A descriptive view of unitary group representations

Simon Thomas (2015)

Journal of the European Mathematical Society

In this paper, we will study the relative complexity of the unitary duals of countable groups. In particular, we will explain that if G and H are countable amenable non-type I groups, then the unitary duals of G and H are Borel isomorphic.

A property for locally convex *-algebras related to property (T) and character amenability

Xiao Chen, Anthony To-Ming Lau, Chi-Keung Ng (2015)

Studia Mathematica

For a locally convex *-algebra A equipped with a fixed continuous *-character ε (which is roughly speaking a generalized F*-algebra), we define a cohomological property, called property (FH), which is similar to character amenability. Let C c ( G ) be the space of continuous functions with compact support on a second countable locally compact group G equipped with the convolution *-algebra structure and a certain inductive topology. We show that ( C c ( G ) , ε G ) has property (FH) if and only if G has property (T). On...

Amenability and Ramsey theory

Justin Tatch Moore (2013)

Fundamenta Mathematicae

The purpose of this article is to connect the notion of the amenability of a discrete group with a new form of structural Ramsey theory. The Ramsey-theoretic reformulation of amenability constitutes a considerable weakening of the Følner criterion. As a by-product, it will be shown that in any non-amenable group G, there is a subset E of G such that no finitely additive probability measure on G measures all translates of E equally. The analysis of discrete groups will be generalized to the setting...

Amenability and unique ergodicity of automorphism groups of Fraïssé structures

Andy Zucker (2014)

Fundamenta Mathematicae

In this paper we consider those Fraïssé classes which admit companion classes in the sense of [KPT]. We find a necessary and sufficient condition for the automorphism group of the Fraïssé limit to be amenable and apply it to prove the non-amenability of the automorphism groups of the directed graph S(3) and the boron tree structure T. Also, we provide a negative answer to the Unique Ergodicity-Generic Point problem of Angel-Kechris-Lyons [AKL]. By considering G L ( V ) , where V is the countably infinite-dimensional...

Amenability and weak amenability of l¹-algebras of polynomial hypergroups

Rupert Lasser (2007)

Studia Mathematica

We investigate amenability and weak amenability of the l¹-algebra of polynomial hypergroups. We derive conditions for (weak) amenability adapted to polynomial hypergroups and show that these conditions are often not satisfied. However, we prove amenability for the hypergroup induced by the Chebyshev polynomials of the first kind.

Amenability, extreme amenability, model-theoretic stability, and dependence property in integral logic

Karim Khanaki (2016)

Fundamenta Mathematicae

This paper has three parts. First, we study and characterize amenable and extremely amenable topological semigroups in terms of invariant measures using integral logic. We prove definability of some properties of a topological semigroup such as amenability and the fixed point on compacta property. Second, we define types and develop local stability in the framework of integral logic. For a stable formula ϕ, we prove definability of all complete ϕ-types over models and deduce from this the fundamental...

Amenability of linear-activity automaton groups

Gideon Amir, Omer Angel, Bálint Virág (2013)

Journal of the European Mathematical Society

We prove that every linear-activity automaton group is amenable. The proof is based on showing that a random walk on a specially constructed degree 1 automaton group – the mother group – has asymptotic entropy 0. Our result answers an open question by Nekrashevych in the Kourovka notebook, and gives a partial answer to a question of Sidki.
