Geometry and Group Theory

Property (T) of Groups, Groupoids, and C*-algebras and their relationships

May 21, 14:30-15:30, 2017, -101


Kyle Austin (Ben-Gurion)


Bekka has defined a notion of property (T) for C-algebras that is congruous with property (T) groups in the sense that any C-completion of the complex group ring has property (T) if and only if the group does. We will outline the fairly straightforward proof of this fact, as well as discuss some ideas that Joav Orovitz and I have for “generalizing” property (T) for C*-algebras so that the analogous statement is true for groupoids and completions of their convolution algebras.

The Noriko Sakurai fellowship and the Friedman prize for the year 2017

Probability and ergodic theory (PET)

Quantitative multiple recurrence for two and three transformations.

May 23, 10:50-12:00, 2017, Math -101


Sebastián Donoso (University of O'higgins)


In this talk I will provide some counter-examples for quantitative multiple recurrence problems for systems with more than one transformation. For instance, I will show that there exists an ergodic system with two commuting transformations such that for every there exists such that for every $n \in \mathbb{N}$. The construction of such a system is based on the study of ``big’’ subsets of and satisfying combinatorial properties.

This a joint work with Wenbo Sun.
