An uncountable Mackey-Zimmer theorem
The Mackey-Zimmer theorem classifies ergodic group extensions $X$ of a measure-preserving system $Y$ by a compact group $K$, by showing that such extensions are isomorphic to a group skew-product $X
COHERENT EXTENSION OF PARTIAL AUTOMORPHISMS, FREE AMALGAMATION AND AUTOMORPHISM GROUPS
Abstract We give strengthened versions of the Herwig–Lascar and Hodkinson–Otto extension theorems for partial automorphisms of finite structures. Such strengthenings yield several combinatorial and
Cocycles and continuity
The topic of this paper is the Mackey Cocycle Theorem: every Borel almost cocycle is equivalent to a Borel strict cocycle. This is a theorem about locally compact groups which is not true for
ON A STRENGTHENING OF THE HERWIG – LASCAR EXTENSION THEOREM
The purpose of this note is to review and reorganize the proof of the Herwig–Lascar extension theorem, [2, Theorem 3.2], and to indicate how small additions to this proof can be used to obtain a
Sur les espaces mesures singuliers I - Etude metrique-mesuree
Recall Jones-Schmidt theorem that an ergodic measured equivalence relation is strongly ergodic if and only if it has no nontrivial amenable quotient. We give two new characterizations of strong
Locally compact groups appearing as ranges of cocycles of ergodic ℤ-actions
Abstract The paper contains the proof of the fact that every solvable locally compact separable group is the range of a cocycle of an ergodic automorphism. The proof is based on the theory of
An amenable equivalence relation is generated by a single transformation
Abstract We prove that for any amenable non-singular countable equivalence relation R⊂X×X, there exists a non-singular transformation T of X such that, up to a null set: It follows that any two
Orbit equivalence for Cantor minimal $\mathbb{Z}^{2}$-systems
We show that every minimal action of any finitely generated abelian group on the Cantor set is (topologically) orbit equivalent to an AF relation. As a consequence, this extends the classification up
Espaces mesurés singuliers fortement ergodiques (Étude métrique–mesurée)
D'apres le theoreme de Jones-Schmidt, une relation d'equivalence ergodique est fortement ergodique si et seulement si elle ne possede pas de quotient moyennable non trivial. Nous donnons dans cet
Quantized reduction as a tensor product
Symplectic reduction is reinterpreted as the composition of arrows in the category of integrable Poisson manifolds, whose arrows are isomorphism classes of dual pairs, with symplectic groupoids as

INDUCED REPRESENTATIONS OF LOCALLY COMPACT GROUPS I
In the theory of representations of a finite group by linear transformations the closely related notions of "imprimitivity" and of "induced representation" play a prominent role. In [18] the author

Borel structure in groups and their duals
Introduction. In the past decade or so much work has been done toward extending the classical theory of finite dimensional representations of compact groups to a theory of (not necessarily finite
