Complete metric on mixing actions of general groups. (English) Zbl 1260.37004
Let \((X, \Sigma, \mu)\) be a Lebesgue probability space and let \({\mathcal A}\) be its group of invertible measure-preserving transformations with the weak topology. In this paper, continuous homomorphisms of a topological group \({\mathcal G}\) into \({\mathcal A}\), are studied (\({\mathcal G}\)-actions).
The measure preserving \({\mathcal G}\)-action \(\{ T^g \}_{g\in {\mathcal G}}\) is “mixing” if for any \(A, B \in \Sigma\) , \[ \mu(T^gA \cap B) \to \mu(A)\mu(B) \;\;\; \text{as}\;\;\;g\to \infty . \] Continuing the author’s study of \({\mathbb Z}\)-actions in [Sb. Math. 198, No. 4, 575–596 (2007; Zbl 1140.37005)], the general case of countably infinite groups is considered. It is the purpose of this paper to give a metric on the set \({\mathcal M}_{\mathcal G}\) of the set of mixing actions of \({\mathcal G}\) so that \({\mathcal M}_{\mathcal G}\) is a complete and separable metric space.
