Approximately finite dimensional c*-algebras and bratteli diagrams

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We determine properties of an AF algebra by observing the characteris­tics of its diagram. In particular, we characterize AF algebras that are liminal, postliminal, antiliminal and with continuous trace; moreover, we characterize liminal AF algebras with Hausdorff spectrum. Some elementary examples of AF algebras with certain desired properties are constructed by using these characteri­zations.
