A Computation with the Connes-Thom Isomorphism
Let $A \in M_{n}(\mathbb{R})$ be an invertible matrix. Consider the semi-direct 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 Connes-Thom map if $\det(A)\gt 0$ and anticommutes if $\det(A)\lt 0$. As an application, we recompute the $K$-groups of the Cuntz-Li algebra associated to an integer dilation matrix.
