Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We present a simple proof of the fact that every countable group Γ is weak Rohlin, that is, there is in the Polish space double-struck A Γ of measure preserving Γ-actions an action T whose orbit in double-struck AΓ under conjugations is dense. In conjunction with earlier results this in turn yields a new characterization of non-Kazhdan groups as those groups which admit such an action T which is also ergodic.
