Let E be a second-countable, locally compact, Hausdorff groupoid equipped with an action of such that G: = E/ is a principal groupoid with Haar system λ. The twisted groupoid C*-algebra C*(E; G, λ) is a quotient of the C*-algebra of E obtained by completing the space of -equivariant functions on E. We show that C*(E; G, λ) is postliminal if and only if the orbit space of G is T0 and that C*(E; G, λ) is liminal if and only if the orbit space is T1. We also show that C*(E; G, λ) has bounded trace if and only if G is integrable and that C*(E; G, λ) is a Fell algebra if and only if G is Cartan.
Let be a second-countable, locally compact, Hausdorff groupoid with Haar system λ and continuously varying, abelian isotropy groups. Let be the isotropy groupoid and : = /. Using the results about twisted groupoid C*-algebras, we show that the C*-algebra C*(, λ) has bounded trace if and only if is integrable and that C*(, λ) is a Fell algebra if and only if is Cartan. We illustrate our theorems with examples of groupoids associated to directed graphs.
