In this book, it is shown that the simple unital \(C^*\)algebras arising as inductive limits of sequences of finite direct sums of matrix algebras over \(C(X_i)\), where \(X_i\) are arbitrary variable trees, are classified by Ktheoretical and tracial data. This result generalizes the result of George Elliott of the case of \(X_i = [0,1]\). The added generality is useful in the classification of more general inductive limit \(C^*\)algebras.
ReadershipGraduate students and research mathematicians interested in the classification problem of \(C^*\)algebras or the general theory of \(C^*\)algebras.
