We report on recent progress in the program to classify separable amenable C∗algebras. Our emphasis is on the newly apparent role of regularity properties such as finite decomposition rank, strict comparison of positive elements, and Zstability, and on the importance of the Cuntz semigroup. We include a brief history of the program’s successes since 1989, a more detailed look at the Villadsentype algebras which have so dramatically changed the landscape, and a collection of announcements on the structure and properties of the Cuntz semigroup.

We introduce the tracial Rokhlin property for automorphisms of stably finite simple unital C*algebras containing enough projections. This property is formally weaker than the various Rokhlin properties considered by Herman and Ocneanu, Kishimoto, and Izumi. Our main results are as follows. Let A be a stably finite simple unital C*algebra, and let α be an automorphism of A which has the tracial Rokhlin property. Suppose A has real rank zero and stable rank one, and suppose that the order on projections over A is determined by traces. Then the crossed product algebra C ∗ (Z, A, α) also has these three properties. We also present examples of C*algebras A with automorphisms α which satisfy the above assumptions, but such that C ∗ (Z, A, α) does not have tracial rank zero.
Approximate Homotopy of Homomorphisms from C(X) into a Simple C ∗algebra

Abstract. Let X be a finite CW complex and let h1, h2: C(X) → A be two unital homomorphisms, where A is a unital C ∗algebra. We study the problem when h1 and h2 are approximately homotopy. We present a Ktheoretical necessary and sufficient condition for them to be approximately homotopy under the assumption that A is a unital separable simple C ∗algebra of tracial rank zero, or A is a unital purely infinite simple C ∗algebra. When they are approximately homotopy, we also give a bound for the length of the homotopy. These results are also extended to the case that h1 and h2 are approximately multiplicative contractive completely positive linear maps. Suppose that h: C(X) → A is a monomorphism and u ∈ A is a unitary (with [u] = {0} in K1(A)). We prove that, for any ǫ> 0, and any compact subset F ⊂ C(X), there exists δ> 0 and a finite subset G ⊂ C(X) satisfying the following: if ‖[h(f), u] ‖ < δ and Bott(h, u) = {0}, then there exists a continuous rectifiable path {ut: t ∈ [0, 1]} such that u0 = u, u1 = 1A and ‖[h(g), ut] ‖ < ǫ for all g ∈ F and t ∈ [0,1].

Abstract. We calculate the microstates free entropy dimension of natural generators in an amalgamated free product of certain von Neumann algebras, with amalgamation over a hyperfinite subalgebra. In particular, some ‘exotic ’ Popa algebra generators of free group factors are shown to have the expected free entropy dimension. We also show that microstates and non–microstates free entropy dimension agree for generating sets of many groups. In the appendix, the first L 2 –Betti number for certain amalgamated free products of groups is calculated. 1.

We introduce a general class of automorphisms of rotation algebras, the noncommutative Furstenberg transformations. We prove that fully irrational noncommutative Furstenberg transformations have the tracial Rokhlin property, which is a strong form of outerness. We conclude that crossed products by these automorphisms have stable rank one, real rank zero, and order on projections determined by traces (Blackadar’s Second Fundamental Comparability Question). We also prove that several classes of simple quotients of the C*algebras of discrete subgroups of five dimensional nilpotent Lie groups, considered by Milnes and Walters, are crossed products of simple C*algebras (C*algebras of minimal ordinary Furstenberg transformations) by automorphisms which have the tracial Rokhlin property. It follows that these algebras also have stable rank one, real rank zero, and order on projections determined by traces.

Say that a separable, unital C ∗algebra D ≇ C is strongly selfabsorbing if there exists an isomorphism ϕ: D → D ⊗ D such that ϕ and idD ⊗1D are approximately unitarily equivalent ∗homomorphisms. We study this class of algebras, which includes the Cuntz algebras O2, O∞, the UHF algebras of infinite type, the Jiang–Su algebra Z and tensor products of O∞ with UHF algebras of infinite type. Given a strongly selfabsorbing C ∗algebra D we characterise when a separable C ∗algebra absorbs D tensorially (i.e., is Dstable), and prove closure properties for the class of separable Dstable C ∗algebras. Finally, we compute the possible Kgroups and prove a number of classification results which suggest that the examples listed above are the only strongly selfabsorbing C ∗algebras.

Abstract. The Jiang–Su algebra Z has come to prominence in the classification program for nuclear C ∗algebras of late, due primarily to the fact that Elliott’s classification conjecture predicts that all simple, separable, and nuclear C ∗algebras with unperforated Ktheory will absorb Z tensorially (i.e., will be Zstable). There exist counterexamples which suggest that the conjecture will only hold for simple, nuclear, separable andZstable C ∗algebras. We prove that virtually all classes of nuclear C ∗algebras for which the Elliott conjecture has been confirmed so far, consist of Zstable C ∗algebras. This result follows in large part from the following theorem, also proved herein: separable and approximately divisible C ∗algebras areZstable. The Jiang–Su algebra Z is a simple, separable, unital and nuclear C ∗algebra KKequivalent to C ([12]). Since its discovery in 1995 there has been a steady accumulation of evidence linking Z to Elliott’s program to classify separable, nuclear C ∗algebras via Ktheoretic invariants: in [12], Jiang and Su prove that simple,
On the classification of simple Zstable C ∗ algebras with real rank zero and finite decomposition rank

"... Abstract. We show that, if A is a separable simple unital C ∗algebra which absorbs the Jiang–Su algebraZ tensorially and which has real rank zero and finite decomposition rank, then A is tracially AF in the sense of Lin, without any restriction on the tracial state space. As a consequence, the Elli ..."

Abstract. We show that, if A is a separable simple unital C ∗algebra which absorbs the Jiang–Su algebraZ tensorially and which has real rank zero and finite decomposition rank, then A is tracially AF in the sense of Lin, without any restriction on the tracial state space. As a consequence, the Elliott conjecture is true for the class of C ∗algebras as above which, additionally, satisfy the Universal Coefficients Theorem. In particular, such algebras are completely determined by their ordered Ktheory. They are approximately homogeneous of topological dimension less than or equal to 3, approximately subhomogeneous of topological dimension at most 2 and their decomposition rank also is no greater than 2. It is the aim of the Elliott classification program to find complete Ktheoretic invariants for separable simple nuclear C ∗algebras. For purely infinite C ∗algebras, this task was accomplished by Kirchberg and Phillips, and there are numerous classification results for special inductive limits of (sub)homogeneous C ∗algebras,
