Abstract:

An irrational extended rotation algebra is the $C^*$-algebra generated by the irrational rotation algebra together with certain spectral projections of each canonical generator. I'll talk about the structure of irrational extended rotation algebras (in particular, they are AF) and some plausible generalizations.

This is based on joint work with G. A. Elliott.
