Homotopy type of the unitary group of the uniform Roe algebra on n

    We study the homotopy type of the space of the unitary group U1(Cu(|n|)) of the uniform Roe algebra Cu(|n|) of n. We show that the stabilizing map U1(Cu(|n|))U(Cu(|n|)) is a homotopy equivalence. Moreover, when n=1,2, we determine the homotopy type of U1(Cu(|n|)), which is the product of the unitary group U1(C(|n|)) (having the homotopy type of U() or ×BU() depending on the parity of n) of the Roe algebra C(|n|) and rational Eilenberg–MacLane spaces.
