Let G be an inductive limit of finite cyclic groups, and A be a unital simple projectionless C*-algebra with K1(A) ≅ G and a unique tracial state, as constructed based on dimension drop algebras by Jiang and Su. First, we show that any two aperiodic elements in Aut(A)/WInn(A) are conjugate, where WInn(A) means the subgroup of Aut(A) consisting of automorphisms which are inner in the tracial representation. In the second part of this paper, we consider a class of unital simple C*-algebras with a unique tracial state which contains the class of unital simple A-algebras of real rank zero with a unique tracial state. This class is closed under inductive limits and crossed products by actions of with the Rohlin property. Let A be a TAF-algebra in this class. We show that for any automorphism α of A there exists an automorphism of A with the Rohlin property such that ∼ α and α are asymptotically unitarily equivalent. For the proof we use an aperiodic automorphism of the Jiang-Su algebra.
