Stallings' foldings and cost of treeable equivalence relations (Part 2)

Anush Tserunyan (UIUC)

Abstract: Introduced by Levitt and extensively developed by Gaboriau, cost is a very useful real-valued invariant for probability measure preserving countable equivalence relations that measures the infimum amount of edges needed to connect a.e. equivalence class in a uniformly Borel fashion. We discuss Gaboriau's original proof of his Fundamental Theorem of Cost, which states that the cost of a treeable equivalence relation is achieved by any Borel treeing of it.
