Graded $K$-theory, filtered $K$-theory and the classification of graph algebras

We prove that an isomorphism of graded Grothendieck groups K0gr of two Leavitt path algebras induces an isomorphism of a certain quotient of algebraic filtered K-theory and consequently an isomorphism of filtered K-theory of their associated graph C-algebras. As an application, we show that since for a finite graph E with no sinks, K0gr(L(E)) of the Leavitt path algebra L(E) coincides with Krieger’s dimension group of its adjacency matrix AE, our result relates the shift equivalence of graphs to the filtered K-theory and consequently gives that two arbitrary shift equivalent matrices give stably isomorphic graph C-algebras. This result was only known for irreducible graphs.
