Applications of Lie Theory to Daws' Conjecture on Ultrapowers of Locally Compact Group Algebras
School of Mathematics, Institute for Research in Fundamental Science, Tehran, Iran
Focusing on the fact that a locally compact group G may be approximated by Lie groups, we show that for a given locally compact group G, L1(G) is ultra-amenable if and only if G is finite. Thus we answer a question raised by M. Daws in 2009.
Keywords: Locally compact group, Lie group, semisimple Lie group, ultrapower, group algebra.
