Zero Entropy Is Generic
AbstractDan Rudolph showed that for an amenable group, Γ, the generic measure-preserving action of Γ on a Lebesgue space has zero entropy. Here, this is extended to nonamenable groups. In fact, the proof shows that every action is a factor of a zero entropy action! This uses the strange phenomena that in the presence of nonamenability, entropy can increase under a factor map. The proof uses Seward’s recent generalization of Sinai’s Factor Theorem, the Gaboriau–Lyons result and my theorem that for every nonabelian free group, all Bernoulli shifts factor onto each other.
