This course is an introduction to graph C*-algebras. We will begin
with a quick introduction to operator algebras and C*-algebras, and
then look at a way to construct a C*-algebra from a directed graph. We
will study these graph C*-algebras and develop a detailed theory that
will allow us to describe much of the C*-algebraic structure in terms
of the corresponding graph. We will also see how the theory of graph
C*-algebras has applications to other parts of operator algebra, and
how it can be used to illustrate many aspects of general C*-algebra
theory.
