Abstract: Stacey has recently characterised the crossed product $ A{ \times _\alpha }{\mathbf{N}}$ of a $ {C^{\ast}}$-algebra $ A$ by an endomorphism $ \alpha $ as a $ {C^{\ast}}$-algebra whose representations are given by covariant representations of the system $ (A,\alpha )$. Following work of O'Donovan for automorphisms, we give conditions on a covariant representation $ (\pi ,S)$ of $ (A,\alpha )$ which ensure that the corresponding representation $ \pi \times S$ of $ A{ \times _\alpha }{\mathbf{N}}$ is faithful. We then use this result to improve a theorem of Paschke on the simplicity of $ A{ \times _\alpha }{\mathbf{N}}$.
