Reduced free products of \(C^*\)-algebras with specified states are constructed and the symmetries of two types of \(C^*\)-algebras arising as free products are studied. The first type arises from the constructions on the Fock-space for Boltzman statistics, which gives an action of the orthogonal group of an n-dimensional real Hilbert space on the factor of the free group on n generators, which is applied to obtain a non commutative central limit theorem with appropriate definition of independent random variables. The other type deals with certain extensions of the Cuntz-algebras on the Fock-space for Boltzman statistics, whose automorphism groups are U(n,1). Also is given a representation of U(n,1) along with its decomposition into irreducible ones and its relation to the Lie superalgebra \(\ell (n,1)\).
