to apply these to the analysis of the invariant subspace structure of certain subalgebras of Cuntz-Krieger algebras.

Keywords:tensor algebras, correspondence, induced representation, Wold decomposition, Beurling's theorem

Purely infinite, simple $C^\ast$-algebras arising from free product constructions
Examples of simple, separable, unital, purely infinite $C^\ast$-algebras are constructed, including: \item{(1)} some that are not approximately divisible; \item{(2)} those that arise as crossed products of any of a certain class of $C^\ast$-algebras by any of a certain class of non-unital endomorphisms; \item{(3)} those that arise as reduced free products of pairs of $C^\ast$-algebras with respect to any from a certain class of states.

Factorization in the invertible group of a $C^*$-algebra
In this paper we consider the following problem: Given a unital \cs\ $A$ and a collection of elements $S$ in the identity component of the invertible group of $A$, denoted \ino, characterize the group of finite products of elements of $S$. The particular $C^*$-algebras studied in this paper are either unital purely infinite simple or of the form \tenp, where $A$ is any \cs\ and $K$ is the compact operators on an infinite dimensional separable Hilbert space. The types of elements used in the factorizations are unipotents ($1+$ nilpotent), positive invertibles and symmetries ($s^2=1$). First we determine the groups of finite products for each collection of elements in \tenp. Then we give upper bounds on the number of factors needed in these cases. The main result, which uses results for \tenp, is that for $A$ unital purely infinite and simple, \ino\ is generated by each of these collections of elements.

Homomorphisms from $C(X)$ into $C^*$-algebras
Let $A$ be a simple $C^*$-algebra with real rank zero, stable rank one and weakly unperforated $K_0(A)$ of countable rank. We show that a monomorphism $\phi\colon C(S^2) \to A$ can be approximated pointwise by homomorphisms from $C(S^2)$ into $A$ with finite dimensional range if and only if certain index vanishes. In particular, we show that every homomorphism $\phi$ from $C(S^2)$ into a UHF-algebra can be approximated pointwise by homomorphisms from $C(S^2)$ into the UHF-algebra with finite dimensional range. As an application, we show that if $A$ is a simple $C^*$-algebra of real rank zero and is an inductive limit of matrices over $C(S^2)$ then $A$ is an AF-algebra. Similar results for tori are also obtained. Classification of ${\bf Hom}\bigl(C(X),A\bigr)$ for lower dimensional spaces is also studied.

Keywords:Homomorphism of $C(S^2)$, approximation, real, rank zero, classification
