Abstract: If is the endomorphism of the disk algebra, , induced by composition with a finite Blaschke product , then the semicrossed product imbeds canonically, completely isometrically into . Hence in the case of a non-constant Blaschke product , the C*-envelope has the form , where is the solenoid system for . In the case where is a constant, the C*-envelope of is strongly Morita equivalent to a crossed product of the form , where is a suitable map and is the solenoid system for .
