A class of C^*-algebras generalizing both graph algebras and homeomorphism C^*-algebras III, ideal structures
We investigate the ideal structures of the C^*-algebras arising from topological graphs. We give the complete description of ideals of such C^*-algebras which are invariant under the so-called gauge action, and give the condition on topological graphs so that all ideals are invariant under the gauge action. We get conditions for our C^*-algebras to be simple, prime or primitive. We completely determine the prime ideals, and show that most of them are primitive. Finally, we construct a discrete graph such that the associated C^*-algebra is prime but not primitive.
