Abstract: To a compact Hausdorff space which covers itself, we associate an -discrete locally compact Hausdorff groupoid. Its -algebra carries an action of the circle allowing it to be regarded as a crossed product by an endomorphism and as a generalization of the Cuntz algebra . We consider examples related to coverings of the circle and of a Heisenberg -manifold.
