A type I conjecture and boundary representations of hyperbolic groups

  title={A type I conjecture and boundary representations of hyperbolic groups},
  author={Pierre‐Emmanuel Caprace and Mehrdad Kalantar and Nicolas Monod},
. We establish new results on the weak containment of quasi-regular and Koopman representations of a second countable locally compact group G associated with non-singular G -spaces. We deduce that any two boundary representations of a hyperbolic locally compact group are weakly equivalent. We also show that non-amenable hyperbolic locally compact groups with a cocompact amenable subgroup are characterized by the property that any two proper length functions are homothetic up to an additive…

Riesz operators and some spherical representations for hyperbolic groups
We introduce the Riesz operator in the context of Gromov hyperbolic groups in order to investigate a one parameter family of non unitary boundary Hilbertian representations of hyperbolic groups. We
Radu groups acting on trees are CCR
We classify the irreducible unitary representations of closed simple groups of automorphisms of trees acting 2-transitively on the boundary and whose local action at every vertex contains the
A totally disconnected invitation to locally compact groups
We present a selection of results contributing to a structure theory of totally disconnected locally compact groups.


Amenable hyperbolic groups
We give a complete characterization of the locally compact groups that are nonelementary Gromov-hyperbolic and amenable. They coincide with the class of mapping tori of discrete or continuous
Continuous bounded cohomology and applications to rigidity theory
We present a theory of continuous bounded cohomology of locally compact groups with coefficients in Banach modules. A central role is played by amenable actions, as they give rise to relatively
Locally compact groups acting on trees, the type I conjecture and non-amenable von Neumann algebras
We address the problem to characterise closed type I subgroups of the automorphism group of a tree. Even in the well-studied case of Burger-Mozes' universal groups, non-type I criteria were unknown.

Abstract We show that any cocycle from an ergodic, finite measure preserving action of a higher-rank group to a closed subgroup of the isometry group of a proper, geodesic hyperbolic, ‘at most
Piecewise strongly proximal actions, free boundaries and the Neretin groups
A closed subgroup H of a locally compact group G is confined if the closure of the conjugacy class of H in the Chabauty space of G does not contain the trivial subgroup. We establish a dynamical
On spectra of Koopman, groupoid and quasi-regular representations
In this paper we investigate relations between Koopman, groupoid and quasi-regular representations of countable groups. We show that for an ergodic measure class preserving action of a countable
Cocompact amenable closed subgroups: weakly inequivalent representations in the left-regular representation
We show that if $H \leq G$ is a closed amenable and cocompact subgroup of a unimodular locally compact group, then the reduced group C*-algebra of $G$ is not simple. Equivalently, there are unitary

Let G be a locally compact group and G† its dual space, that is, the set of all unitary equivalence classes of irreducible unitary representations of G. An important tool for investigating the group
A Theorem on Unitary Representations of Semisimple Lie Groups
We show that a connected semisimple Lie group G none of whose simple constituents is compact (in particular, any connected complex semisimple group) has no nontrivial measurable unitary
Introduction. In [6] we have outlined a program for determining the structure of an arbitrary C*-algebra A in terms of its primitive images. The first step in this program is always to determine the
