Spectrum of \(C^*\)-algebras of pseudodifferential operators with discontinuous symbols in an open manifold. (Russian) Zbl 0599.46079

The algebra \({\mathcal A}\) generated by zero order pseudodifferential operators on a smooth open manifold is considered. Symbols of the operators may have discontinuities of the ”first kind”. In the point of such a discontinuity there exists a limit of the symbol depending on the operator, and after completing the algebra the symbols with an everywhere dense set of discontinuities arise. The spectrum of the algebra \({\mathcal A}\) is described, i.e., the set of equivalence classes of irreducible representation with Jacobson’s topology. It is found that \({\mathcal A}\) is a I-type algebra.
