Ozawa's class 𝒮 for locally compact groups and unique prime factorization of group von Neumann algebras
Published online by Cambridge University Press: 19 July 2019
We study class 𝒮 for locally compact groups. We characterize locally compact groups in this class as groups having an amenable action on a boundary that is small at infinity, generalizing a theorem of Ozawa. Using this characterization, we provide new examples of groups in class 𝒮 and prove a unique prime factorization theorem for group von Neumann algebras of products of locally compact groups in this class. We also prove that class 𝒮 is a measure equivalence invariant.
