Maximal subalgebras of Cāˆ—-crossed products

Costel Peligrad and S. Rubinstein

Vol. 110 (1984), No. 2, 325ā€“333

Let (A,G,α) be a C-dynamical system. Suppose G is discrete, archimedian-linearly ordered, and A is simple with unit. In this paper we prove that the subalgebra of analytic elements A(G,α) C(A,G,α) is a maximal subalgebra of the crossed product C(A,G,α).

The same question is solved for a C-dynamical system associated with a von Neumann algebra with a homogeneous periodic state. Finally, if G = Z we prove the converse of this result.
