This volume contains the proceedings of the AMS Special Session on Unimodularity in Randomly Generated Graphs, held from October 8–9, 2016, in Denver, Colorado.
Unimodularity, a term initially used in locally compact topological groups, is one of the main examples in which the generalization from groups to graphs is successful. The “randomly generated graphs”, which include percolation graphs, random Erdős–Rényi graphs, and graphings of equivalence relations, are much easier to describe if they result as random objects in the context of unimodularity, with respect to either a vertex-transient “host”-graph or a probability measure.
This volume tries to give an impression of the various fields in which the notion currently finds strong development and application: percolation theory, point processes, ergodic theory, and dynamical systems.
Graduate students and research mathematicians interested in ergodic theory, dynamical systems, random graphs and applications.
