 In this book, the authors prove a classification theorem for purely infinite simple \(C^\ast\)algebras that is strong enough to show that the tensor products of two different irrational rotation algebras with the same even Cuntz algebra are isomorphic. Readership Graduate students, research mathematicians, and physicists interested in operator algebras. Table of Contents  Introduction
