Abstract: To a special embedding of circle algebras having the same spectrum, we associate an r-discrete, locally compact groupoid, similar to the Cuntz-Krieger groupoid. Its -algebra, denoted , is a continuous version of the Cuntz-Krieger algebras . The algebra is generated by an A**T**-algebra and a nonunitary isometry. We compute its K-theory under the assumption that the A**T**-algebra is simple.
