We give a survey of various recent developments in orbit equivalence and measured group theory. This subject aims at studying infinite countable groups through their measure preserving actions. 
Rigidity for von Neumann algebras and their invariants
We give a survey of recent classification results for crossed product von Neumann algebras arising from measure preserving group actions on probability spaces. This includes II_1 factors with
Classification and rigidity for von Neumann algebras
In this talk, I will survey recent progress made on the classification of von Neumann algebras arising from countable groups and their actions on probability spaces. In particular, I will present the

The notion of an amenable equivalence relation was introduced by Zimmer in the course of his analysis of orbit equivalence relations in ergodic theory (see [12]). More recently it played an important
Invariants of orbit equivalence relations and Baumslag-Solitar groups
To an ergodic, essentially free and measure-preserving action of a non-amenable Baumslag-Solitar group on a standard probability space, a flow is associated. The isomorphism class of the flow is

Abstract We present amalgamated free products satisfying coupling rigidity with respect to the automorphism group of the associated Bass–Serre tree. As an application, we obtain orbit equivalence
Highly faithful actions and dense free subgroups in full groups
In this paper, we show that every measure-preserving ergodic equivalence relation of cost less than m comes from a "rich" faithful invariant random subgroup of the free group on m generators,
On acylindrical hyperbolicity of groups with positive first ℓ2‐Betti number
We prove that every finitely presented group with positive first ℓ2 ‐Betti number that virtually surjects onto Z is acylindrically hyperbolic. In particular, this implies acylindrical hyperbolicity
Lie groupoids, pseudodifferential calculus, and index theory
Alain Connes introduced the use of Lie groupoids in noncommutative geometry in his pioneering work on the index theory of foliations. In the present paper, we recall the basic notion involved:
The number of topological generators for full groups of ergodic equivalence relations
We completely elucidate the relationship between two invariants associated with an ergodic probability measure-preserving (pmp) equivalence relation, namely its cost and the minimal number of

Orbit inequivalent actions for groups containing a copy of F 2
We prove that if a countable group contains a copy of F2, then it admits uncountably many non orbit equivalent actions.
A SURVEY OF MEASURED GROUP THEORY
The title refers to the area of research which studies infinite groups using measure-theoretic tools, and studies the restrictions that group structure imposes on er- godic theory of their actions.
Orbit equivalence rigidity for ergodic actions of the mapping class group

Property T and asymptotically invariant sequences
A countable group Γ has property T of Kazhdan if and only if no measure preserving ergodic action of Γ has non-trivial asymptotically invariant sets.

Abstract Given a measure-preserving equivalence relation R with countable classes, we study relations between the properties of R and metric invariants. We give applications to pseudogroups of
