Title: Poisson boundary for the discrete affine group

Time/Date: 4:45-6:15, Monday, June 13, 2018.

Room: 126

Abstract: We introduce the discrete affine group of a regular tree as a finitely generated subgroup of the affine group. We describe the Poisson boundary of random walks on it as a space of configurations, and discuss metric relationship with some lamplighter groups and lamplighter graphs.
