Abstract. The notion of a multiplier of a group X is generalized to that of a C*-multiplier by allowing it to have values in an arbitrary C*-algebra A. On the other hand, the construction of the crossed product algebra A x X is generalized by replacing the action of X in A by a projective action of X as linear transformations of the space of continuous functions with compact support in X and with values in A. The generalizations are done in such a way that a one-to-one correspondence exists between C*-multipliers and projective actions. The results are applicable in mathematical physics. Quantum spacetime is discussed as an example.
