Sam Walters - K-theory of non commutative spheres arising from the Fourier automorphism

K-theory of non commutative spheres arising from the Fourier automorphism


It is shown that for a dense $G_\delta$ set of the real number $\theta$(containing the rationals) there is an isomorphism $K_0(A_\theta\rtimes_\sigma\Bbb Z_4)\cong\Bbb Z^9$, where $A_\theta$is the rotation $C^\ast$-algebra generated by unitaries U,V satisfying $VU=e^{2\pi i\theta}UV$ and $\sigma$ is the Fourier automorphism given by $\sigma(U)=V$, $\sigma(V)=U^{-1}$. More precisely, a basis consisting of nine canonical modules is explicitly given. It is also shown that for a dense $G_\delta$ one has $K_1(A_\theta\rtimes_\sigma\Bbb Z_4)=0$.
