# A canonical arithmetic quotient for actions of lattices in by David Fisher

By David Fisher

During this paper we produce an invariant for any ergodic, finite entropy motion of a lattice in an easy Lie team on a finite degree house. The invariant is basically an equivalence category of measurable quotients of a definite sort. The quotients are basically double coset areas and are created from a Lie team, a compact subgroup of the Lie staff, and a commensurability classification of lattices within the Lie workforce.

The Isomorphism Problem in Coxeter Groups

The publication is the 1st to provide a accomplished review of the ideas and instruments presently getting used within the learn of combinatorial difficulties in Coxeter teams. it truly is self-contained, and available even to complicated undergraduate scholars of arithmetic. the first objective of the booklet is to focus on approximations to the tough isomorphism challenge in Coxeter teams.

Critical densities for various properties A bunch of properties are now known to hold for random groups. This ranges from group combinatorics (small cancellation properties) to algebra (freeness of subgroups) to geometry (boundary at infinity, growth exponent, CAT(0)-ness) to probability (random walk in the group) to representation theory on the Hilbert space (property (T ), Haagerup property). Some of the properties studied here are intrinsic to the group, others depend on a marked set of generators or on the standard presentation through which the random group was obtained.

But they probably extend to small positive values of d, the determination of which is an interesting problem. The first such theorem [AO96] is the following: Theorem 17 – With overwhelming probability in the few-relator model of random groups with m generators and n relators, any subgroup generated by m − 1 elements is free. ). When the m − 1 generators of the subgroup are chosen among the m standard generators of the group, this is a particular case of Theorem 6. The group itself is not free and more precisely [Ar97]: Theorem 18 – In the few-relator model of random groups with n relators, no finite-index subgroup of the group is free.

Let 0 d 1 and let W be the set of all (2m) words of length in ’s. Let R be the random set obtained by picking (2m)d times at the a±1 i random a word in W . Typical elements in a group 51 Let G = G0 / R be the random quotient so obtained. Then with overwhelming probability: • If d < dcrit , then G is (non-elementary) hyperbolic. • If d > dcrit , then G = {e}. Once again the spirit of the density model is to kill a number of words equal to some power d of the total number of words (2m) . Note that dcrit < 1/2, even when G0 is the free group (the difference with Theorem 11 being that we use plain words instead of reduced ones).
