Factor groupoid examples: Cantor functions and iterated function systems

In this talk I will describe two constructions of Hausdorff étale factor groupoids, which, in a sense, can be thought of as noncommutative quotient spaces. One construction arises from taking a quotient space of the unit space of an AF-groupoid, and the other comes from certain nonhomogeneous extensions of Cantor minimal systems considered by Robin Deeley, Ian Putnam, and Karen Strung. The C*-algebras of the factor groupoids are classifiable in the Elliott scheme, and I will describe their K-theory.
