Decomposition rank of $\mathcal{Z}$-stable $\mathrm{C}^*$-algebras

Aaron Tikuisis and Wilhelm Winter

Vol. 7 (2014), No. 3, 673‚Äď700

We show that C-algebras of the form C(X) Z, where X is compact and Hausdorff and Z denotes the Jiang–Su algebra, have decomposition rank at most 2. This amounts to a dimension reduction result for C-bundles with sufficiently regular fibres. It establishes an important case of a conjecture on the fine structure of nuclear C-algebras of Toms and Winter, even in a nonsimple setting, and gives evidence that the topological dimension of noncommutative spaces is governed by fibres rather than base spaces.
