Multiple Mixing and Rank One Group Actions

  • Andrés del Junco (a1) and Reem Yassawi (a2)

Abstract

Suppose $G$ is a countable, Abelian group with an element of infinite order and let $\text{ }\!\!\chi\!\!\text{ }$ be a mixing rank one action of $G$ on a probability space. Suppose further that the Følner sequence $\{{{F}_{n}}\}$ indexing the towers of $\text{ }\!\!\chi\!\!\text{ }$ satisfies a “bounded intersection property”: there is a constant $p$ such that each $\{{{F}_{n}}\}$ can intersect no more than $p$ disjoint translates of $\{{{F}_{n}}\}$ . Then $\text{ }\!\!\chi\!\!\text{ }$ is mixing of all orders. When $G\,=\,\mathbf{Z}$ , this extends the results of Kalikow and Ryzhikov to a large class of “funny” rank one transformations. We follow Ryzhikov’s joining technique in our proof: the main theorem follows from showing that any pairwise independent joining of $k$ copies of $\text{ }\!\!\chi\!\!\text{ }$ is necessarily product measure. This method generalizes Ryzhikov’s technique.
