Derivations of Leavitt path algebras
In this paper, we describe the K-module HH1(LK(Γ)) of outer derivations of the Leavitt path algebra LK(Γ) of a row-finite graph Γ with coefficients in an associative commutative ring K with unit. We explicitly describe a set of generators of HH1(LK(Γ)) and relations among them. We also describe a Lie algebra structure of outer derivation algebra of the Toeplitz algebra. We prove that every derivation of a Leavitt path algebra can be extended to a derivation of the corresponding C*-algebra.
