Characterizations of operator BirkhoffJames orthogonality
In this paper, we obtain some characterizations of the (strong)
BirkhoffJames orthogonality for elements of Hilbert $C^*$modules
and certain elements of $\mathbb{B}(\mathscr{H})$.
Moreover, we obtain a kind of Pythagorean relation for bounded
linear operators.
In addition, for $T\in \mathbb{B}(\mathscr{H})$ we prove that if the
norm attaining
set $\mathbb{M}_T$ is a unit sphere of some finite dimensional
subspace $\mathscr{H}_0$ of $\mathscr{H}$ and $\T\_{{{\mathscr{H}}_0}^\perp}
\lt \T\$, then for every $S\in\mathbb{B}(\mathscr{H})$, $T$ is the strong
BirkhoffJames orthogonal to $S$ if and only if there exists
a unit vector $\xi\in {\mathscr{H}}_0$ such that $\T\\xi =
T\xi$ and $S^*T\xi = 0$.
Finally, we introduce a new type of approximate orthogonality
and investigate this notion in the setting of inner product $C^*$modules.

Reduction to dimension two of local spectrum for $AH$ algebra with ideal property
A $C^{*}$algebra $A$ has the ideal property if any ideal
$I$ of $A$ is generated as a closed two sided ideal by the projections
inside the ideal. Suppose that the limit $C^{*}$algebra $A$
of inductive limit of direct sums of matrix algebras over spaces
with uniformly bounded dimension has ideal property. In this
paper we will prove that $A$ can be written as an inductive limit
of certain very special subhomogeneous algebras, namely, direct
sum of dimension drop interval algebras and matrix algebras over
2dimensional spaces with torsion $H^{2}$ groups.

Condition $C'_{\wedge}$ of Operator Spaces
In this paper, we study condition $C'_{\wedge}$ which is a
projective tensor product analogue of condition $C'$. We show
that
the finitedimensional OLLP operator spaces have condition
$C'_{\wedge}$ and $M_{n}$ $(n\gt 2)$ does not have that property.

A Homological Property and Arens Regularity of Locally Compact Quantum Groups
We characterize two important notions of amenability and compactness
of
a locally compact quantum group ${\mathbb G}$ in terms of certain
homological
properties. For this, we show that ${\mathbb G}$ is character
amenable if and only if it is both amenable and coamenable.
We finally apply our results to
Arens regularity problems of the quantum group algebra
$L^1({\mathbb G})$; in particular, we improve an interesting result
by Hu, Neufang and Ruan.

Nilpotent Group C*algebras as Compact Quantum Metric Spaces
Let $\mathbb{L}$ be a length function on a group $G$, and let $M_\mathbb{L}$
denote the
operator of pointwise multiplication by $\mathbb{L}$ on $\lt(G)$.
Following Connes,
$M_\mathbb{L}$ can be used as a ``Dirac'' operator for the reduced
group C*algebra $C_r^*(G)$. It defines a
Lipschitz seminorm on $C_r^*(G)$, which defines a metric on the
state space of
$C_r^*(G)$. We show that
for any length function satisfying a strong form of polynomial
growth on a discrete group,
the topology from this metric
coincides with the
weak$*$ topology (a key property for the
definition of a ``compact quantum metric
space''). In particular, this holds for all wordlength functions
on finitely generated nilpotentbyfinite groups.

Perturbations of Von Neumann Subalgebras with Finite Index
In this paper, we study uniform perturbations of von Neumann
subalgebras of a von Neumann algebra.
Let $M$ and $N$ be von Neumann subalgebras of a von Neumann algebra
with finite probabilistic index in the sense of PimsnerPopa.
If $M$ and $N$ are sufficiently close,
then $M$ and $N$ are unitarily equivalent.
The implementing unitary can be chosen as being close to the
identity.

On Extensions of Stably Finite C*algebras (II)
For any $C^*$algebra $A$ with an approximate
unit of projections, there is a smallest ideal $I$ of $A$ such
that the quotient $A/I$ is stably finite.
In this paper, a sufficient and necessary condition is obtained
for an ideal of a $C^*$algebra with real rank zero is this smallest
ideal by $K$theory.

A Computation with the ConnesThom Isomorphism
Let $A \in M_{n}(\mathbb{R})$ be an invertible matrix. Consider
the semidirect product $\mathbb{R}^{n} \rtimes \mathbb{Z}$ where
the action of $\mathbb{Z}$ on $\mathbb{R}^{n}$ is induced by
the left multiplication by $A$. Let $(\alpha,\tau)$ be a strongly
continuous action of $\mathbb{R}^{n} \rtimes \mathbb{Z}$ on a
$C^{*}$algebra $B$ where $\alpha$ is a strongly continuous action
of $\mathbb{R}^{n}$ and $\tau$ is an automorphism. The map $\tau$
induces a map $\widetilde{\tau}$ on $B \rtimes_{\alpha} \mathbb{R}^{n}$.
We show that, at the $K$theory level, $\tau$ commutes with the
ConnesThom map if $\det(A)\gt 0$ and anticommutes if $\det(A)\lt 0$.
As an application, we recompute the $K$groups of the CuntzLi
algebra associated to an integer dilation matrix.

Faithful Representations of Graph Algebras via Branching Systems
We continue to investigate branching systems of directed graphs
and their connections with graph algebras. We give a sufficient
condition under which the representation induced from a branching
system of a directed graph is faithful and construct a large
class of branching systems that satisfy this condition. We finish
the paper by providing a proof of the converse of the CuntzKrieger
uniqueness theorem for graph algebras by means of branching systems.

On the Structure of Cuntz Semigroups in (Possibly) Nonunital C*algebras
We examine the ranks of operators in semifinite $\mathrm{C}^*$algebras
as measured by their densely defined lower semicontinuous traces.
We first prove that a unital simple $\mathrm{C}^*$algebra whose
extreme tracial boundary is nonempty and finite contains positive
operators of every possible rank, independent of the property
of strict comparison. We then turn to nonunital simple algebras
and establish criteria that imply that the Cuntz semigroup is
recovered functorially from the Murrayvon Neumann semigroup
and the space of densely defined lower semicontinuous traces.
Finally, we prove that these criteria are satisfied by notnecessarilyunital
approximately subhomogeneous algebras of slow dimension growth.
Combined with results of the firstnamed author, this shows that
slow dimension growth coincides with $\mathcal Z$stability,
for approximately subhomogeneous algebras.

A Short Note on the Continuous Rokhlin Property and the Universal Coefficient Theorem in $E$Theory
Let $G$ be a metrizable compact group, $A$ a separable $\mathrm{C}^*$algebra
and $\alpha\colon G\to\operatorname{Aut}(A)$ a strongly continuous action.
Provided that $\alpha$ satisfies the continuous Rokhlin property,
we show that the property of satisfying the UCT in $E$theory
passes from $A$ to the crossed product $\mathrm{C}^*$algebra $A\rtimes_\alpha
G$ and the fixed point algebra $A^\alpha$. This extends a similar
result by Gardella for $KK$theory in the case of unital
$\mathrm{C}^*$algebras,
but with a shorter and less technical proof. For circle actions
on separable, unital $\mathrm{C}^*$algebras with the continuous Rokhlin
property, we establish a connection between the $E$theory equivalence
class of $A$ and that of its fixed point algebra $A^\alpha$.

Spectral Flows of Dilations of Fredholm Operators
Given an essentially unitary contraction and an arbitrary unitary
dilation of it, there is a naturally associated spectral flow which is
shown to be equal to the index of the operator. This result is
interpreted in terms of the $K$theory of an associated mapping
cone. It is then extended to connect $\mathbb{Z}_2$ indices of odd symmetric
Fredholm operators to a $\mathbb{Z}_2$valued spectral flow.

with $\det (u(x))=1$ for all $x\in X$ and $u\sim_h 1$ such that the
$\mathrm{C}^*$ exponential length of $u$
(denoted by $cel(u)$) can not be controlled by
$\pi$. Moreover, in simple inductive limit $\mathrm{C}^*$algebras,
similar examples also exist.

Exact and Approximate Operator Parallelism
Extending the notion of parallelism we introduce the concept of
approximate parallelism in normed spaces and then substantially
restrict ourselves to the setting of Hilbert space operators endowed
with the operator norm. We present several characterizations of the
exact and approximate operator parallelism in the algebra
$\mathbb{B}(\mathscr{H})$ of bounded linear operators acting on a
Hilbert space $\mathscr{H}$. Among other things, we investigate the
relationship between approximate parallelism and norm of inner
derivations on $\mathbb{B}(\mathscr{H})$. We also characterize the
parallel elements of a $C^*$algebra by using states. Finally we
utilize the linking algebra to give some equivalence assertions
regarding parallel elements in a Hilbert $C^*$module.

Strong Asymptotic Freeness for Free Orthogonal Quantum Groups
It is known that the normalized standard generators of the free
orthogonal quantum group $O_N^+$ converge in distribution to a free
semicircular system as $N \to \infty$. In this note, we
substantially improve this convergence result by proving that, in
addition to distributional convergence, the operator norm of any
noncommutative polynomial in the normalized standard generators of
$O_N^+$ converges as $N \to \infty$ to the operator norm of the
corresponding noncommutative polynomial in a standard free
semicircular system. Analogous strong convergence results are obtained
for the generators of free unitary quantum groups. As applications of
these results, we obtain a matrixcoefficient version of our strong
convergence theorem, and we recover a well known $L^2$$L^\infty$ norm
equivalence for noncommutative polynomials in free semicircular
systems.

Property T and Amenable Transformation Group $C^*$algebras
It is well known that a discrete group which is both amenable and
has Kazhdan's Property T must be finite. In this note we generalize
the above statement to the case of transformation groups. We show
that if $G$ is a discrete amenable group acting on a compact
Hausdorff space $X$, then the transformation group $C^*$algebra
$C^*(X, G)$ has Property T if and only if both $X$ and $G$ are finite. Our
approach does not rely on the use of tracial states on $C^*(X, G)$.

Compact Operators in Regular LCQ Groups
We show that a regular locally compact quantum group $\mathbb{G}$ is discrete
if and only if $\mathcal{L}^{\infty}(\mathbb{G})$ contains nonzero compact operators on

As a corollary we classify all discrete quantum groups among
regular locally compact quantum groups $\mathbb{G}$ where
$\mathcal{L}^{1}(\mathbb{G})$ has the RadonNikodym property.

Compact Subsets of the Glimm Space of a $C^*$algebra
If $A$ is a $\sigma$unital $C^*$algebra and $a$ is a strictly positive element of $A$ then for every compact subset $K$ of the complete
regularization $\mathrm{Glimm}(A)$ of $\mathrm{Prim}(A)$ there exists
$\alpha \gt 0$ such that $K\subset \{G\in \mathrm{Glimm}(A) \mid \Vert a + G\Vert \geq
\alpha\}$. This extends
a result of J. Dauns
to all $\sigma$unital $C^*$algebras. However, there are a $C^*$algebra $A$
and a compact subset of $\mathrm{Glimm}(A)$ that is not contained in any set of the form $\{G\in \mathrm{Glimm}(A) \mid \Vert a + G\Vert \geq
\alpha\}$, $a\in A$ and $\alpha \gt 0$.

On Constructing Ergodic Hyperfinite Equivalence Relations of NonProduct Type
Product type equivalence relations are hyperfinite measured
equivalence relations, which, up to orbit equivalence, are generated
by product type odometer actions. We give a concrete example of a
hyperfinite equivalence relation of nonproduct type, which is the
tail equivalence on a Bratteli diagram.
In order to show that the equivalence relation constructed is not of
product type we will use a criterion called property A. This
property, introduced by Krieger for nonsingular transformations, is
defined directly for hyperfinite equivalence relations in this paper.

Norm One Idempotent $cb$Multipliers with Applications to the Fourier Algebra in the $cb$Multiplier Norm
For a locally compact group $G$, let $A(G)$ be its Fourier algebra, let $M_{cb}A(G)$ denote the completely
bounded multipliers of $A(G)$, and let $A_{\mathit{Mcb}}(G)$ stand for the closure of $A(G)$ in $M_{cb}A(G)$. We
characterize the norm one idempotents in $M_{cb}A(G)$: the indicator function of a set $E \subset G$ is a norm
one idempotent in $M_{cb}A(G)$ if and only if $E$ is a coset of an open subgroup of $G$. As applications, we
describe the closed ideals of $A_{\mathit{Mcb}}(G)$ with an approximate identity bounded by $1$, and we characterize
those $G$ for which $A_{\mathit{Mcb}}(G)$ is $1$amenable in the sense of B. E. Johnson. (We can even slightly
relax the norm bounds.)
