Abstract: Let be a -compact infinite locally compact group, and let be the set of left invariant means on . We prove in this paper that if is amenable as a discrete group, then has no exposed points. We also give another proof of the Granirer theorem that the set of -invariant means on has no exposed points, where is an amenable countable group acting ergodically as measure-preserving transformations on a nonatomic probability space .
