Let \(X\) be a locally compact Hausdorff space with \(n\) proper continuous self maps \(\sigma_i:X \to X\) for \(1 \le i \le n\). To this the authors associate two conjugacy operator algebras which emerge as the natural candidates for the universal algebra of the system, the tensor algebra \(\mathcal{A}(X,\tau)\) and the semicrossed product \(\mathrm{C}_0(X)\times_\tau\mathbb{F}_n^+\).

They develop the necessary dilation theory for both models. In particular, they exhibit an explicit family of boundary representations which determine the C*-envelope of the tensor algebra.
