Séminaire Bourbaki. Volume 2005/2006. Exposés Nos. 952–966. Paris: Société Mathématique de France (ISBN 978-2-85629-230-3/pbk). Astérisque 311, 237-294, Exp. No. 961 (2007).
Summary: Using very original methods from operator algebras, Sorin Popa has shown that the orbit structure of the Bernoulli action of a property (T) group, completely remembers the group and the action. This information is even essentially contained in the crossed product von Neumann algebra. This is the first von Neumann strong rigidity theorem in the literature. The same methods allow Popa to obtain \(II_{1}\) factors with prescribed countable fundamental group.
