Abstract: Recently, Cuntz and Li introduced the -algebra associated to an integral domain with finite quotients. In this paper, we show that is a partial group algebra of the group with suitable relations, where is the field of fractions of . We identify the spectrum of these relations and we show that it is homeomorphic to the profinite completion of . By using partial crossed product theory, we reconstruct some results proved by Cuntz and Li. Among them, we prove that is simple by showing that the action is topologically free and minimal.
