The Rapid Decay Property for Groups

Indira Chatterji (Cornell University)

Abstract: The property of Rapid Decay is a property of convolution operators that captures certain aspects of the asymptotic geometry of a finitely generated group. In this talk I will give a basic explanation of that property, and describe a theorem joint with Kim Ruane that all lattices in a rank one Lie group have the Rapid Decay property.
