Benjamin Weiss (HUJI) On the construction of measure distal transformations


Abstract: I will explain what measure distal transformations are
and describe some new constructions obtained with Eli Glasner.
These answer, inter alia, a question recently raised by Ibarlucia and Tsankov
concerning the existence of strongly ergodic non compact distal actions of the
free group.
