$C^*$-algebras and Fell bundles associated to a textile system

The notion of textile system was introduced by M. Nasu in order to analyze endomorphisms and automorphisms of topological Markov shifts. A textile system is given by two finite directed graphs $G$ and $H$ and two morphisms $p,q:G\to H$, with some extra properties. It turns out that a textile system determines a first quadrant two-dimensional shift of finite type, via a collection of Wang tiles, and conversely, any such shift is conjugate to a textile shift. In the case the morphisms $p$ and $q$ have the path lifting property, we prove that they induce groupoid morphisms $\pi, \rho:\Gamma(G)\to \Gamma(H)$ between the corresponding \'etale groupoids of $G$ and $H$. We define two families ${\mathcal A}(m,n)$ and $\bar{\mathcal A}(m,n)$ of $C^*$-algebras associated to a textile shift, and compute them in specific cases. These are graph algebras, associated to some one-dimensional shifts of finite type constructed from the textile shift. Under extra hypotheses, we also define two families of Fell bundles which encode the complexity of these two-dimensional shifts. We consider several classes of examples of textile shifts, including the full shift, the Golden Mean shift and shifts associated to rank two graphs.
