Let (G,G+) be a lattice-ordered abelian group with positive cone G+, and let H+ be a hereditary subsemigroup of G+. In previous work, the author and Pryde introduced a closed ideal IH+ of the C-subalgebra BG+ of (G+) spanned by the functions {1x:xG+}. Then we showed that the crossed product C-algebra B(G/H)+×βG+ is realized as an induced C-algebra IndHGˆ(B(G/H)+×τ(G/H)+). In this paper, we prove the existence of the following short exact sequence of C-algebras: 0IH+×αG+BG+×αG+IndHGˆ(B(G/H)+×τ(G/H)+)0. This relates BG+×αG+ to the structure of IH+×αG+ and B(G/H)+×βG+. We then show that there is an isomorphism ι of BH+×αH+ into BG+×αG+. This leads to nontrivial results on commutator ideals in C-crossed products by hereditary subsemigroups involving an extension of previous results by Adji, Raeburn, and Rosjanuardi.
