Extensions of Cantor minimal systems and dimension groups.

Abstract : Given a factor map p: (X, T) -> (Y, S) of Cantor minimal systems, we study the relations between the dimension groups of the two systems. First, we interpret the torsion subgroup of the quotient of the dimension groups K-0(X)/K-0(Y) in terms of intermediate extensions which are extensions of (Y, S) by a compact abelian group. Then we show that, by contrast, the existence of an intermediate non-abelian finite group extension can produce a situation where the dimension group of (Y, S) embeds into a proper subgroup of the dimension group of (X, T), yet the quotient of the dimension groups is nonetheless torsion free. Next we define higher order cohomology groups H-n(X vertical bar Y) associated to an extension, and study them in various cases (proximal extensions, extensions by, not necessarily abelian, finite groups, etc.). Our main result here is that all the cohomology groups H-n(X vertical bar Y) are torsion groups. As a consequence we can now identify H-0(X vertical bar Y)as the torsion group of the quotient group K-0(X)/K-0(Y).
