Title:W^*-Rigidity for actions of Wreath Product Groups
Seminar:GAP Seminar
Speaker:Owen Sizemore, UCLA
Abstract:
The past 8 years have seen much progress in the classification of actions of groups on measure spaces. Much of this is due to new powerful techniques in operator algebras. We will survey some of these results as well as the new operator algebra techniques, as well as give new results concerning the classification of actions of wreath product groups.
