C*-simplicity of n-periodic products
- 47 Downloads
The C*-simplicity of n-periodic products is proved for a large class of groups. In particular, the n-periodic products of any finite or cyclic groups (including the free Burnside groups) are C*-simple. Continuum-many nonisomorphic 3-generated nonsimple C*-simple groups are constructed in each of which the identity x n = 1 holds, where n ≥ 1003 is any odd number. The problem of the existence of C*-simple groups without free subgroups of rank 2 was posed by de la Harpe in 2007.
