Approximate Invariance for Ergodic Actions of Amenable Groups
Journal article, 2019
We develop in this paper some general techniques to analyze action sets of small doubling for probability measure-preserving actions of amenable groups. As an application of these techniques, we prove a dynamical generalization of Kneser's celebrated density theorem for subsets in (Z, +), valid for any countable amenable group, and we show how it can be used to establish a plethora of new inverse product set theorems for upper and lower asymptotic densities. We provide several examples demonstrating that our results are optimal for the settings under study.
