Title:Quasirandom groups
Seminar:Department of Mathematics Colloquium
Speaker:Vitali Bergelson, Ohio State University
Abstract:
A finite group G is called D-quasirandom for some parameter D, if all non-trivial unitary representations of G have dimension greater or equal to D. For example, the group SL(2, F_p) is (p-1)/2 quasirandom for any prime p. Informally, a finite group is quasirandom if it is D-quasirandom for a large value of D. We will discuss some recent results involving quasirandom groups, including a new mixing theorem obtained in a joint work with T. Tao.
