We study the Toeplitz algebra 𝒯(ℕ⋊ℕ×) and three quotients of this algebra: the C*-algebra 𝒬ℕ recently introduced by Cuntz, and two new ones, which we call the additive and multiplicative boundary quotients. These quotients are universal for Nica-covariant representations of ℕ⋊ℕ× satisfying extra relations, and can be realised as partial crossed products. We use the structure theory for partial crossed products to prove a uniqueness theorem for the additive boundary quotient, and use the recent analysis of KMS states on 𝒯(ℕ⋊ℕ×) to describe the KMS states on the two quotients. We then show that 𝒯(ℕ⋊ℕ×), 𝒬ℕ and our new quotients are all interesting new examples for Larsen’s theory of Exel crossed products by semigroups.
