Abstract

Kaplansky introduced the notions of CCR and GCR $C^{\ast }$-algebras, because they have a tractable representation theory. Many years later, he introduced the notions of CCR and GCR rings. In this paper we characterize when the algebra of an ample groupoid over a field is CCR and GCR. The results turn out to be exact analogues of the corresponding characterization of locally compact groupoids with CCR and GCR $C^{\ast }$-algebras. As a consequence, we classify the CCR and GCR Leavitt path algebras.
