Abstract: There are many classes of nonsimple graph $ C^*$-algebras that are classified by the six-term exact sequence in $ K$-theory. In this paper we consider the range of this invariant and determine which cyclic six-term exact sequences can be obtained by various classes of graph $ C^*$-algebras. To accomplish this, we establish a general method that allows us to form a graph with a given six-term exact sequence of $ K$-groups by splicing together smaller graphs whose $ C^*$-algebras realize portions of the six-term exact sequence. As rather immediate consequences, we obtain the first permanence results for extensions of graph $ C^*$-algebras.

We are hopeful that the results and methods presented here will also prove useful in more general cases, such as situations where the $ C^*$-algebras under investigation have more than one ideal and where there are currently no relevant classification theories available.
