Title:Entropy in measurable dynamics, III
Seminar:Working Seminar: Dynamics and its Working Tools
Speaker:Lewis Bowen, Texas A & M University
Abstract:
This is third talk in a 3-part series. Now that the definition of entropy has been extended to free groups and sofic groups, which classical results also extend? Markov chains can be defined over free groups. The theory is analogous to classical Markov chains and is a useful tool in extending some classical formulas including the Abramov-Rohlin formula and Yuzvinskii's addition formula. I will discuss these and other results, which depending on time and interest might include an analogue of the asymptotic equipartition property, applications to random regular graphs, f-invariants for non-free groups and more.
