Joint Probability and Ergodic Theory Seminar: Riddhi Shah, Jawaharlal Nehru University

May 8, 2015 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Dynamics of Distal Group Actions

An automorphism T of a locally compact group is said to be distal if the closure of the T-orbit of any nontrivial element stays away from the identity. We discuss some properties of distal actions on groups. We will also relate distal groups with behaviour of powers of probability measures on it.

Refreshments will be served at 12:30pm in the 3rd floor lounge of Hanes Hall
