Abstract: Let be a locally compact dynamical system, and the norm-closed subalgebra of the crossed product generated by the nonnegative powers of in case is a homeomorphism. If is just a continuous map, can still be defined by a crossed product type construction. The ideal structure of these algebras is determined in case acts freely. A class of strictly transitive Banach modules is described, indicating that for the nonselfadjoint operator algebras considered here, not all irreducible representations are on Hilbert space. Finally in a special case, the family of all invariant maximal right ideals is given.
