Abstract

In the first chapter, we characterize p-adic linear algebraic groups with the Haagerup Property. We also characterize connected Lie groups having the Haagerup Property viewed as discrete groups, and we provide an example of a finitely presented group not having the Haagerup Property, but having no infinite subgroup with relative Property (T). This example motivates the introduction in the second chapter of the relative Property (T) for an arbitrary subset of a locally compact group. In a connected Lie group, we characterize the subsets with relative Property (T). We introduce a notion of "resolutions" so as to extend the latter results to lattices in connected Lie groups. In the third chapter, we characterize connected Lie groups having a dense finitely generated subgroup with Property (T). In the fourth chapter, we provide an example of a finitely presented group having Property (T), non-Hopfian, and with infinite outer automorphism group. In the fifth chapter, we characterize locally nilpotent groups for which all unitary representations have vanishing reduced 1-cohomology. In the sixth chapter, we show that if F is a finite perfect group, and X is any set, then the unrestricted direct product FX is strongly bounded. This means that it has no isometric action on any metric space with unbounded orbits. Finally in the seventh chapter, we collect several short notes, including a list of open questions.

Group of Lie type

In mathematics, specifically in group theory, the phrase group of Lie type usually refers to finite groups that are closely related to the group of rational points of a reductive linear algebraic group with values in a finite field. The phrase group of Lie type does not have a widely accepted precise definition, but the important collection of finite simple groups of Lie type does have a precise definition, and they make up most of the groups in the classification of finite simple groups.

Compact group

In mathematics, a compact (topological) group is a topological group whose topology realizes it as a compact topological space (when an element of the group is operated on, the result is also within the group). Compact groups are a natural generalization of finite groups with the discrete topology and have properties that carry over in significant fashion. Compact groups have a well-understood theory, in relation to group actions and representation theory. In the following we will assume all groups are Hausdorff spaces.

Lie group

In mathematics, a Lie group (pronounced liː ) is a group that is also a differentiable manifold. A manifold is a space that locally resembles Euclidean space, whereas groups define the abstract concept of a binary operation along with the additional properties it must have to be thought of as a "transformation" in the abstract sense, for instance multiplication and the taking of inverses (division), or equivalently, the concept of addition and the taking of inverses (subtraction).

Ulam asked whether all Lie groups can be represented faithfully on a countable set. We establish a reduction of Ulam's problem to the case of simple Lie groups. In particular, we solve the problem for all solvable Lie groups and more generally Lie groups w ...
