Inverse semigroups associated to subshifts
The dynamics of a one-sided subshift X can be modeled by a set of partially defined bijections. From this data we define an inverse semigroup SX and show that it has many interesting properties. We prove that the Carlsen–Matsumoto C*-algebra OX associated to X is canonically isomorphic to Exel's tight C*-algebra of SX. As one consequence, we obtain that OX can be written as a partial crossed product of a commutative C*-algebra by a countable group.
