Abstract

Using ideas of S. Wassermann on non-exact $C^*$-algebras and property T groups, we show that one of his examples of non-invertible $C^*$-extensions is not semi-invertible. To prove this, we show that a certain element vanishes in the asymptotic tensor product. We also show that a modification of the example gives a $C^*$-extension which is not even invertible up to homotopy.
Keywords: $C^*$-algebra extension, property T group, asymptotic tensor $C^*$-norm, homotopy $C^*$-algebra extension, property T group, asymptotic tensor $C^*$-norm, homotopy
