Intermediate subalgebras and bimodules for general crossed products of von Neumann algebras Academic Article uri icon


  • Let [Formula: see text] be a discrete group acting on a von Neumann algebra [Formula: see text] by properly outer -automorphisms. In this paper, we study the containment [Formula: see text] of [Formula: see text] inside the crossed product. We characterize the intermediate von Neumann algebras, extending earlier work of other authors in the factor case. We also determine the [Formula: see text]-bimodules that are closed in the Bures topology and which coincide with the [Formula: see text]-closed ones under a mild hypothesis on [Formula: see text]. We use these results to obtain a general version of Mercers theorem concerning the extension of certain isometric [Formula: see text]-continuous maps on [Formula: see text]-bimodules to -automorphisms of the containing von Neumann algebras.
