On the Structure of Cuntz Semigroups in (Possibly) Nonunital C*-algebras
We examine the ranks of operators in semi-finite $\mathrm{C}^*$-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 Murray-von Neumann semigroup and the space of densely defined lower semicontinuous traces. Finally, we prove that these criteria are satisfied by not-necessarily-unital approximately subhomogeneous algebras of slow dimension growth. Combined with results of the first-named author, this shows that slow dimension growth coincides with $\mathcal Z$-stability, for approximately subhomogeneous algebras.

AF-Skeletons and Real Rank Zero Algebras with the Corona Factorization Property
Let $A$ be a stable, separable, real rank zero $C^{*}$-algebra, and suppose that $A$ has an AF-skeleton with only finitely many extreme traces. Then the corona algebra ${\mathcal M}(A)/A$ is purely infinite in the sense of Kirchberg and R\o rdam, which implies that $A$ has the corona factorization property.
