Abstract: If a locally compact group acts properly on a locally compact space , then the induced action on is proper in the sense of Rieffel, with generalised fixedpoint algebra . Rieffel's theory then gives a Morita equivalence between and an ideal in the crossed product ; we identify by describing the primitive ideals which contain it, and we deduce that if and only if acts freely. We show that if a discrete group acts on a directed graph and every vertex of has a finite stabiliser, then the induced action of on the graph algebra is proper. When acts freely on , the generalised fixedpoint algebra is isomorphic to and Morita equivalent to , in parallel with the situation for free and proper actions on spaces, but this parallel does not seem to give useful predictions for nonfree actions.
