Amenable actions and purely infinite crossed products

Since the completion of the Elliott classification programme it is an important question to ask which C*-algebras satisfy the assumptions of the classification theorem. We will ask this question for the case of crossed-product C*-algebras associated to actions of nonamenable groups and focus on two extreme cases: Actions on commutative C*-algebras and actions on simple C*-algebras. It turns out that for a large class of nonamenable groups, classifiability of the crossed product is automatic under the minimal assumptions on the action. This is joint work with E. Gardella, S. Geffen, P. Naryshkin and A. Vaccaro.
