Measure equivalence classification of certain right-angled Artin groups
The notion of measure equivalence between countable groups was introduced by Gromov as a measure-theoretic analogue of quasi-isometry. In this talk we look at the problem of classifying right-angled Artin groups up to measure equivalence, and we will show that if two transvection-free right-angled Artin groups are measure equivalent, then they have isomorphic extension graphs. As a consequence, two right-angled Artin groups with finite outer automorphism groups are measure equivalent if and only if they are isomorphic. This matches the quasi-isometry classification. On the other hand, we will also mention some aspects of measure equivalence classification of right-angled Artin groups which are dramatically different from the quasi-isometric classification. This is joint work with Camille Horbez.
