Abstract: We introduce a new class of -algebras, which is a generalization of both graph algebras and homeomorphism -algebras. This class is very large and also very tractable. We prove the so-called gauge-invariant uniqueness theorem and the Cuntz-Krieger uniqueness theorem, and compute the -groups of our algebras.
