Abstract

We consider the natural contraction from the central Haagerup tensor product of a C*-algebra A with itself to the space of completely bounded maps CB( A) on A and investigate those A where there exists an inverse map with finite norm L( A). We show that a stabilised version L'(A) = sup(n) L(M-n(A)) depends only on the primitive ideal space Prim(A). The dependence is via simplicial complex structures (defined from primal intersections) on finite sets of primitive ideals that contain a Glimm ideal of A. Moreover L'(A) = L(A circle times kappa( H)), with kappa(H) the compact operators, which requires us to develop the theory in the context of C*-algebras that are not necessarily unital.
