Notes of Claus Koestler’s Cambridge lecture 26012017
An elementary approach to unitary representations of Thompson’s group . Unknown wether amenable or not. Does not contain free subgroups. 1. Sources for unitary representations of 1.1. Traditional approach Characters! Theorem 1 (GohmKostler, DudkoMadzrodski) Extreme points of the set of … Continue reading

Generalizing BestvinaBrady groups using branched covers Joint with Ignat Soroko and Robert Kropholler. Initial motivation: prove that there exist uncountably many groups of type . 1. Finiteness properties Recall that is type if it has a finite , i.e. it … Continue reading

Homology Betti numbers for subfactors and quasiregular inclusions Joint with Sorin Popa and Stefan Vaes. There were several competing definitions, and they turn out to be equivalent, relief. 1. Betti numbers Associative algebras (and bimodules ) have a Hochschild cohomology … Continue reading
Notes of Andrei Zuk’s Cambridge lecture 19012017
Random walks on random symmetric groups Joint with Harald Helfgott and Akos Seres. 1. Mixing time Related to expanders: the key word is mixing time. Every finite simple group can be generated by 2 elements. This follows from the classication … Continue reading

Notes of Stefan Vaes’ second Cambridge lecture 18012017
Representation theory and cohomology for standard invariants 1. Tube algebra of a quasiregular inclusion The historical reason for the word tube will not appear… Recall that a finite index pair of factors is quasiregular if is spanned by finite index … Continue reading
Notes of Stefan Vaes 1st Cambridge lecture 17012017
Representation theory and cohomology for standard invariants We study pairs of factors, with finite. There are a bunch of discrete invariants. Standard invariants Rigid algebras Planar algebras (Jones). How can these invariants act on factors ? This is Popa’s theory. … Continue reading
