## Abstract

In this paper, we characterize when the $\ell^p$ uniform Roe algebra of a metric space with bounded geometry is (stably) finite and when it is properly infinite in standard form for $p\in [1,\infty)$. Moreover, we show that the $\ell^p$ uniform Roe algebra is a (non-sequential) spatial $L^p$ AF algebra in the sense of Phillips and Viola if and only if the underlying metric space has asymptotic dimension zero.

We also consider the ordered $K_0$ groups of $\ell^p$ uniform Roe algebras for metric spaces with low asymptotic dimension, showing that (1) the ordered $K_0$ group is trivial when the metric space is non-amenable and has asymptotic dimension at most one, and (2) when the metric space is a countable locally finite group, the (ordered) $K_0$ group is a complete invariant for the (bijective) coarse equivalence class of the underlying locally finite group. It happens that in both cases the ordered $K_0$ group does not depend on $p\in [1,\infty)$.
