SUBSETS OF VERTICES GIVE MORITA EQUIVALENCES OF LEAVITT PATH ALGEBRAS

Abstract

We show that every subset of vertices of a directed graph $E$ gives a Morita equivalence between a subalgebra and an ideal of the associated Leavitt path algebra. We use this observation to prove an algebraic version of a theorem of Crisp and Gow: certain subgraphs of $E$ can be contracted to a new graph $G$ such that the Leavitt path algebras of $E$ and $G$ are Morita equivalent. We provide examples to illustrate how desingularising a graph, and in- or out-delaying of a graph, all fit into this setting.
