Abstract. Let a natural number N greater than or equal to 2 be given. Motivated by wavelet analysis, we consider a class of normal representations of the C*-algebra A_N on two unitary generators U, V subject to the relation UVU^{-1}=V^N. The representations are in one-to-one correspondence with solutions h \in L^1(T), h \geq 0, to R(h)=h where R is a certain transfer operator (positivity-preserving) which was studied previously by D. Ruelle. The representations of A_N may also be viewed as representations of a certain (discrete) N-adic ax+b group which was considered recently by J.-B. Bost and A. Connes.
