## Abstract:

We consider the structure of group $C^{\ast }$-algebras whose irreducible representations have bounded dimension. We give some general results, including a description of the topology on the spectrum, and then calculate explicitly the $C^{\ast }$-algebras of two specific groups, one of them a nonsymmorphic space group.## References
