Cont. “On Connes's Rigidity Conjecture”
Abstract: A bold conjecture of Alain Connes states that all icc property (T) groups are W*-superrigid, i.e., L(G) completely remembers the group G. So far, no examples of W*-superrigid property (T) groups are known. In my talk, I will describe some positive evidence toward Connes's conjecture. This talk is based on joint work with Prof. Ionut Chifan and Krishnendu Khan.
