Extensions of stable $C^*$-algebras

Doc. Math., J. DMV 6, 241-246 (2001)


Summary: We show that an extension of two stable $C^*$-algebras need not be stable. More explicitly we find an extension $$0 \to C(Z) \otimes {\cal K} \to A \to {\cal K} \to 0$$ for some (infinite dimensional) compact Hausdorff space $Z$ such that $A$ is not stable. The $C^*$-algebra $A$ in our example has an approximate unit consisting of projections.
