Description

The Banach-Tarski paradox led von Neumann in 1929 to the definition of amenability for groups - this phenomenon later was reformulated and found applications in various subjects in mathematics such as geometric group theory, functional analysis, probability, operator algebras etc. In this talk we will discuss amenability from a group theorist' point of view with a glance on its geometric and probabilistic properties.
