Title: Dynamics of Distal Group Actions
Speaker: Ridhdi Shah
Date: 25 June 2014
Time: 3-4 pm
Venue: LH 1
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.
