Title: Dynamics of distal group actions
Speaker: Riddhi Shah (Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi)
Date: 25 June 2014
Time: 3 pm
Venue: LH-1, Mathematics Department

An automorphism $T$ of a locally compact group is said to be distal if the closure of the $T$-orbit of any nontrivial element stays away from the identity. We discuss some properties of distal actions on groups. We will also relate distal groups with behaviour of powers of probability measures on it.
