Hilbert \(C^*\)-bimodules and continuous Cuntz-Krieger algebras. (English) Zbl 1031.46067

The authors consider certain correspondences on the disjoint union \(\Omega\) of circles which naturally give rise to Hilbert \(C^*\)-bimodules \(X\) over circle algebras \(A\). The bimodules \(X\) generate \(C^*\)-algebras \({\mathcal O}_X\) which are isomorphic to continuous Cuntz-Krieger algebras considered by { it V. Deaconu} [see Proc. Am. Math. Soc. 124, 3427-3435 (1996; Zbl 0864.46033)]. The simplicity and the ideal structure of the algebras \({\mathcal O}_X\) under some conditions using \((I)\)-freeness and \((II)\)-freeness defined in [T. Kajiwara, C. Pinzari and Y. Watatami, J. Funct. Anal. 159, 295-322 (1998; Zbl 0942.46035)] are studied. More precisely, a bijective correspondence between the set of closed two sided ideals of \({\mathcal O}_X\) and saturated hereditarily open subsets of \(\Omega\) is obtained.
