The Operator Biprojectivity of the Fourier Algebra
In this paper, we investigate projectivity in the category of operator spaces. In particular, we show that the Fourier algebra of a locally compact group $G$ is operator biprojective if and only if $G$ is discrete.

Cuntz Algebra States Defined by Implementers of Endomorphisms of the $\CAR$ Algebra
We investigate representations of the Cuntz algebra $\mathcal{O}_2$ on antisymmetric Fock space $F_a (\mathcal{K}_1)$ defined by isometric implementers of certain quasi-free endomorphisms of the CAR algebra in pure quasi-free states $\varphi_{P_1}$. We pay corresponding to these representations and the Fock special attention to the vector states on $\mathcal{O}_2$ vacuum, for which we obtain explicit formulae. Restricting these states to the gauge-invariant subalgebra $\mathcal{F}_2$, we find that for natural choices of implementers, they are again pure quasi-free and are, in fact, essentially the states $\varphi_{P_1}$. We proceed to consider the case for an arbitrary pair of implementers, and deduce that these Cuntz algebra representations are irreducible, as are their restrictions to $\mathcal{F}_2$. The endomorphisms of $B \bigl( F_a (\mathcal{K}_1) \bigr)$ associated with these representations of $\mathcal{O}_2$ are also considered.

Frames and Single Wavelets for Unitary Groups
We consider a unitary representation of a discrete countable abelian group on a separable Hilbert space which is associated to a cyclic generalized frame multiresolution analysis. We extend Robertson's theorem to apply to frames generated by the action of the group. Within this setup we use Stone's theorem and the theory of projection valued measures to analyze wandering frame collections. This yields a functional analytic method of constructing a wavelet from a generalized frame multi\-resolution analysis in terms of the frame scaling vectors. We then explicitly apply our results to the action of the integers given by translations on $L^2({\mathbb R})$.

Convergence Factors and Compactness in Weighted Convolution Algebras
We study convergence in weighted convolution algebras $L^1(\omega)$ on $R^+$, with the weights chosen such that the corresponding weighted space $M(\omega)$ of measures is also a Banach algebra and is the dual space of a natural related space of continuous functions. We determine convergence factor $\eta$ for which weak$^\ast$-convergence of $\{\lambda_n\}$ to $\lambda$ in $M(\omega)$ implies norm convergence of $\lambda_n \ast f$ to $\lambda \ast f$ in $L^1 (\omega\eta)$. We find necessary and sufficent conditions which depend on $\omega$ and $f$ and also find necessary and sufficent conditions for $\eta$ to be a convergence factor for all $L^1(\omega)$ and all $f$ in $L^1(\omega)$. We also give some applications to the structure of weighted convolution algebras. As a preliminary result we observe that $\eta$ is a convergence factor for $\omega$ and $f$ if and only if convolution by $f$ is a compact operator from $M(\omega)$ (or $L^1(\omega)$) to $L^1 (\omega\eta)$.

On the Classification of Simple Stably Projectionless $\C^*$-Algebras
It is shown that simple stably projectionless $\C^S*$-algebras which are inductive limits of certain specified building blocks with trivial $\K$-theory are classified by their cone of positive traces with distinguished subset. This is the first example of an isomorphism theorem verifying the conjecture of Elliott for a subclass of the stably projectionless algebras.

Classification of Certain Simple $C^*$-Algebras with Torsion in $K_1$
We show that the Elliott invariant is a classifying invariant for the class of $C^*$-algebras that are simple unital infinite dimensional inductive limits of finite direct sums of building blocks of the form $$ \{f \in C(\T) \otimes M_n : f(x_i) \in M_{d_i}, i = 1,2,\dots,N\}, $$ where $x_1,x_2,\dots,x_N \in \T$, $d_1,d_2,\dots,d_N$ are integers dividing $n$, and $M_{d_i}$ is embedded unitally into $M_n$. Furthermore we prove existence and uniqueness theorems for $*$-homomorphisms between such algebras and we identify the range of the invariant.

Ranks of Algebras of Continuous $C^*$-Algebra Valued Functions
We prove a number of results about the stable and particularly the real ranks of tensor products of \ca s under the assumption that one of the factors is commutative. In particular, we prove the following: {\raggedright \begin{enumerate}[(5)] \item[(1)] If $X$ is any locally compact $\sm$-compact Hausdorff space and $A$ is any \ca, then\break $\RR \bigl( C_0 (X) \otimes A \bigr) \leq \dim (X) + \RR(A)$. \item[(2)] If $X$ is any locally compact Hausdorff space and $A$ is any \pisca, then $\RR \bigl( C_0 (X) \otimes A \bigr) \leq 1$. \item[(3)] $\RR \bigl( C ([0,1]) \otimes A \bigr) \geq 1$ for any nonzero \ca\ $A$, and $\sr \bigl( C ([0,1]^2) \otimes A \bigr) \geq 2$ for any unital \ca\ $A$. \item[(4)] If $A$ is a unital \ca\ such that $\RR(A) = 0$, $\sr (A) = 1$, and $K_1 (A) = 0$, then\break $\sr \bigl( C ([0,1]) \otimes A \bigr) = 1$. \item[(5)] There is a simple separable unital nuclear \ca\ $A$ such that $\RR(A) = 1$ and\break $\sr \bigl( C ([0,1]) \otimes A \bigr) = 1$. \end{enumerate}}

The Complete $(L^p,L^p)$ Mapping Properties of Some Oscillatory Integrals in Several Dimensions
We prove that the operators $\int_{\mathbb{R}_+^2} e^{ix^a \cdot y^b} \varphi (x,y) f(y)\, dy$ map $L^p(\mathbb{R}^2)$ into itself for $p \in J =\bigl[\frac{a_l+b_l}{a_l+(\frac{b_l r}{2})},\frac{a_l+b_l} {a_l(1-\frac{r}{2})}\bigr]$ if $a_l,b_l\ge 1$ and $\varphi(x,y)=|x-y|^{-r}$, $0\le r <2$, the result is sharp. Generalizations to dimensions $d>2$ are indicated.

Asymptotic $K$-Theory for Groups Acting on $\tA_2$ Buildings
Let $\Gamma$ be a torsion free lattice in $G=\PGL(3, \mathbb{F})$ where $\mathbb{F}$ is a nonarchimedean local field. Then $\Gamma$ acts freely on the affine Bruhat-Tits building $\mathcal{B}$ of $G$ and there is an induced action on the boundary $\Omega$ of $\mathcal{B}$. The crossed product $C^*$-algebra $\mathcal{A}(\Gamma)=C(\Omega) \rtimes \Gamma$ depends only on $\Gamma$ and is classified by its $K$-theory. This article shows how to compute the $K$-theory of $\mathcal{A}(\Gamma)$ and of the larger class of rank two Cuntz-Krieger algebras.

Ideal Structure of Multiplier Algebras of Simple $C^*$-algebras With Real Rank Zero
We give a description of the monoid of Murray-von Neumann equivalence classes of projections for multiplier algebras of a wide class of $\sigma$-unital simple $C^\ast$-algebras $A$ with real rank zero and stable rank one. The lattice of ideals of this monoid, which is known to be crucial for understanding the ideal structure of the multiplier algebra $\mul$, is therefore analyzed. In important cases it is shown that, if $A$ has finite scale then the quotient of $\mul$ modulo any closed ideal $I$ that properly contains $A$ has stable rank one. The intricacy of the ideal structure of $\mul$ is reflected in the fact that $\mul$ can have uncountably many different quotients, each one having uncountably many closed ideals forming a chain with respect to inclusion.

Multi-Sided Braid Type Subfactors
We generalise the two-sided construction of examples of pairs of subfactors of the hyperfinite II$_1$ factor $R$ in [E1]---which arise by considering unitary braid representations with certain properties---to multi-sided pairs. We show that the index for the multi-sided pair can be expressed as a power of that for the two-sided pair. This construction can be applied to the natural examples---where the braid representations are obtained in connection with the representation theory of Lie algebras of types $A$, $B$, $C$, $D$. We also compute the (first) relative commutants.

K-Theory of Non-Commutative Spheres Arising from the Fourier Automorphism
For a dense $G_\delta$ set of real parameters $\theta$ in $[0,1]$ (containing the rationals) it is shown that the group $K_0 (A_\theta \rtimes_\sigma \mathbb{Z}_4)$ is isomorphic to $\mathbb{Z}^9$, where $A_\theta$ is the rotation C*-algebra generated by unitaries $U$, $V$ satisfying $VU = e^{2\pi i\theta} UV$ and $\sigma$ is the Fourier automorphism of $A_\theta$ defined by $\sigma(U) = V$, $\sigma(V) = U^{-1}$. More precisely, an explicit basis for $K_0$ consisting of nine canonical modules is given. (A slight generalization of this result is also obtained for certain separable continuous fields of unital C*-algebras over $[0,1]$.) The Connes Chern character $\ch \colon K_0 (A_\theta \rtimes_\sigma \mathbb{Z}_4) \to H^{\ev} (A_\theta \rtimes_\sigma \mathbb{Z}_4)^*$ is shown to be injective for a dense $G_\delta$ set of parameters $\theta$. The main computational tool in this paper is a group homomorphism $\vtr \colon K_0 (A_\theta \rtimes_\sigma \mathbb{Z}_4) \to \mathbb{R}^8 \times \mathbb{Z}$ obtained from the Connes Chern character by restricting the functionals in its codomain to a certain nine-dimensional subspace of $H^{\ev} (A_\theta \rtimes_\sigma \mathbb{Z}_4)$. The range of $\vtr$ is fully determined for each $\theta$. (We conjecture that this subspace is all of $H^{\ev}$.)

$R$-Diagonal Elements and Freeness With Amalgamation
The concept of $R$-diagonal element was introduced in \cite{NS2}, and was subsequently found to have applications to several problems in free probability. In this paper we describe a new approach to $R$-diagonality, which relies on freeness with amalgamation. The class of $R$-diagonal elements is enlarged to contain examples living in non-tracial $*$-probability spaces, such as the generalized circular elements of \cite{Sh1}.

Ext and OrderExt Classes of Certain Automorphisms of $C^*$-Algebras Arising from Cantor Minimal Systems
Giordano, Putnam and Skau showed that the transformation group $C^*$-algebra arising from a Cantor minimal system is an $AT$-algebra, and classified it by its $K$-theory. For approximately inner automorphisms that preserve $C(X)$, we will determine their classes in the Ext and OrderExt groups, and introduce a new invariant for the closure of the topological full group. We will also prove that every automorphism in the kernel of the homomorphism into the Ext group is homotopic to an inner automorphism, which extends Kishimoto's result.

A Continuous Field of Projectionless $C^*$-Algebras
We use some results about stable relations to show that some of the simple, stable, projectionless crossed products of $O_2$ by $\bR$ considered by Kishimoto and Kumjian are inductive limits of type I $C^*$-algebras. The type I $C^*$-algebras that arise are pullbacks of finite direct sums of matrix algebras over the continuous functions on the unit interval by finite dimensional $C^*$-algebras.

Classification of Simple Tracially AF $C^*$-Algebras
We prove that pre-classifiable (see 3.1) simple nuclear tracially AF \CA s (TAF) are classified by their $K$-theory. As a consequence all simple, locally AH and TAF \CA s are in fact AH algebras (it is known that there are locally AH algebras that are not AH). We also prove the following Rationalization Theorem. Let $A$ and $B$ be two unital separable nuclear simple TAF \CA s with unique normalized traces satisfying the Universal Coefficient Theorem. If $A$ and $B$ have the same (ordered and scaled) $K$-theory and $K_0 (A)_+$ is locally finitely generated, then $A \otimes Q \cong B \otimes Q$, where $Q$ is the UHF-algebra with the rational $K_0$. Classification results (with restriction on $K_0$-theory) for the above \CA s are also obtained. For example, we show that, if $A$ and $B$ are unital nuclear separable simple TAF \CA s with the unique normalized trace satisfying the UCT and with $K_1(A) = K_1(B)$, and $A$ and $B$ have the same rational (scaled ordered) $K_0$, then $A \cong B$. Similar results are also obtained for some cases in which $K_0$ is non-divisible such as $K_0(A) = \mathbf{Z} [1/2]$.

Perforated Ordered $\K_0$-Groups
A simple $\C^*$-algebra is constructed for which the Murray-von Neumann equivalence classes of projections, with the usual addition---induced by addition of orthogonal projections---form the additive semi-group $$ \{0,2,3,\dots\}. $$ (This is a particularly simple instance of the phenomenon of perforation of the ordered $\K_0$-group, which has long been known in the commutative case---for instance, in the case of the four-sphere---and was recently observed by the second author in the case of a simple $\C^*$-algebra.)

Real Interpolation with Logarithmic Functors and Reiteration
We present ``reiteration theorems'' with limiting values $\theta=0$ and $\theta = 1$ for a real interpolation method involving broken-logarithmic functors. The resulting spaces lie outside of the original scale of spaces and to describe them new interpolation functors are introduced. For an ordered couple of (quasi-) Banach spaces similar results were presented without proofs by Doktorskii in [D].

Compact Groups of Operators on Subproportional Quotients of $l^m_1$
It is proved that a ``typical'' $n$-dimensional quotient $X_n$ of $l^m_1$ with $n = m^{\sigma}$, $0 < \sigma < 1$, has the property $$ \Average \int_G \|Tx\|_{X_n} \,dh_G(T) \geq \frac{c}{\sqrt{n\log^3 n}} \biggl( n - \int_G |\tr T| \,dh_G (T) \biggr), $$ for every compact group $G$ of operators acting on $X_n$, where $d_G(T)$ stands for the normalized Haar measure on $G$ and the average is taken over all extreme points of the unit ball of $X_n$. Several consequences of this estimate are presented.

The Dunford-Pettis Property for Symmetric Spaces
A complete description of symmetric spaces on a separable measure space with the Dunford-Pettis property is given. It is shown that $\ell^1$, $c_0$ and $\ell^{\infty}$ are the only symmetric sequence spaces with the Dunford-Pettis property, and that in the class of symmetric spaces on $(0, \alpha)$, $0 < \alpha \leq \infty$, the only spaces with the Dunford-Pettis property are $L^1$, $L^{\infty}$, $L^1 \cap L^{\infty}$, $L^1 + L^{\infty}$, $(L^{\infty})^\circ$ and $(L^1 + L^{\infty})^\circ$, where $X^\circ$ denotes the norm closure of $L^1 \cap L^{\infty}$ in $X$. It is also proved that all Banach dual spaces of $L^1 \cap L^{\infty}$ and $L^1 + L^{\infty}$ have the Dunford-Pettis property. New examples of Banach spaces showing that the Dunford-Pettis property is not a three-space property are also presented. As applications we obtain that the spaces $(L^1 + L^{\infty})^\circ$ and $(L^{\infty})^\circ$ have a unique symmetric structure, and we get a characterization of the Dunford-Pettis property of some K\"othe-Bochner spaces.

Operator Estimates for Fredholm Modules
We study estimates of the type $$ \Vert \phi(D) - \phi(D_0) \Vert_{\emt} \leq C \cdot \Vert D - D_0 \Vert^{\alpha}, \quad \alpha = \frac12, 1 $$ where $\phi(t) = t(1 + t^2)^{-1/2}$, $D_0 = D_0^*$ is an unbounded linear operator affiliated with a semifinite von Neumann algebra $\calM$, $D - D_0$ is a bounded self-adjoint linear operator from $\calM$ and $(1 + D_0^2)^{-1/2} \in \emt$, where $\emt$ is a symmetric operator space associated with $\calM$. In particular, we prove that $\phi(D) - \phi(D_0)$ belongs to the non-commutative $L_p$-space for some $p \in (1,\infty)$, provided $(1 + D_0^2)^{-1/2}$ belongs to the non-commutative weak $L_r$-space for some $r \in [1,p)$. In the case $\calM = \calB (\calH)$ and $1 \leq p \leq 2$, we show that this result continues to hold under the weaker assumption $(1 + D_0^2)^{-1/2} \in \calC_p$. This may be regarded as an odd counterpart of A.~Connes' result for the case of even Fredholm modules.

Chern Characters of Fourier Modules
Let $A_\theta$ denote the rotation algebra---the universal $C^\ast$-algebra generated by unitaries $U,V$ satisfying $VU=e^{2\pi i\theta}UV$, where $\theta$ is a fixed real number. Let $\sigma$ denote the Fourier automorphism of $A_\theta$ defined by $U\mapsto V$, $V\mapsto U^{-1}$, and let $B_\theta = A_\theta \rtimes_\sigma \mathbb{Z}/4\mathbb{Z}$ denote the associated $C^\ast$-crossed product. It is shown that there is a canonical inclusion $\mathbb{Z}^9 \hookrightarrow K_0(B_\theta)$ for each $\theta$ given by nine canonical modules. The unbounded trace functionals of $B_\theta$ (yielding the Chern characters here) are calculated to obtain the cyclic cohomology group of order zero $\HC^0(B_\theta)$ when $\theta$ is irrational. The Chern characters of the nine modules---and more importantly, the Fourier module---are computed and shown to involve techniques from the theory of Jacobi's theta functions. Also derived are explicit equations connecting unbounded traces across strong Morita equivalence, which turn out to be non-commutative extensions of certain theta function equations. These results provide the basis for showing that for a dense $G_\delta$ set of values of $\theta$ one has $K_0(B_\theta)\cong\mathbb{Z}^9$ and is generated by the nine classes constructed here.
