Abstract


The derivation constant K(A) ≥ 1 2 has been extensively studied for unital noncommutative C ∗ -algebras. In this paper, we investigate properties of K(M(A)) where M(A) is the multiplier algebra of a non-unital C ∗ -algebra A. A number of general results are obtained which are then applied to the group C ∗ -algebras A = C ∗ (GN ) where GN is the motion group R N o SO(N). Utilising the rich topological structure of the unitary dual GdN , it is shown that, for N ≥ 3, K(M(C ∗ (GN ))) = 1 2 ⌈ N 2 ⌉
