Abstract. We investigate unimodular random networks. Our motivations include their characterization via reversibility of an associated random walk and their similarities to unimodular quasitransitive graphs. We extend various theorems concerning random walks, percolation, spanning forests, and amenability from the known context of unimodular quasitransitive graphs to the more general context of unimodular random networks. We give properties of a trace associated to unimodular random networks with applications

Working within the framework of descriptive set theory, we show that the isomorphism relation for finitely generated groups is a universal essentially countable Borel equivalence relation. We also prove the corresponding result for the conjugacy relation for subgroups of the free group on two generators. The proofs are grouptheoretic, and we refer to descriptive set theory only for the relevant definitions and for motivation for the results. Introduction Given a class K of structures for a fixed first order language L, one may ask what kinds of complete invariants can be used to classify the elements of K up to isomorphism. For those classes consisting of the countable models of some L ! 1 ;! sentence, Friedman and Stanley [FS] proposed to use the methods of descriptive set theory to study their possible invariants and defined the notion of Borel reducibility between such classes of structures. In [HK], Hjorth and Kechris continued this study and situated it within the general the...

A topological version of the Bergman property
"... ABSTRACT. A topological group G is defined to have property (OB) if any Gaction by isometries on a metric space, which is separately continuous, has bounded orbits. We study this topological analogue of strong uncountable cofinality in the context of Polish groups, where we show it to have several ..."

ABSTRACT. A topological group G is defined to have property (OB) if any Gaction by isometries on a metric space, which is separately continuous, has bounded orbits. We study this topological analogue of strong uncountable cofinality in the context of Polish groups, where we show it to have several interesting reformulations and consequences. We subsequently apply the results obtained in order to verify property (OB) for a number of groups of isometries and homeomorphism groups of compact metric spaces. We also give a proof that the isometry group of the rational Urysohn metric space of diameter 1 has strong uncountable cofinality. 1.

"... Abstract. Let F a finite field. We show that the universal characteristic factor for the GowersHostKra uniformity seminorm Uk (X) for an ergodic action (Tg)g∈Fω of the infinite abelian group Fω on a probability space X = (X, B, µ) is generated by phase polynomials φ: X → S1 of degree less than C(k ..."

Abstract. Let F a finite field. We show that the universal characteristic factor for the GowersHostKra uniformity seminorm Uk (X) for an ergodic action (Tg)g∈Fω of the infinite abelian group Fω on a probability space X = (X, B, µ) is generated by phase polynomials φ: X → S1 of degree less than C(k) on X, where C(k) depends only on k. In the case where k � char(F) we obtain the sharp result C(k) = k. This is a finite field counterpart of an analogous result for Z by Host and Kra [18]. In a companion paper [27] to this paper, we shall combine this result with a correspondence principle to establish the inverse theorem for the Gowers norm in finite fields in the high characteristic case k � char(F), with a partial result in low characteristic. 1.
