Abstract

We associate a C*-algebra of Toeplitz type with any number field. A first important property of the construction is its functoriality. For a natural one-parameter automorphism group it has a very interesting family of KMS states. Of particular interest is the case of number fields with nontrivial class group, where the partition functions are related to partial zeta functions and L-functions.
