L2-betti Numbers of Discrete Measured Groupoids

  title={L2-betti Numbers of Discrete Measured Groupoids},
  author={Roman Sauer},
There are notions of L2-Betti numbers for discrete groups (Cheeger–Gromov, Lück), for type II 1-factors (recent work of Connes-Shlyakhtenko) and for countable standard equivalence relations (Gaboriau). Whereas the first two are algebraically defined using Lück’s dimension theory, Gaboriau’s definition of the latter is inspired by the work of Cheeger and Gromov. In this work we give a definition of L2-Betti numbers of discrete measured groupoids that is based on Lück’s dimension theory, thereby… CONTINUE READING
