article description
We prove that if Λ is a row-finite k-graph with no sources, then the associated C*-algebra is simple if and only if Λ is cofinal and satisfies Kumjian and Pask’s aperiodicity condition, known as Condition (A). We prove that the aperiodicity condition is equivalent to a suitably modified version of Robertson and Steger’s original nonperiodicity condition (H3), which in particular involves only finite paths. We also characterise both cofinality and aperiodicity of Λ in terms of ideals in C∗(Λ).
