When universal separated graph $C^*$-algebras are exact


We consider when the universal $C^*$-algebras associated to separated graphs are exact. Specifically, for finite separated graphs we show that the universal $C^*$-algebra is exact if and only if the $C^*$-algebra is isomorphic to a graph $C^*$-algebra which occurs precisely when the universal and reduced $C^*$-algebras of the separated graph are isomorphic.

Key words: Edge-colored directed graph, separated graph, $C^*$-algebra, exact.
